Transforming, Educating, and Empowering Children and Humanity (T.E.E.C.H) was founded in 2002 and we are a holistic 501c3 not-for-profit organization. We are a substance use prevention and recovery (SUPR) provider, Far Southside Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC), Recovery Community Organization (RCO), and member of the United Mental Health and Recovery Coalition (RCO). We provide peer-driven and peer-led recovery support services (RSS) to individuals who are seeking assistance with substance use and mental health. We aim to make a difference in people's lives by increasing public awareness of substance use and mental health.
We are committed to assisting individuals to walk through many pathways by using their voices to address stigmas attached to addiction. T.E.E.C.H believes long-term recovery from substance use disorders is dependent upon the delivery of services that are not only responsive to an individual's use of alcohol and other substances but also co-occurring, trauma effects, mental health issues, physical health problems, and ongoing recovery-related concerns.
T.E.E.C.H offers holistic services that strive to assist individuals in maintaining their recovery. We provide empathy to build congruence with the individuals that we serve. Our only requirement is a desire to make a change.
