Dungarvin Services

Behavioral Challenges

Through extensive training of our staff and expertise at all levels of the agency, Dungarvin has proven to be successful in providing supports to those individuals who have behavioral challenges.

Dungarvin has a reputation for supporting people who have a variety of complicated support needs. In coordination with other pertinent parties, we develop behavior plans and train staff in behavior management techniques and interventions, emphasizing positive methods and strategies in order to minimizing the loss of individual rights. Our behavior supports vary in our locations and may or may not include assessment, consultation, individual counseling, and/or group counseling.

Some of the areas in which Dungarvin provides supports to those with behavioral challenges are outlined below.

Supported Sobriety

Supported Sobriety is an unique 24-hour, recovery-oriented, person centered support service for adults living with concurring disorders; Developmental Disabilities and Substance Use Disorders. We can provide supports to adults with developmental disabilities in their home with this unique program that incorporates the 12-step model by specially trained staff. This curriculum assists those living with co-occurring disorders and ASD and other learning disorders, to acquire the necessary comprehension of the disease of addiction and competency with recovery tools in order to achieve and maintain sobriety.

Day Services

Our Day Services programs offer a variety of supports for people with Intellectual and Development Disabilities. Depending on the location, services available may include a combination of supports such as community integration, base site programming, employment opportunities, problem-solving and decision-making in everyday living, participating in community events and leisure activities, or assisting people to prepare for vocational, recreational, or other community-based programs.

In-Home Services

In-Home services are developed to provide supports to a child, adolescent or adult living with his or her family or in their own living environment. We serve individuals with a broad range of abilities and needs and our in-home services vary. The person and the family design the level of support and service that is needed.

Vocational Services

Vocational services provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities assistance with the initial stages of the employment assessment period, job searching and development, job coaching, and working independently.

Residential Services

Residential services are provided to an individual living in his or her own home or apartment with or without roommates, depending on the location. These sites serve individuals of various need levels, including individuals with significant medical, physical, or behavioral challenges. Staffing levels vary by the needs of the people being served. The focus of these services is to enhance independence and quality of life. Dungarvin's residential services are very flexible and easily modified to meet changing abilities, interests, choices, and needs of individuals.

Host Home Services

The Host Home model allows an individual to live in a private residence with a family or caregiver (non-related parent, guardian or spouse) rather than in an apartment or group home. Host Home providers are not Dungarvin employees; they are independent contractors and manage their own home business. Host Home families or caregivers assist the individual in developing skills and building relationships in the community, the family, and their own personal life. Host Home living is highly flexible and focused on personal choice.
