Models and Programs of the Center for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
The Center for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (CNR) is a department of Community Hospitals Indianapolis. It was founded in 1983, and has enjoyed a leadership role in the field of postacute brain injury rehabilitation. It was developed at a time when patients with acquired brain injury received inpatient rehabilitation for sometimes 6 to 12 months, but thereafter were left without resources to facilitate reintegration into their relationships, communities, or place of employment. The program was developed with many of the program structures and characteristics of a holistic neuropsychological rehabilitation program described in Chapter 9, this volume. Several developmental concepts were central to our program and merit further elaboration.
