There is an increased incidence of acquired brain damage, with an especial impact in young individuals with ages ranging between 15 and 24 ages old. In order to achieve the best possible integration of affected persons, as pointed out by the WHO, it is necessary to implement specialized rehabilitation programs, that include professionals from different areas sharing their knowledge and objectives. Such transdisciplinar rehabilitation process will facilitate the physical, psychological and social adaptation to the highest possible level. The Social Services are one of the ways to reach this objective.
