Tim Strickland, LPC, CPCS, MAC, SAP
My name is Tim Strickland. I grew up in Glennville, Georgia and now reside in Pembroke, Georgia. I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Masters Degree in Education Counseling in 1998 and have worked in the field of counseling for over fifteen years. I have extensive experience working with both adolescents and adults with mental health and substance abuse issues. I am a Georgia Licensed Professional Counselor. I have Certifications in Relapse Prevention, Clinical Supervision, Anger Management, and I am a Georgia approved Clinical Evaluator and Treatment Provider for the DUI Intervention Program. In this program I assist individuals in meeting requirements to get their driver licenses reinstated after multiple DUI's on their record. Also, I am certified by the Federal Department of Transportation to provide Substance Abuse Services to employees that are in DOT Safety Sensitive Positions who may have tested positive for alcohol/drugs. As a Substance Abuse Professional, I serve as the initial point of contact to establish parameters of change necessary for an individual to safely return to duty via initial assessment and follow up sessions that are required by employers and the Federal government. In 2013, I was fortunate to be honored as Georgia's Licensed Professional Counselor Associations's Counselor of the Year for the development and oversight of a Long Term Residential Treatment facility and extensive work done with an Outpatient population to bring about positive changes in men and women who suffer from addiction in the Bulloch County area as a Treatment Provider for Bulloch Recovery Resources. I have brought my energy, insight, and professionalism to the forefront and established Creative Counseling Solutions, LLC.
"We have the tools to meet all your RECOVERY needs", is not just a slogan that is catchy and pertinent to counseling. Literally, Creative Counseling Solutions, LLC can assist individuals with a multitude of needs in almost every aspect of the levels of care outlined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine, at an affordable cost!! Whether it is to meet the conditions of a probated sentence, get driver licenses reinstated, or to profoundly change the direction of someone's life who has found themselves desperate for change in either in the Mental Health or Substance Abuse arena, we have a plan for you! I purposefully set the private fees for services to be in line with what most people would pay for a co-pay or deductible if they were insured AND have a sliding fee scale to assist those who are struggling financially. If it's time to steer your car in another direction, let us help with road maps of strategies that have been proven with our Evidenced-Based curriculum and years of experience on the highways of life offered through our counseling services.
In addition to owning and operating the Outpatient Clinic of Creative Counseling Solutions, LLC, I am the co-owner and Clinical Director of Damascus, LLC. It is a Level IIa (ASAM III.1) residential program for men who are suffering from alcohol/drug addiction. Also, I am the Clinical Director of The WISE Place, a female residence that encompasses the 12 steps of recovery from a Faith-Based initiative, whereby women are exposed to Celebrate Recovery and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings along with Cognitive-Behavioral curriculum to advance their understanding of the disease of addiction. Damascus is a Georgia Probation and Parole THOR approved facility and we are a member of the Georgia Association of Recovery Residences. The men and women are afforded an opportunity to benefit from a structured program with a high degree of accountability in a safe environment to learn new behaviors and establish more healthy attitudes about life choices that lead to better coping strategies to cope with life issues without the use of chemicals. Each resident is given the opportunity to get individual and group counseling, peer support groups, and help in establishing full time employment and support in transitioning into a recovery lifestyle beyond our care. After care counseling is offered, as well.
