Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What is your treatment philosophy?
Answer: We believe that treatment works best when our clients choose their treatment goals. This is called client-directed therapy. There are many pathways to recovery from alcohol and drug abuse/dependency, and different levels of severity, length of problem and capacity to change. We value honesty, open-mindedness and willingness and use a variety of proven techniques to help each client achieve their treatment goals.

Question: Are you a 12-step program?
Answer: The Twelve Step philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous has helped millions of people achieve lasting recovery from addiction. These groups are entirely independent and not affiliated with ANY treatment center or program. Some of our clients are introduced to AA and NA during treatment, may work the steps as part of their treatment, and usually become active in AA or NA following treatment. However, we do not require our clients to adopt a particular philosophy. We help our clients find a recovery support network that works for them.

Question: What do I need to do to get into treatment?
Answer: You need to call TCI at 877-785-0111 and schedule an initial assessment or enrollment/intake. The purpose of the assessment is to determine what level of services you need. But if your assessment has already been completed, you simply need to schedule an enrollment/intake appointment.

Question: How much does it cost?
Answer: The cost of treatment depends on the level of care and the length of service.

Question: Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment?
Answer: TCI does not accept insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, but we can work with clients in obtaining reimbursement.

Question: How do I make payment arrangements on my account?
Answer: Billing inquiries and payment arrangements can be made by phone. Please contact 877-785-0111.

Question: How long is treatment?
Answer: Treatment length is based on DASA standards and client needs.

Question: What about medication during treatment?
Answer: We DO expect all clients to abstain from the use of unapproved medication, illegal drugs or alcohol during treatment.
