TCSI: Healing Lives, Building Futures

The Center for Success and Independence (TCSI) is an adolescent residential and intensive outpatient treatment center providing evidence-based therapy for teens with substance abuse and mental health issues.

In times of crisis and challenge, we give teens and their families a place to turn to for help, putting them on the road to recovery.


About The Center for Success and Independence

The Center for Success and Independence (TCSI) provides long-term residential treatment and intensive outpatient services to adolescents age 12 to 17 who are suffering from substance abuse, other addictive disorders, emotional distress, behavioral health issues, suicidal ideation, and trauma, such as abuse, neglect and abandonment.

TCSI specializes in the treatment of teens with dual diagnoses and the implementation of our Dialectical Behavior Therapy program, designed specifically with adolescents in mind. We provide psychiatric and medical services through a staff that includes a board-certified psychiatrist, a licensed psychologist, licensed social workers and therapists, and a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

Our comprehensive approach to treatment has enabled us to reach teens that others have been unable to help or manage, making the Center a sought-after resource for parents and agencies desperately trying to help their teens.

In short, we provide hope to teens and their families.

Full of hope and peace

When we brought our son to The Center our home was a place of chaos, anxiety and stress. Through the incredible work by the staff at The Center -- we’re now seeing our son at his best. Not only is he clean and sober, but he’s full of hope and peace. The Center not only gave us our son back -- but it also helped to make our family whole again. We owe a debt of gratitude for this second chance.
