Transitional Counseling Program (TCP)

Principal Investigator: Savu, Anna
Funder: St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund (CSF)
Official Title: Transitional Counseling Program (TCP)

TCP is a new program developed by the NCADA for adolescents living in St. Louis who have an identified issue with substance use. The primary goal of TCP is to bridge the gap between initial assessment and either admission to a substance abuse treatment program or problem resolution. NCADA counselors use several evidence-based methods to bolster motivation, help adolescents develop resiliency skills, and improve family relationships. The MIMH conducts the process and outcome evaluations, assists with developing outcome measures, creates opportunities for qualitative data collection (i.e. focus groups), and analyzes and reports on the secondary data. The evaluation will determine whether the program is increasing treatment participation, reducing youth substance use, enhancing their protective factors, and increasing knowledge about substance abuse among youth and caregivers.
