Engagement Services

The Taking Initiative Center (TIC) is a drop-in center which provides a safe place for people who are trying to stop abusing substances or are in the early stages of recovery. Located on Whalley Avenue in New Haven, this inter-agency collaborative offers meals, access to shower and laundry facilities, meditation and recovery groups and assistance with or referral to employment services, education, social services and treatment. Participation at the TIC can be the first step on the tough road to recovery.
