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.

Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Palmer’s Tulsa Women and Children’s Center (TWCC) in Tulsa, Okla. is a residential and outpatient facility that specifically caters to women who have children or are pregnant, and are struggling with substance abuse disorders. TWCC is a unique facility in that 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 for more than 25 years. Detox services are not available on-site.


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 a 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.


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. Out of the three reviews received by Rehabs.com to date, the staff received perfect five out of five ratings on two, and a four-star rating on the other.


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


Alumni reviews of TWCC are positive, with the facility receiving an average overall score of 4.5 out of five based on two alumni surveys received by Rehabs.com to date. 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 that the bedrooms were small, the bathrooms shared, and the dining room noisy.

Another anonymous alum gave a glowing review of the facility to go along with a five out of five overall score, writing: “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.”


Responses from loved ones of alumni are limited. The one survey received by Rehabs.com from S.L.S., the family member of an alum, is extremely positive, giving the facility five out of five scores in categories such as accommodations and amenities, meals and nutrition, holistic offerings, the staff’s level of support, pricing, and the level of family involvement, as well as a perfect five-star rating for the overall score. S.L.S. also made note of the fair price afforded by state funding.


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

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.
