Intellectual Disabilities

The intellectual disabilities division serves a diverse group of individuals in the south and east-central Alabama regions who have intellectual disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other diagnoses.


AltaPointe Health was founded in 1957 and is now the largest Health and Human Services organization in Alabama.

In 2016, Cheaha Regional Mental Health Center (CRMHC) in Sylacauga merged with AltaPointe Health and offers intellectual disabilities programs and services such as day rehabilitation and residential services in Talladega and Clay counties.  Case management services are located in Talladega, Clay, Coosa and Randolph counties.

In 2019, Mobile Arc (MARC), a non-profit founded in 1956 in Mobile by a group of parents whose children had intellectual disabilities, merged with AltaPointe Health. More than 400 individuals at two locations and five residences in Mobile County can participate in a variety of services through day, residential and supported employment programs.

These programs create opportunities for education, employment, housing, transportation, and recreation.

AltaPointe Health remains as committed today to the well-being, dignity and rights of people with intellectual disabilities as did the original founders of Mobile Arc and Cheaha Mental Health Center.
