TIES: Therapeutic Intervention, Education, and Skills
The Therapeutic Intervention, Education, and Skills (TIES) program has officially closed. It addressed the complex needs of children, from birth to age 17, who were at-risk of out-of-home placement due to parent/caretaker substance use. The Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services partnered with the Department of Children’s Services and Centerstone, a community behavioral health treatment center, to provide Intensive Family Preservation Services and Seeking Safety treatment for children and families affected by substance use and trauma.
Evaluation services were provided by Centerstone Research Institute. Services were available for families who lived in Bedford, Cannon, Coffee, Davidson, Marshall, Rutherford, and Warren counties. TIES services helped keep families together and children safe and healthy.
