HCRT TBI Community Re-entry Support Groups


HCRT is offering 5 client focused groups that are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with TBI who are unable to access the community and do the activities they enjoy without support.  Clients are in charge of working together to plan the activities they can participate in as a group with persons with similar life circumstances.  They benefit cognitively and socially from completing the planning process together while learning about the many community resources available to them.  All groups are led by a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) and the vast majority of participants receive 1:1 assist from a CTRS.
