With a network of facilities in Tishomingo, Oklahoma—the historic capitol of the Chickasaw Nation—the CTHC offers residential treatment programs for both adults and adolescents which combine traditional therapy utilizing evidence-based methods and the 12-step philosophy.
Accommodations and Food
Accommodations for both the adult and the adolescent programs are arranged in facilities with dormitory style sleeping quarters and separate buildings for treatment.
The adolescent program has 24 beds, while the adult program has 20. All residents share a simply-furnished double-occupancy room with one other client. Residents also share bathrooms, laundry facilities, living rooms and outdoor space for recreation. Communal meals are served three times a day in a cafeteria setting with new menus every day. Food is traditional American-fare.
Treatment and Staff
Clients are initially evaluated to determine appropriate treatment and an individualized plan is devised. Treatment for both adult and adolescent programs are based on the 12-steps. Clients attend group therapy twice a day for three hours as well as an educational lecture of some kind with the adolescent program focuses on youth-oriented practices and prevention methods. Individual counseling is also incorporated with clients typically meeting with their therapist once or twice a week.
Staff utilize CBT methodology. Family therapy is also heavily integrated into the adolescent program with family members participating in both the educational and treatment process.
In addition to a solid substance abuse treatment program, the Tishomingo Health Center also offers a variety of services to clients and the community including mental health counseling, dental, emergency, immunization and wellness services. Additional mental and behavioral health services include suicide intervention, treatment for child and elder abuse, depression, stress, domestic abuse and sexual assault.

With a strong foundation in the 12-steps, members of the Chickasaw Nation seeking either adult or adolescent treatment for substance abuse are well-served. As a comprehensive behavioral health provider, Tishomingo Health Center is a solid resource for the community.
