In addition to the main office in Westborough, BIA-MA has two regional offices, one in E. Wareham and another in Pittsfield. These regional offices provide information, resources, support and informal counseling to individuals with brain injuries, families and professionals.
The Regional Offices also host numerous support groups that provide survivors, family members and caregivers a fun and caring atmosphere where they find opportunities to socialize and make new friends with others who have shared similar experiences.
