Brain Injury Treatment Programs for Military Service Members

Mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can cause a variety of symptoms, including headaches and issues with balance, poor sleep, vision, memory, and problem-solving, among others. But, like every SHARE Military Initiative client, every brain injury is unique. With that in mind, SHARE can customize an evaluation and treatment plan based on a client’s personal needs.

Clients living in these states are able to participate in a three-day, in-person evaluation and then continue the rest of their care virtually from home. If medically necessary, additional in-person visits can be scheduled.

Comprehensive Day Program

  • Those living in states where we are not licensed may be able to participate in person, full time at our treatment facility in Atlanta. Those participating in full-day program treatment must adhere to our COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Outpatient Program

  • We can provide outpatient services virtually or in person for clients in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. We do not provide housing, lunches, or transportation to those participating in our outpatient services.
