The Transitional Care Clinic works on a foundation of evidence-based treatment. We believe in the importance of providing treatment that has been shown to be effective for each client’s specific concerns.
Clients who require long-term, intensive services are linked by our care coordination team to a professional provider within the community who can provide that care.
At the TCC, our goal is to support client and connect them to services that facilitate their recovery. We work to help clients stay out of the hospital by providing the following services:
Individual counseling helps clients build skills that empower them to recognize and manage their symptoms on their own, which decreases their need for services over time.
Couples & Family Therapy
These services help clients build stronger relationships, improve family dynamics, and provide a space to share experiences or concerns with partners or family members.

The TCC provides crisis support to clients through the Living Room, an area available without appointment to TCC and NOW clients. The Living Room is open Monday–Friday, 8 AM–4 PM. There, a counselor provides help to clients experiencing a mental health crisis, such as a panic attack, a significant increase in stress, worsening mental health symptoms, or the urge to do something that could have negative consequences, such as hurting oneself. The goal is to help clients use skills and resources to cope with a crisis and help them avoid hospitalization.
Relapse Prevention Workshops
One-time workshops are available by appointment to help clients dealing with substance use problems develop a long-term recovery plan. These sessions help clients use problem-solving skills to prevent relapse and maximize harm-reduction skills if relapse does occur.
