Members of the staff, who have expertise in brain injury, substance abuse treatment, vocational rehabilitation, case management, community outreach, counseling and family dynamics, also help to educate clients and their families about substance use and brain injury. The staff works with existing service agencies in Franklin County to gain access and assure appropriate treatment for patients, and the staff consults with professionals from other agencies to assist them in understanding the unique problems of individual clients, particularly the cognitive and emotional changes resulting from brain damage. TBI Network staff members take responsibility for convening meetings of "ad hoc" community teams of providers involved with each client. Each team has unique membership because of the differing array of agency professionals involved with each client.
At the Traumatic Brain Injury Network, our multidisciplinary team collaborates to translate discoveries into life-changing treatments.
