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:
Cognitive remediation, to include assistance with obtaining and use of assistive technology
Behavioral supports that assist with self-identification of antecedent triggers and learning coping and compensatory strategies
Sobriety support development, to include assistance in seeking substance abuse and co-occurring disorders services
Self-advocacy skill development and application to assist with navigating the service system, which includes opportunities to learn about brain injury and individual needs
Treatment to address struggles with daily activities such as grooming, budgeting, shopping, household maintenance, etc.
Prescriptive programming to promote generalization of skills and advance gains in out-patient treatment (OT, SLP & PT)
Structured leisure time activities, community accessibility and safety (transportation provided, as appropriate, for goal related activities)
Assistance with pursuit of education and employment
Progressive physical strengthening, fitness and retraining
Health and wellness management, including medication management and dietary/nutrition support
Assistance in coordinating and obtaining preventative, appropriate and timely medical and dental care, and any other professional services necessary to health and well-being
Assistance and education to family, providers and other support system interests
Transitional support and training Assistance with preparation for transition to less intensive services
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).
