    Hi, My Husband had a TBI on Nov 5, 2016 when he was kicked in the face by a horse. We live in Cliff, NM near Silver City. Are there any support groups in our area. I think it would really help us.
    Please email me
    Thank You,

    Please consider starting a support group in Silver City, NM. A friend of mine recently relocated there and is in need of support.

    Hello.
    I am a therapist treating an individual with TBI. We are looking for a substance abuse group specifically for individuals with brain injury. The client is located in Albuquerque.

  14. Mark Pedrotty 6 months ago June 9, 2018

    Hi Kayla,
    Each of the support groups have their own character. You might consider visiting each of them at your leisure to see which of them, might be all of them, fit you best. I look forward to meeting you at one of our activities.
    All the best,
    Mark Pedrotty, President BIANM

    Hi Sharon,
    I’m unaware of such a group. Please let me know if you find one. Margot Feldvebel, LCSW is trained to work with a person living with a brain injury as well as a substance use issue if you think she might be of help. There is also a free training for therapists to work with the brain injury and substance abuse if you are interested. You can call me at 272 5218 or go to Project ECHO at UNM and search for Integrative Cognitive Rehabilitation TeleECHO for more information. Good luck!
