At Rock Creek Foundation, we believe that having a disability
and/or a mental illness should not prevent anyone from having the
opportunity to participate in everyday life. Thats why we have been
pioneering the field of behavioral health services for the
dually-diagnosed: people living with developmental disabilities as
well as severe and persistent mental illness. We want to ensure
that each person we serve can develop the skills they need to live
as independently as possible, in their own communities and is able
to realize his or her potential in ways that they could not do so
