TTI offers a variety of educational, therapeutic and skills groups at each of our locations.  Groups are facilitated by both clinical staff and certified peer support specialists. 

TTI continues to adapt to our ever changing times which also includes how we offer groups.  Some groups meet in person, (at times, outside weather permitting) utilizing creativity, social distancing and safety precautions.  Others meet via telehealth platforms (zoom), teleconference and/or a combination of each.  We are here to continue supporting you!
