Accreditation & Certification

“The NADD Accreditation/Certification Program is an important tool for state agencies, DD and MH, that are interested in expanding their community infrastructure to support people with co-occurring developmental disabilities and mental illnesses.…NCI data have consistently documented over the years that approximately 32% of all people receiving DD services have a mental illness. The NADD Accreditation/ Certification Program offers an important tool to states and providers interested in improving their efforts to serve this group of individuals.”
