"Brain and/or spinal cord injury can last a lifetime,
but it doesn’t have to cost a lifetime."

Where do I go? What do I do? What happens next?
Our staff strives to provide support, information, resources and referrals to survivors, family members, caregivers and professionals.
Because each situation is different, each call is handled differently. We personalize each call to assure you are receiving the best and most pertinent information we have available. If we don't know the answer or can't help you deal with what you are going through, we will find someone who does and can.
BIAMS /USAMS has a resource center that houses informational pamphlets, workbooks, brochures, and books. These materials are available to anyone at no charge. We personalize each packet of information that is sent out from our office.
Some of the topics available to assist survivors and/or caregivers include:
Adult Day Centers
Brain/Spinal Cord Injury in General
Brain/Spinal Cord Injury in Pediatrics
Coping Strategies and Support
Fall Prevention in Senior Adults
Rehabilitation (Inpatient and Outpatient)

TBI Continuum of Care - After Leaving the Hospital
The diagram below depicts brain injury treatment in an orderly progression from trauma care to community integration. But very little about brain injury is orderly. Individuals who sustain brain injuries may enter, exit and re-enter treatment at any point along the continuum. Treatment may be needed continuously or on an intermittent basis throughout the individual's lifespan
