Who Benefits From Rehabilitation?

‚ÄčRehabilitation practitioners work with many populations such as those with disabilities involving work related injuries, automobile accidents, hearing impairments, visual disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse, physical disability, mental retardation, and psychiatric disabilities. They may also provide general and specialized counseling to the non-disabled population as professional counselors in those states that regulate counselors.

State rehabilitation agencies follow the same general procedures for providing services; thus, a rehabilitation counselor is able to move to various geographical locations throughout the country with little difficulty finding employment.

Industrially injured workers may also receive services through private rehabilitation companies and employer's own in-house disability management programs.
