MS Achievement Center


Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with multiple sclerosis for some time, the MS Achievement Center can help you take control of your health and achieve your wellness goals. Our programming features educational and physical activities that complement the medical management of your condition.

Upon admittance to the program, each person's specific needs are identified by MS Achievement Center staff and progress is monitored on an ongoing basis. Three days a week, participants attend various activities and programs designed to maximize different aspects of their well-being, including:

Physical Wellness

Customized fitness programs with our expert staff help members improve or maintain functional abilities and mobility.

Emotional Wellness

Through support groups and emotional health interventions, members learn to reduce stress and improve their emotional status.

Cognitive Wellness

Members participate in recreational activities designed to enhance mental acuity.

Health Education

Experts share information about disease management, symptom management, nutrition and general health practices to help members make optimal lifestyle and health decisions in conjunction with their personal physicians.

The MS Achievement Center operates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Core activities run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. However, doors open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 4:30 p.m., allowing individuals to arrive early or stay late for elective activities.

Program Requirements

The MS Achievement Center is open to anyone who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. For admittance into the program, participants must:

  • Be able to attend a five-hour block of activities one day per week
  • Make arrangements for transportation to and from the Center

Individuals can self-refer. MS Achievement Center staff will work with the participant's physician to keep them apprised of progress toward specific goals. Primary care physicians or other specialists can also refer.
