Rocky Mountain MIRECC for Suicide Prevention
Substance Use and Traumatic Brain Injury Risk Reduction and Prevention
Updated: 29 June 2016
- This seven-minute program provides information regarding the impact of using drugs and alcohol after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The video guides the viewer through a discussion about how the brain works before and after a brain injury, and then demonstrates how drugs and alcohol can affect persons with a history of TBI using brain animations and short vignettes. This tool was designed to facilitate providers in engaging clients in a dialogue about substance use post-injury and was made possible by funding from the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program.
