Medical Director – Thomas Park, MD
Breaking Barriers Rehab Center was founded in 1998. Our program addresses the psychiatric, cognitive, behavioral and physical dynamics associated with brain injury. Through the use of individual and group activities, individuals are assisted with processing grief and remediation of basic and advanced cognitive processing skills. We aim for our clients to develop compensatory strategies in an effort to resume productive and purposeful functioning in the home, community and vocational environments.
While all individual injuries and subsequent problems are unique, the majority of clients share a common loss of functioning and independence, as well as associated grief. Clients are provided an environment in which they are both supported and challenged in order to increase their understanding of their own injuries and limitations and formulate a gradual return to functioning in a safe, healthy and consistent manner. Education and instruction are provided regarding basic and advanced functioning following a traumatic brain or catastrophic injury.
Through the implementation of innovative therapies, BBRC is committed to helping clients achieve their greatest rehabilitation potential by helping to remove obstacles and offering opportunities for recovery.
