TLC's program is about recovery.
That's why you won't see pictures on these pages of smiling, healthy-looking residents who have all their teeth - frolicking on the beach hand in hand as if they're so delighted with their recovery they can hardly restrain themselves.
We don't offer five-star accommodations or world-class chefs. While there's nothing wrong with these amenities, that's not what TLC's about.
Most programs offering luxury amenities are operated by large for-profit corporations whose first question is about your insurance coverage. And when it runs out you're out the door until you get a new policy or win the lottery.
TLC was started and is peer-run by addicts who know what you're going through because they've been there. They know that the addict's problem isn't lack of silk sheets, lovely spas, luxury housing, or horse whispering.
At TLC we deal with gut-level recovery. Our treatment clinic is staffed with licensed behavioral health professionals who get to know their clients. And many of our staff members are themselves in recovery.
TLC offers a range of services to support recovery.
Among these are 850 residential beds, a State licensed treatment program, recovery housing for individuals who have finished the program.
We also offer a wide range of educational opportunities.
These include on-the-job training under the supervision of our State licensed contractors in such trades as air conditioning and refrigeration, roofing and remodeling, painting, sheetrock, and more.
Clients also may volunteer in other areas of TLC. These include telemarketing, landscaping, clerical and accounting services, convenience stores, the auto shop, and more.
