Thayer Transitional Support Service (TSS) program is a step-down program that provides inpatient substance abuse treatment and transitional support. The TSS program has expertise in providing stabilization services that act upon clients’ motivation for change and enable clients to consolidate and build upon the gains they have already made towards their recovery. The program is staffed 24 hours a day; case managers and nursing on staff are available to assist with any client’s physical or practical needs.
The TSS program’s main goal is to prepare clients to transition into the community and connect them with appropriate community resources so that they will be in the best position to remain sober once discharged. In order to achieve this goal, the TSS program provides all clients with continued substance abuse treatment in a safe environment and its intensive psycho-educational groups and case management services provide clients with the tools they need to stay sober in the community.
In addition, TSS uses an individualized approach to treatment in which all clients have their own personalized treatment and recovery aftercare plan based on their needs. The treatment and aftercare plan integrates components of the AA/NA social model, Motivational Interviewing, Life Skills Development, and Substance Abuse Psycho-education, as well as Health and Wellness initiatives.
