Helping you adapt to a life without substance use.
The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Network treats adults dealing with both brain injury and drug or alcohol abuse. You benefit from coordinated outpatient treatment that combines community resources and family support to help you adapt to a new life without substance use.
The TBI Network serves residents of Franklin County, Ohio, with brain injuries who also have a diagnosed substance use disorder. Brain injury and substance abuse often go hand-in-hand. For many people, alcohol or drug use directly led to their brain injury. It is also common for those with TBI to turn to substance use as a way of coping with the frustration or depression that can accompany their injury.
