Palmer Philosophy

At Palmer’s Tulsa Women and Children’s Center (TWWC), chemically dependent pregnant women and mothers receive comprehensive residential substance abuse treatment in a family-friendly environment. Women 18 years of age and above are invited to bring children under the age of 12 to live with them during treatment. Clients receive parenting education as well as addiction treatment services while children and toddlers participate in on-site childcare programming.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

  • 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.

ABOUT PALMER’S TULSA WOMEN AND CHILDREN’S CENTER

Palmer’s Tulsa Women and Children’s Center (TWCC) in Tulsa, Okla. is a residential and outpatient facility specifically catering to women who have children or are pregnant, and are struggling with substance abuse disorders. TWCC allows women to bring their children (up to age 12) while they undergo treatment. Housed in a sprawling, freestanding facility located a few miles from downtown Tulsa, the state-funded rehab has been offering programs to women since 1989.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at TWCC is focused on helping families put the cycle of addiction behind them. Clients hoping to be admitted are assessed for eligibility, and then put on a waiting list with priority status given to women who are pregnant and/or have HIV or Hepatitis C as well as women with dependent children.

The residential program has a dual focus on substance abuse treatment and parenting skills. With their children safely cared for in the on-site child care center/school, the women participate in 35 hours per week of individualized addiction treatment including medical and psychiatric services, mental health therapy, trauma therapy, domestic violence counseling, and case management. Every week clients also receive seven hours of parenting instruction, four hours of process group, and are encouraged to participate in art therapy and group activities.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes registered nurses, physicians and a psychiatrist, as well as certified substance abuse counselors (CSAC), licensed professional counselors (LPC), licensed family and children therapists, certified case managers, and recreational therapists. The three individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date rated the staff's level of training and experience two perfect five-star ratings and a four-star rating.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

At the 52-bed facility, smoking is prohibited and no tobacco products of any kind are allowed on campus. Activities for clients are planned for weekends.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni reviews of TWCC are positive. The two alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date on overall treatment effectiveness gave Palmer a four- and five-star rating. Tracy, who chose the facility so her young son could stay with her, called the center “clean and safe,” and the counselors “excellent.” Her only complaint was that the bedrooms were small, the bathrooms shared, and the dining room noisy.

On Google, Palmer received a perfect five-star rating from one alum to date,[1] while on Facebook, 12 reviewers to date rated the facility an average 4.8 out of five stars.[2] Alumni were grateful for the program and staff. Alum Google user Kande wrote: "I kept coming back.I been with palmer a year. I am now in wings of freedom."

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

One loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date was extremely positive, rating the facility a perfect five stars in categories such as holistic treatment offerings, the staff’s level of support, pricing, and the level of family involvement. Loved one S.S. also made note of the fair price afforded by state funding.

FINANCING

Services are provided without regard to a woman’s ability to pay, and typically are provided at no charge.

That place needs to be close. They use the girls food stamps but feed them chips and sandwiches. They run off donation. The nurse are a joke. They don't know nursing. The administration is laughable. My family member counselor was d administrator. They never a session. Wonder how they charged for that? Please go somewhere else. This place is horrible.

I have been clean and sober for 5 years now. Could not have happened on my own. I am very thankful and grateful for every thing. My children are thriving. And we look back on the place and remember so many good times.

Only place where i could take young son with me. Overall a clean and safe environment. A chef comes in 5 days a week to prepare lunch/dinner. Excellent counselors. Rooms are small and you have to share a bathroom with 2 other rooms. So there could be as many as 10 people per bathroom. Lunch/Dinner time is extremely noisy while everyone is gathered in dining room waiting on food.
