Transitional Counseling Program

Click to view the TCP Brochure

NCADA’s Transitional Counseling Program (TCP) offers comprehensive adolescent evaluations and counseling for young people up to age 19 and their families. The TCP provides a supportive environment that enhances motivation to change, helps explore the consequences of substance use, and works to develop healthier alternatives. If treatment for chemical dependence is necessary, NCADA will make an appropriate referral and provide ongoing support until the desired treatment is available.

As part of the TCP, teens will find educational assistance from mentors and tutors in the Lounge.  Caregivers will find skilled counselors that promote healthy family relationships. Community partners such as schools and treatment providers will find a new ally in their efforts to help young people.

Thanks to generous funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health and the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund, there is no charge for NCADA’s Transitional Counseling Program.

Successes of TCP include:

  • Nearly 200 kids have been a part of the TCP in the last year and a half.
  • 75% of teens in the program maintain complete sobriety during their participation; six months after exiting the program, nearly 65% were still maintaining sobriety.
  • 6 months after exiting the program, seven out of ten teens felt that they were able to resist pressure to use substances.
  • The majority of kids in the program saw improved relationships with their parents or caregivers.
