How Schurig Center Can Help Your Patients/Clients
At Schurig Center, we understand the unique challenges that come with the recovery process after a brain injury. After leaving the hospital and returning home, many survivors and their families express feeling lost, alone, without a plan, and not sure what to do next. That’s where we help!
Schurig Center is a non-profit community center that picks up where the healthcare system leaves off by providing support and guidance, brain injury education, a sense of community, and a range of therapeutic classes to aid in the continued improvement of skills and abilities. Our services are offered on an outpatient basis and are facilitated by professionals with experience in the field of brain injury rehabilitation and support.
Harnessing the healing power of community, Schurig Center also provides a welcoming space for both survivors and family members to connect with one another. This shared support with others who understand helps to infuse more acceptance and hope into the recovery process. We provide a place for people to gather, learn, rehabilitate, discuss challenges, share triumphs, and hopefully, live their best life possible.
Schurig Center’s services are designed to continue the therapeutic process after being discharged from insurance covered outpatient services, offering continued treatment for as long as a client benefits from attending. Most of our services are offered in a class setting. If Schurig Center does not have the service someone is seeking, we offer resource referral assistance to help them find the community resources they need.
We offer a ‘whole person’ approach designed to support a person’s cognitive, social, psychological, physical, and spiritual well-being. Curriculum is based on each client’s unique needs and personal goals. Objective and subjective outcome measures are used to help track improvement. Through Schurig Center’s array of services a person can:
- Start to normalize what has happened to them and adjust to life changes after injury.
- Practice and learn coping and compensatory strategies with peers for a range of disabilities that may occur after a brain injury.
- Improve their abilities in areas such as speech, communication, memory, focus, concentration, and executive functioning in therapeutic groups and classes.
- Reduce their isolation and connect with a community of support with peers and professionals who understand life after a brain injury.
- Participate in opportunities for socialization and community integration.
- Receive information and education to better understand the effects of the injury they have experienced.
- Receive support finding other services in the community.
Who Schurig Center Serves
Schurig Center’s services are created for adults (18 years and older) living with the effects of an acquired brain injury caused by traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, tumor, anoxia/lack of oxygen, viral infection, accidents, and other causes. Our goal is to help a person continue their recovery process after they have completed their initial rehabilitation after injury and/or their insurance has discontinued coverage of continued therapy. We also provide supportive and educational services for family members who are caring for a loved one living with a brain injury.
Participants must be able to independently perform personal care activities, such as using the restroom and moving about on their own, or have a caregiver available to attend our programs with the participant to assist them with these activities. We do not provide hands-on care or physical assistance. Exclusion criteria for our services include unmanaged seizure disorder, active substance abuse or psychiatric disorder, or verbally or physically aggressive behavior.
How to Make a Referral
A doctor’s referral is not needed to attend Schurig Center’s programs. Simply direct your client to contact Schurig Center at (415) 461-6771 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A staff member completes an intake with each person to determine if our services are a good fit for their goals and needs.
Schurig Center’s services are private pay, fee based, and offered at affordable rates. Scholarships are available for people who demonstrate financial need.

We do not provide:
- Case management
- Caregiving or in-home caregiving
- Medical care, diagnostics, or procedures
