Abstract:
Study examining the effects of pre-injury history of arrest or history of substance abuse on neurobehavioral functioning after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Participants were 211 individuals with TBI who were seen for a follow-up neurobehavioral evaluation. Results indicate that participants with and without a history of pre-injury arrest differed significantly in demographic and injury characteristics. This document is included in NCDDR's Guide to Substance Abuse and Disability Resources Produced by NIDRR Grantees, 2nd edition, number D.42, and in NCDDR's Guide to Traumatic Brain Injury Resources Produced by NIDRR Grantees, number C.33.
