I had good success dealing with a problem like this by temporarily changing mouthpeices. I went to a slightly smaller sharper rim than what I was accustomed to. This seemed to help the responsiveness on slurs and eliminate the need for the 'tongue crutch'. Once the habit was broken, I returned to my original mouthpeice. I think the psychology of thinking the mouthpeice 'helped' was more valuable than the physiology but it worked.
