A New Leaf (ANL) is recognized as an industry leader in our area for serving adults with developmental disabilities.  However, nearly 60% of ANL clients (well above the national average of 33%) also have a mental health condition.  This combination of diagnosis presents unique behavior challenges for both the care providers and the client in achieving personal goals toward independent employment and living.  The Dual Diagnosis Behavior Support program works with ANL direct care providers and clients to aid clients with a dual diagnosis to prevent behavior challenges before they occur.
