Highly Specialized Care for “Invisible Wounds”

Traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress have affected nearly one out of every three military personnel deployed to war zones since 2001. An estimated 30% of our nation’s first responders also experience symptoms of depression and post-traumatic stress.

Though labeled “invisible wounds,” these changes in psychological health manifest in a variety of devastating ways including depression, anxiety, suicide, and substance abuse—impacting not just veterans and first responders themselves, but also their loved ones.

Jefferson’s MossRehab Institute for Brain Health (MRIBH) is dedicated to evaluating and treating persistent symptoms associated with post-concussive and post-traumatic stress disorder, providing leading-edge, multidisciplinary care for veterans and first responders experiencing mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injuries or concussions, and addressing brain health issues associated with head trauma.

“The goals of the program are to take care of veterans and first responders, improve symptoms, and improve quality of life and function,” says MRIBH clinical director and physician Dr. Yevgeniya Segeryenko. “There are no out-of-pocket costs for our patients. We assist with food costs, and patients are stay in apartments next door while receiving treatment.”

The interdisciplinary, rehabilitation-focused program includes a one-week evaluation ahead of a three-week intensive outpatient program led by an experienced clinical team and featuring physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, behavioral health, neuropsychology, art therapy, horticulture therapy, mindfulness and yoga.

“We’ve seen amazing results and symptom improvement,” shares Dr. Segeryenko. “People have had an overwhelmingly positive response.  Almost every patient we’ve seen will say, ‘Thank you. This is the only time I’ve been listened to and that I’ve sat with a team that took so much time with me, really got to know me, and understand me.’ We’re able to make someone’s life better, and that’s amazing.”
