Protective Services for Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Lane County DDS has the responsibility to assure protective services for individuals with developmental disabilities who are over 18 years of age. These services are provided when abuse or neglect is suspected. Adult abuse may include physical, verbal, financial and sexual abuse, as well as abandonment, wrongful restraint, neglect and death. DDS employees and other community professionals are mandatory reporters of abuse. To report suspected abuse or neglect, contact the Lane County Developmental Disabilities Abuse Reporting Line at (541) 682-3884.
