They help you from the day you enter into the rehabilitation program, that’s a process that goes on, and on and on until your wheels are out the door. It’s a social worker learning about your community if we don’t know about your community, the particulars—are there any paved roads near your house? Can you get on a sidewalk and go downtown? How near are you to services? Do you have a school system that can pick you up if you have to go to school?
