Hmmm – – – how best to answer… In one form or another there have been rehabilation centers on Earth for Centuries. Any place where one can rest & recuperate from illness or accident or addiction or an affliction is a rehabilation center. Most rehabilation centers serve as a place where one learns skill for dealing with their disability whether it be a physical handicap, a perceived addiction or an accident.

Here are a few of the oldest rehab centers..

“”The Carroll Center was organized in 1936 as the Catholic Guild for All the Blind. It was the central office for the parish guilds in the Archdiocese of Boston. From the beginning, voluntary support was vital, especially from the women in the guilds who raised funds to help the blind. The Guild provided financial aid, clothing, organized reading circles, employment-seeking assistance, talking books, recreational activities, and transportation. In 1938, Father Thomas Carroll became assistant director.
Shown here is a picture of Cardinal Cushing playing ball with children at an annual picnic for blind parishioners. He served as chairman of the Board of Directors for twenty-five years
