Thread: Rehablilitation Centers other than Craig Hospital.

  1. #1

    Rehablilitation Centers other than Craig Hospital.

    I am looking for a rehabilitation center that is located somewhere it never snows so that I can learn to drive. I am hoping to find one in Arizona, because I will be moving there soon anyway. I would love to go to Craig, but by the time I get it will most likely be winter, and I refuse to learn how to drive in the snow. So I am looking for some help in finding somewhere I can become totally independent all at once with no snow!!!! Can anyone help me??? If you can, please email me at or here to let me know.

    Snow is quite rare in Seattle. I learned to drive at the UW last November and have yet to encounter any snow. The UW has a great reputation for rehab too.

    We've had one storm this year but it melted quickly. However, I grew up in Minnesota and also worked at a ski resort in Utah so I am not worried about driving in snow.

    Good luck in making your choice.

    Thank you for all of your advice. I will take it under considerable attention while deciding which place will be the best fit for me!!!!

    It only snows in Houston every 10-12 years -- you could try TIRR. My husband did his rehab there and while I had some complaints about the doctors AFTER he left, the rehab he had was good.

    RIC in Chicago is great. They can get you through the driving program in four days.

    FYI it does snow in AZ...

    Since being able to drive is a big part of life, I moved the thread. I hope it gets an increase in replies.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    why do you have to go so far away to learn to drive?

    I agree with Liz, but you're only about 500 miles from Sheperd in GA and Kessler in NJ. Atlanta gets a few flakes per winter and West Orange can get a lot more than that. You really don't need a rehabilitation institute to learn how to use hand controls - especially if you drove before the sci.
    Good luck,
