How do I get started adapting my car for hand controls?

So, I crashed my car yesterday(just me, into a parking garage barrier, no injuries thankfully), and realize that I can no longer drive. Well, using my feet at least. Neuropathy has made it so I can't reliably find the brake, so I won't drive.
But I know that wheelchair bound people drive and use hand controls, so maybe that will work for me as well, but I know nothing about it. Can my Honda Element be adapted or are certain cars better for this than others? Are there any registration issues (I live in MA)? If anyone has done it, is it difficult to learn? Any other things I should know about it? I hate the thought of losing my ability to drive, so I appreciate any and all help you all can give.
