Services of The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center

Services

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center bridges the gap between traditional rehabilitative therapy and a successful return to community living. Our program addresses the whole person, based upon evaluations and assessments, to determine the specific needs of each individual. Clinical studies have shown that holistic rehabilitation improves overall community functioning in individuals with brain injury.*

Our team approach targets cognitive training, speech therapy, counseling, residential living, and vocational exploration. We also provide case management and nursing services. Additionally, we offerneuropsychological and psychological testing services.

After discharge, we encourage participation in our weekly Survivors Group on Tuesdays at 1:00 PM, which is open to all former program participants. We also facilitate the Brain Injury Support Group of the Black Hills, which is open to brain injury survivors, their family members, and professionals. This group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM at The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center. For more information on this and other brain injury support groups, please visit our Advocacy and Resources link.
