Center for Therapeutic Change


Located in Arlington, Texas, Center for Therapeutic Change offers outpatient, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and aftercare programs for people struggling with substance abuse and/or co-occurring disorders. Center for Therapeutic Change also operates treatment centers in East Fort Worth and West Fort Worth.


According to the facility’s website, the intensive outpatient program is designed for clients who need individualized treatment, though less restrictive care than residential treatment. In addition, IOP may be appropriate for individuals looking to continue treatment after leaving a residential facility. Clients in this program meet three or four days a week, and for more than 10 hours a week.

The treatment center offers day, night, and weekend programming for both the intensive outpatient program and regular outpatient program. Treatment includes interventions, psychiatric and medical care coordination, an introduction to 12-step fellowship, gender-specific programming, and trauma support**.

Services also include individual, group, family, and couples therapy, and co-occurring disorder treatment. The treatment center offers group therapy specializing in domestic violence, anger management, theft intervention, and addiction issues.

The center’s outpatient treatment is designed for people who are in the early stages of substance abuse. The program provides individuals with the fundamentals of treatment and addresses relapse prevention needs. Traditional outpatient program may also be used as a step-down phase. Individuals in this program are in treatment for three to nine hours a week.

The Transitional Treatment Program is designed for people struggling with the challenges of transitioning from residential treatment to a newly sober lifestyle. Services in this program include discharge collaboration, aftercare programs, relapse prevention programs, and life skills training.

The treatment center has a Customized Criminal Justice Program, which offers customized programming for people involved in the criminal justice system. These programs use cognitive behavioral therapy and therapeutic interventions to reduce recidivism.

The center’s DWI Basic Education Program, DWI Repeat Offender Program, and Drug Offender Education Program are specialized programs licensed by the Texas Department of State Health and Human Services.


The Center for Therapeutic Change’s website notes the treatment team includes doctorate, masters, and other licensed level professional counseling staff.

Tailored program which is been extremely effective in a short period of time with love. Not only dropping defenses but for the first time in 20 years acknowledging there's an issue With substance abuse. Counsellors are amazing and helping identify what tools you need and provide continuing support in a positive way so there is continual success. The family as a whole has benefited with new life management skills that we didn't realize we needed at the time. I highly recommend this organization. Thank you for all of your support and education .
