HOW WE CAN HELP

Transitional Community Treatment (TCT) is for unhoused youth and young adults to make a successful transition into stable living while receiving the care they need for substance use or mental health challenges with the assistance of Ryther partnerships.


Through exceptional staff, we successfully connect youth to the services they need, significantly increasing their potential to improve their outcomes. You can find Ryther clinician's at encampments,  in homes, under bridges, and where they are needed the most.

ABOUT OUR SERVICES

Ryther’s Transitional Community Treatment (TCT) program provides support to unhoused youth and young adults experiencing substance use disorders, mental health challenges, or involved in the juvenile court system by partnering with peer organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, YouthCare, and the King County Detention Center. 

Our team provides services in over a dozen locations, including drop-in centers and residential facilities.  In addition, Ryther provides mobile clinicians who are tasked with serving clients throughout King County. This includes hospitals, homes, community centers, drop-in centers, or any other space where we encounter youth in need.

 

Utilizing a strength-based approach to engage youth, Ryther staff provide prevention services and psycho-education, connecting these young adults to the services they need and, when appropriate, enrolling them in long-term services.
