Support Group Meetings Aid in Recovery
Methodist Rehabilitation Center encourages patients and their families to participate in support groups that focus on their illness or injury. Support from others in similar situations greatly benefits patients recovering from neurological or orthopedic diseases or disorders. These groups frequently meet at our main campus in Jackson or at our East Campus in Flowood.
