Our service is based at the Horizon Day Assessment and Treatment Unit. We provide longer-term day treatment for adults with intellectual disabilities and significant levels of need.
We also provide short-term placements for people who have intellectual disabilities and complex needs that cannot be assessed or treated within mainstream or community health settings.
Complex needs invclude severely challenging behaviour, mental health problems or significant health needs that require specialist investigation such as epilepsy, disorders of appetite, or dementia.
Our service is available to those aged over 18.
