Educational Events

The Center for Success and Independence hosts educational events to keep healthcare professionals, parents, and community members informed on topics related to teen substance abuse and mental health issues.

We believe ongoing education is critical to improving awareness and understanding of these issues, their causes, and the latest treatment options, so we can collectively help these teens reach their highest potential.

CE Credits

We are proud to be an approved Continuing Education (CE) provider, certified by the Texas Department of State Health Services to offer CE hTCSI Educational Eventours to:

Better than her dreams

Before The Center, I was a kid lost in a cold and dangerous world, with no hope, no direction -- only dreams of becoming something important. Now I’m a young lady whose reality is finally better than her dreams.
