About TJI

TJI is an international training, consulting and technical assistance services organization.  We provide innovative, disruptive education, consultation and technical assistance to remove barriers within organizations that provide treatment services.

The explosive growth of persons appearing with Substance use and Co-Occurring disorders demand appropriate problem severity assessment and level of care determination, Trauma Sensitive and Culturally Humble Care practice and effective engagement and retention strategies.  The reality of COVID-19 not only negatively impacted our clients and their families but left the treatment field in desperate need of well-trained professionals to address issues of the day.

Our collective experience involves many well-known transformation efforts that support wholistic services rendering that includes, but not limited to: training teams on the use of the ASAM criteria (*3rd and 4th editions) specialized training with justice involved persons and professionals that includes corrections, jails, drug and other problem solving court, Deflection and Pre Arrest Diversion, community corrections, the implementation of the modified Therapeutic Community model in jails and prisons throughout North America, preparation for new counselors seeking certification, Community Healing Circles, Organizational Leadership and Collaborative Problem Solving and finally employing community based treatment models that apply comprehensive case management, utilizes RNR assessment findings, employs effective recovery interventions, supportive housing, medical/mental health services and work readiness access to name a few.
We train substance use/mental health treatment professionals, counselor trainees and Peer Support Specialist, Psychologists and Addiction Medical professionals, Wardens and correctional staff, Judges and drug/problem solving court teams, probation/parole and police officers, Community Leaders and members of the Faith community.  We believe our trainings will help professionals better respond to the needs and issues of those who suffer from SUD/Co-Occurring disorders by utilizing evidence-based practice methodologies that create better treatment outcomes, decreased recidivism rates, safer facilities and communities, and healthier families.
