Neurobehavioral Rehabilitation is a community based residential and clinical program for those who experience uncharacteristic aggression, prolonged confusion, or an escalation of behavioral health issues following a brain injury. A team of experts in neurobehavioral rehabilitation, combined with a calming, therapeutic environment, provides an opportunity for optimal recovery.
Our program is unique compared to more traditional post-hospital rehabilitation programs. With a focus on modifying challenging behaviors through specialized strategies and adaptations, you or your loved one can overcome difficult cognitive and behavioral challenges and continue the journey toward functional, real-world independence. Those in the program benefit from:
- Individualized behavior plan development and ongoing monitoring
