Tib has been a professional in the addiction recovery field since 1986. Having worked as an inpatient and outpatient adult, adolescent aftercare, and family program counselor, Tib is well qualified to facilitate clinical evaluations as well as family and workplace interventions. His exposure to many uniquely experienced professionals over the course of his twenty-eight year career has afforded him the opportunity to now share these gifts with others. The St. Louis office is supported by an outstanding clinical team with eighty five years of front line patient experience. Overseeing the operation of two family programs, out-patient, IOP, aftercare, admissions at all levels of care including inpatient to Newport Beach, allows Tib the latitude of representing Northbound as a family recovery program. Tib attended the University of Nevada at Las Vegas and completed the Chemical Independence Certificate Program through the St. Louis Community College’s Meramec Campus. Ultimately Tib is responsible for the success of Northbound St. Louis. “But, only in theory, this operation is strictly a “we” deal. I am blessed beyond belief with extraordinary clinical talent and community support.” Northbound is truly a family recovery program.

Reviews at a Glance
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
- Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
