Community-based Neurobehavioral Rehabilitation

Treatment at our community-based residential rehabilitation centers focuses on working with participants as they become more independent with everyday activities of daily living and as they achieve greater freedom and independence.  Recovery is maximized by providing a wide range of interventions designed to achieve individualized goals.  Depending on the participant and family needs, a highly structured, flexible, supportive and professionally developed treatment program may include:

Our community-based residential treatment centers are located in residential neighborhoods and are designed to offer a safe, “real life” environment.  We believe that individuals with a brain injury can best generalize their gains into a community setting when they receive services in the community, thus promoting the reacquisition of daily living skills and the use of strategies that will maximize access to community living options.  Participants are fully informed about their health and medical condition and have the opportunity to participate in the planning of total care and treatment.  Each participant is encouraged and assisted, throughout the rehabilitation process, to exercise their rights and may voice grievances and recommend changes in policies and services.  Participants develop their skills with the assistance of program staff, a majority of whom are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS) or who are in process of certification (Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists).

Discharge from CNR’s Residential Brain Injury Rehabilitation program occurs when the multidisciplinary team determines the participant’s needs could be better met at a different level of care. On average, 76% of participants discharge to a lower level of care, often receiving supports from other Medicaid providers or with natural supports in their home communities. CNR additionally offers an Intermittent In-Home Brain Injury Rehabilitation program which is utilized to assist in the durability of outcomes in the transition from our residential program to living in their own homes.
