Our Neurobehavioral Program is an inpatient community reintegration program. After sustaining an acquired brain injury (ABI) you may find yourself struggling to control your emotions and behavior, which interferes with your ability to get along with others. Furthermore, you may have problems with attention, memory, and other aspects of thinking which hinder your ability to complete tasks. Our interdisciplinary team’s goal is to help you manage and stabilize your emotions and behaviors when challenges arise. We work to help you establish coping strategies, regain life skills, and develop healthy lifestyle habits which are necessary for healthy well-being.

The Neurobehavioral Program is suitable for adults (18 and older) who have a documented diagnosis of ABI and demonstrate emotional and behavioral disturbances that interfere with placement in a less restrictive setting and require a secure environment. Prospective patients must have an involuntary conservator of person and estate, and be Medicaid-eligible.
Our ultimate goal is to re-integrate you into the community with the minimal level of supportive services that you need to maintain a successful life. We work with service providers to find the appropriate community supports to facilitate your transition. If you are unable to return home, we will discuss alternative discharge options with you, your conservator, and your family.
