The Marine and Sailor Concussion Recovery Center (MSCRC) at Camp Lejeune’s TBI treatment program for Marines and Sailors offers a multidisciplinary approach to address the physical, cognitive, and emotional effects of TBI. During this sixteen-week program, participants are provided neurological services, speech-language therapy, occupational and vestibular therapies, psychological and neuro-psychological support as well as nurse case management.
