Substance Use Disorder

Services Provided

Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral Services (OSAR) - TTBH OSAR programming works to provide outreach, screening, assessment, and referral services at additional times and locations that maximize access to substance use disorder treatment, especially for DSHS-designated Priority Populations (i.e. drug courts, jails, probation and Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) offices, emergency rooms, health clinics, Regional Public Health Centers and/or local Federally Qualified Health Clinics (FQHC), among others).

Substance Use Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient - Available to adult and adolescent male and females.  Individuals eligible for services meet diagnostic criteria for substance use disorders, and do not require a more structured setting to maintain sobriety.  It enhances the quality of life by empowering individuals to achieve their highest possible potential for dignity, independence, and self-fulfillment.  

Detox and Aftercare Services - Services are available to adult and adolescent individuals.  Treatment is individualized according to the specific strengths, needs, abilities and preferences of each individual served.  Aftercare Services are designed to extend the gains made through inpatient detoxification by helping individuals engage in community recovery programs and mental health services.  Tropical Texas contracts with local facilities to provide supportive care through the recovery process for substance use disorders and mental health services.  

Federal Pretrial and Probation Aftercare - The Federal Pretrial Treatment Program works with adults who are awaiting trial on drug related charges.  Probation Aftercare works with adults who have been placed on probation for drug related charges.  Each consumer is assigned to the program by the court system and is assigned to a probation officer who works closely with Center staff and the individual.  The three-phase treatment system utilized focuses on the support and empowerment of consumers to lead a drug free lifestyle.  

Bureau of Prisons Aftercare - works with adults who have been paroled on drug related charges.  Each consumer is assigned to the program by a parole officer who works closely with Center staff and the individual.  The three-phase treatment system utilized focuses on the support and empowerment of consumers to lead a drug free lifestyle. 

Telemedicine/Telehealth Services

TTBH utilizes telemedicine and telehealth services to supplement on-site clinical care and to improve access to care.  The same standards of care and protocols will be observed in the delivery of care via telemedicine and telehealth as are observed in the assessment and treatment of clients on-site.   An explanation of telemedicine/telehealth services, equipment and any security, privacy or safety considerations will be provided and the client will be asked to sign a consent to telemedicine/telehealth services prior to use.  Clients who are not comfortable using telemedicine/telehealth services will be scheduled with a face to face provider at their request.  Telemedicine and telehealth services are offered during the same hours of operation as TTBH’s other services.
