As a new client, you will participate in an assessment session that focuses on gathering information about your specific circumstances. Providing input on your preferences, history, relationships and current needs will assist your counselor in working with you to develop goals that are meaningful to you as an individual. Your counselor will give you expert feedback on how you can best meet your goals based on your needs.

Outpatient Services

All of TCN's outpatient services are designed to fit your personal needs. Through the use of group counseling, individual counseling, and case management services we will work with you to create goals and tailor a program that best suits you.  

Level Of care

Once an assessment is completed, keeping your goals in mind, your counselor will determine the level of care you need to achieve those goals.
