ABOUT DIDLAKE INCORPORATED
Didlake Incorporated, located in Manassas, Va., offers outpatient services to adults with disabilities and for those struggling with substance abuse. The mission of the organization is to create opportunities that will enrich the lives of people with disabilities. The facility serves residents in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia with many different types of disabilities from autism to visual/hearing impairments, substance abuse/addiction to traumatic brain injuries. In fulfillment of the organization’s mission, 78 percent of Didlake employees are individuals with disabilities.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Didlake provides support for individuals and families with disabilities through job support and training, day-support services, employment assistance with competitive wages and benefits, and assistance for individuals to follow a path for upward mobility.
The facility’s licensed day support program aims to link people with disabilities to valued social roles in their community. Each participant receives an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to focus on skill development including social/communication skills, personal care tasks, and self-awareness/self-advocacy skills. Participants also receive cooking classes, fitness activities, arts and crafts, and education on current events.
Didlake uses an assessment process to match individuals with the opportunities that are a right fit for them and will help them maintain employment long-term. Supported employment programs are offered through both individual and group supported employment. Individual support assists businesses with screening, job training, and continuing support at no cost to the business for the employee. Group support provides on-site supervision, training, counseling, advocacy, and support for the employees with disabilities.
According to its website, Didlake employs more than 1,300 people, including people with disabilities. It is one of the 50 (22.4 percent) of Virginia treatment facilities that are CARF-accredited.

Worst job ever!” wrote H.H. However, Sean wrote: "They help people in so many ways and have a great team of people here in Manassas."
