Inpatient Rehab

Call 770-219-3835 to make a referral today!

Our Goal

The goal of The Rehabilitation Institute's Inpatient Rehabilitation Program is to help the people we serve become as independent as possible for a safe and successful return to home.

Each patient's program is highly individualized and dependent upon each person’s needs.  We encourage family members or any other member of the patient’s support system to be actively involved in the patient’s care and to attend therapy sessions whenever possible, so they may reinforce new techniques being taught and encourage their loved one.  Research has found a correlation between family involvement and the rate in which patients return home.

Our Outcomes

Our outcomes are measured and compared to regional and national data to ensure we maintain state-of-the-art treatment.  Click the links below for more detailed information about our outcomes and the people we serve:
