History & Experience

America’s Largest and Most Experienced Provider

NeuroRestorative’s roots date back to 1977, the year the renowned Center for Comprehensive Services (CCS) was founded in Carbondale, Illinois. In 1998 CCS joined The MENTOR Network, a national network of local health and human services providers offering an array of quality, community-based services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain and spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and illnesses; to youth with emotional, behavioral and medically complex challenges, as well as their families; and to elders in need of support. Years later, The Network brought CCS and its growing array of brain injury rehabilitation services together under the MENTOR ABI name.

MENTOR ABI quickly became a recognized provider in the field of community-based brain injury rehabilitation and continued to build an array of individualized programs through strategic growth and acquisition. Each new program or acquisition enabled MENTOR ABI to expand its geographic footprint, add new talent and clinical expertise, and consistently improve its overall level of care and diversity of service offerings to support individuals with brain injury in communities close to home.

In 2010, the organizations which previously made up MENTOR ABI, including the Center for Comprehensive Services (CCS), Lakeview Healthcare Systems, and the NeuroRestorative legacy programs in AR, LA, TX and OK were unified under the NeuroRestorative name.

Today, NeuroRestorative is America’s largest and most experienced provider of post-acute rehabilitation services for people of all ages with brain and spinal cord injuries and other neurological challenges. We help people who have experienced injuries regain a productive life and a future full of promise using an individualized service approach that has been effective for nearly forty years.
