The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) is authorized to continue habilitation of Respondent, an individual diagnosed with Moderate Mental Retardation, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, and Autism, as an inpatient in its facility.  Respondent’s violent reactions to adversity warrant continued habilitation as an inpatient and more progress in controlling his violent outbursts must be made before he can be moved to a less restrictive environment in the community.
