Time Out Counseling Services Mission

Time Out Counseling Services, Inc. • 8242 East Twelve Mile Road • Warren, MI. USA 48093 • Phone: 586.574.2601 • Fax: 586.574.2602

Our mission is to deliver quality outpatient prevention, psychoeducation and treatment services to individuals with substance abuse and anger management issues who have come in contact with the legal system. Our belief is that court-mandated clients represent the largest interface between substance abusers and their opportunity for healthy change. We further believe that this population is under-served due to the adversarial relationship that exists between the traditional counseling culture and court systems. We believe that directly confronting denial, holding clients accountable, and utilizing the advantages gained through the behavioral compliance provided by the court system offers a unique opportunity for the client, as well as the counseling community and the courts.

We have been honored to be a part of the strengthening relationship between the counseling community and the courts, and have been privileged to be involved in significant advancements in our profession such as the rise of Drug Treatment Courts and Sobriety Courts. We believe more strongly than ever that collaboration between the counseling community and the court systems is producing unprecedented results for our clients, our profession, the courts, and the communities we serve.
