You Are Not Alone…We Are Here to Help!
If you or someone you love has sustained an acquired brain injury, there is a place to go for continued rehabilitation, education, support, and community!
Schurig Center offers an array of post-acute rehabilitative and supportive services for survivors of brain injuries and their families. Based on neuroscience and current rehabilitative knowledge, our programs are considered a model in the advancing field of brain injury recovery. All services are facilitated by trained professionals with experience in the field of brain injury, or whose training is applicable to the needs of the clients who attend Schurig Center. Many of the staff have graduate degrees in psychology, art therapy, or social work.
Services are provided in a welcoming community center atmosphere where all individuals are accepted as they are. The center is a safe place where survivors and their families can share their experiences with one another and learn to cope with the changes in their lives.

The Importance of Post-Acute Rehabilitation is Clearer Than Ever Before!
Neuroscience research has concluded that the brain has an amazing capacity to rehabilitate after an injury. This neuroplasticity means that the brain can actually change both in physical structure and in functional organization. For this to take place, the brain needs to be actively engaged and challenged. This process of rehabilitation can take months, even years, to reach its potential. This is where Schurig Center comes in on the continuum of care, providing long-term, affordable rehabilitative services.
