Question:

Do you know of any drug rehabilitation centers that are provied for ppl with a spinal cord injury?? Please respond as soon as possible!!! This is a very critical situation where my brother has a spinal coed injury, and has started to re-use heavy drugs and alcohol!! He needs help, and we neeed a rehabilitation cenetr that will provide for his spinal cord injury as well as his drug and alcohol addiction. Thank you very very much!!!

Answer:

There are many excellent rehabilitation hospitals across the country that, in addition to regular rehabilitation, offer counseling for individuals with disabilities.

A quick route would be for you to simply chat with your physiatrist (rehabilitation doctor), who should be organizing the SCI patient's care. If he/she is a physiatrist specializing in SCI (which, hopefully, he/she is), then they will know of resources in your area.
