Acquired Brain Injury

Acquired Brain Injury

​DORS has specialized services for people whose primary disability is acquired brain injury (ABI).  An acquired brain injury is an injury to the brain that was not present at birth.  The ABI could be the result of a traumatic event like a motor vehicle accident, fall, assault, sports injury or concussion, or it could be a non-traumatic event like a brain aneurysm, brain tumor, stroke or infection.

DORS works with our community partners to provide individualized, long-term, and ongoing support services to people with ABI to help them get and keep a job.

You might be eligible if:

  • You are eligible for DORS services with a "most significant" disability.
  • Your primary disability is ABI.
  • You are not actively abusing substances or in crisis and are committed to recovery.
  • You have housing and medical support in place.
