Our Services

Treatment may include:

Addiction education, legal counseling, detoxification, family and individual counseling, vocational training, parenting skills, group exercises and interaction, recreation therapy and relapse prevention training. Many aspects of treatment can be individually tailored to meet the specific needs of individual patients and family members. During episodes of stress or relapse a more focused approach may be required. Our Professional Counselors are ready to help.

TLC’s Residential Treatment Program is strongly recommended for people who would continue to abuse substances if they remained in their current living situation. The usual indicators for Residential Living Programs are signs or evidence that someone’s health, relationships or work are being damaged by alcohol or drug use. Many drinkers or drug users, if left alone, will continue to drink or use. Checking into a Residential Living Program helps you break the cycle of drinking or using on a daily basis. Most of the participants at the facility need more support and structure because they are just not stable enough to manage their recovery on their own.

TLC’s successful approach is based on directly learning the skills of planned abstinence in a safe environment. We work with each client independently to develop a program to help him or her understand the dynamics of their abuse and to give them the necessary tools/support for sustained abstinence.

Residential Treatment

TLC’s unique holistic, systematic approach addresses the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of addiction, and includes other family members and significant others in the process. The clients family is invited to participate in the treatment to develop an understanding of the disease, to become educated in the terms used in recovery, and most importantly, to learn their role in the addiction. Understanding and developing positive relationship dynamics is key to the healing process. Working together insures much greater recovery success.

In TLC’s Residential Treatment Programs our clients experience a clean, safe, relaxed homey environment, including delicious food prepared on site! (Not a sterile institutional facility.) Fun recreational activities are part of the support and healing process in our group counseling programs. Come stay with us and let us help you on your path to recovery.

Programs vary from 3-300+ days depending on the needs and progress of the client.

T​LC’s Outpatient Treatment Program is for the individual who is just starting to see the signs of substance abuse patterns in their life and feel they can still function in the world while attending treatment three to five days a week.
Most people prefer outpatient programs as it allows them to remain in their current living and working situations; to sleep in their own bed and continue with their normal activities. Most people feel if they receive support in an outpatient program several days a week, they can regain control again.

TLC’s Outpatient Treatment Program is very successful for people whom alcohol or drugs are just starting to have a detrimental affect but have not yet taken complete control in their lives. These individuals learn tools to control urges and prevent relapse while continuing to work or go to school.


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.
    We integrate well-known and successful recovery programs such as Alcoholic’s Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Alanon (to help the families of addicts).

    These meetings are scheduled at various intervals throughout the week in the evenings.

    These programs are social models developed to supplement existing programs by offering mentorship, fellowship and peer support.
