New Leaf, Queensville, Ontaria. "We are a rural therapeutic community for dual-diagnosed adults. Our residents must be clinically diagnosed as developmentally disabled. They are also diagnosed as having other problem(s), e.g., psychiatric, emotional, behavioral, physical or social, which would, and do, preclude their admittance to the “usual” group homes for the developmentally disabled. That is: New Leaf is not meant for everyone but provides an alternative for those disabled who, because they cannot comply with, or fit, the expectations of most group homes, are in danger of being moved from home to home or perhaps institutionalized."
