AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)
The Riverside University Health System – Behavioral Health does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. It is committed to ensuring that its programs, services, and activities are fully accessible to and usable by people with disabilities.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 provides civil rights protections and equal opportunities to individuals with disabilities. The ADA protects three categories of individuals from discrimination based on that disability:
- Those who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
- Those who have a record of a physical or mental impairment that substantially limited one or more of the individual’s major life activities, including people who have recovered from mental or emotional illness, drug addiction, heart disease, or cancer.
- Those who are regarded as having such a disability, regardless of whether they have the disability.
We provide reasonable accommodations in an integrated setting to ensure individuals with disabilities are not excluded from regular programs and to ensure overall program access.
