Additionally, outpatient programs (like community living programs) facilitate learning what the REAL triggers are because most often, using alcohol or drugs is NOT the problem; it is a symptom of the problem. At TLC, our job is to stop the symptoms by finding the underlying issues and assist our clients in growing through their challenges. This comprehensive approach is one of the reasons our success rate is so high!
Counseling is provided in a structured environment for the client and their support system (family, spouse, friends, etc.). Working together insures much greater recovery success. Programs vary in frequency and duration depending on the needs and progress of the client.
Most programs are 6 to 16 weeks in length and are often recommended as a supplement to the successful completion of a Residential Living treatment program.
