Transitional Support Services (TSS)
High Point's Community Transitional Support Services (TSS) program is part of an extensive continuum of substance use disorder services, including residential rehabilitation services, ambulatory services, narcotic treatment, and other transitional care. The purpose of the program is to bridge the gap between detoxification and stepdown services to residential aftercare. This goal is accomplished by creating a safe, supportive, substance-free environment that enhances and promotes the participant's recovery while awaiting placement in residential or sober housing. Referrals are accepted from Department of Public Health funded detoxification programs and shelters located in Southeastern Massachusetts. Target populations include the homeless, those new to treatment, as well as those who have long-standing histories of substance use disorders and criminal justice involvement.
While in TSS, residents engage in the development of an Individual Service Plan that supports their overall health and well-being. Case management services are provided and include service planning, goal development and family unification.
Referrals will be facilitated for residents requiring physical and mental health care, assistance with legal issues, sober housing, residential treatment, and vocational and educational needs. Residents attend psycho-educational groups and lectures that focus on such topics like relapse prevention, relationships, HIV awareness, domestic violence, nutrition, self-help, men's and women's recovery issues, and other topics related to developing a lifestyle that is conducive to continued recovery. Residents also attend daily in-house commitment (AA/NA) groups.
