No two brain injuries are identical—and therefore no two treatment plans should be either. Individual patients require individual solutions, and that’s why NRI offers personalized treatment options featuring hospital-based care and residential care.
NRI’s hospital-based inpatient program was designed to meet the needs of individuals who require around-the-clock monitoring and intensive medical care. Treatment takes place in our specially-designed facility, which includes 11,000 square-feet of self-contained residential, treatment and recreational space. In addition, an adjacent building, known as the Brookhaven Annex, provides over 7,000 square-feet of remodeled space for recreation and home training skills.
For individuals with a brain injury, community reintegration can be a slow and painful process, often taking several years. That’s why we also offer two long-term transitional and supported living programs that provide a safe, home-like environment where individuals can continue to recover with the help of experienced medical and rehabilitation professionals.
While undergoing community rehabilitation and recovery, patients stay in a comfortable, home-like setting designed to promote healing and maximize the patient’s sense of independence and normalcy. During their time in NRI’s Transitional Living Program, patients are encouraged to become responsible for their everyday needs to achieve greater levels of freedom and independence.
When it comes to treating traumatic brain injuries, it takes more than ordinary health care to deliver life-changing results. In fact, NRI receives many referrals from rehabilitation facilities and case managers around the country that are incapable of addressing the needs of patients with a complex, severe brain injury. At NRI, we are committed to serving this population.
We believe that individuals with moderate to severe disabilities resulting from a neurologic injury or disease can return to satisfying and productive lives. That is our vision—and our mission. We value these individuals and feel they are entitled to a life of dignity and self-respect. We believe that by working together and never giving up, positive results will be achieved.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), also known as intracranial injury, is commonly caused by vehicle accidents, bad falls and violence. A TBI occurs when there is an external blow to the brain. Brain injuries are often classified by severity – mild, moderate or severe. Diagnosis of all head injuries should be done by a trained medical professional as soon as warning signs or symptoms appear. TBI patients experience complications from memory loss and sleep deprivation to internal hemorrhaging and possibly death. With early treatment for traumatic and severe brain injuries, the future quality of life can be improved.
Brain injuries often have a wide array of both physical and psychological effects. Additionally many TBI symptoms have a delayed onset, which makes diagnosis significantly more difficult. Mild brain injuries, or concussions, may include dizziness, sleep disturbances, headaches, and a loss of consciousness for a few seconds. Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries include many of the same symptoms of less severe injuries, but usually more dramatic symptoms such as slurred speech, repeated vomiting, loss of bladder control and seizures are present.
