We have Behavioral Health Care Accreditation from The Joint Commission and our programs are accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. We are certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) as a Comprehensive Community Addiction Recovery Center (CCARC). We are the largest CCARC in the state and the only CCARC that provides the full continuum of services, onsite. Bryce House, our residential living facility for homeless veterans in recovery is accredited by the Veterans Administration.
We believe in two foundational principles:
Given these principles, we believe:
1985 – 12 & 12, Inc. Transition House, Inc. was founded in 1985 as a halfway house for alcoholic men. It was located at 12 East 12th Street in downtown Tulsa.
1989 – 12 & 12, Inc. Transition House became a Tulsa Area United Way partner agency.
1990 – Residential services for chemically dependent women began in May 1990.
1992 – Awarded a contract by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) to establish a 10-bed detox and 20-bed residential treatment program. Also, the city’s largest outpatient program for women was merged into it.
1993 – Purchased the former Sheraton Skyline Hotel at 6333 East Skelly Drive. Most of its programs were moved into the new facility in February 1994.
1994 – 12 & 12, Inc. was awarded “The Outstanding Treatment Program” for the State of Oklahoma by the Chemical Addiction Programs Directors Association.
1996 – Became accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for Alcohol and other Drug Programs: Detoxification, Residential Treatment and Outpatient Services.
2006 – Opened Bryce House at 1214 S. Baltimore Ave. on December 12, 2006. Funded by the Veterans Administration, it is a transitional living program designed specifically for homeless veterans in recovery.
2013 – Became an accredited Comprehensive Community Addiction Recovery Center (CCARC). It’s the only CCARC in Oklahoma that provides the full continuum of services, on site.
2013 – 12 & 12, Inc. was awarded the BEST Residential AOD Addiction Treatment Center in Oklahoma by consumers through a survey sponsored by the Oklahoma Citizen Advocates for Recovery and Treatment Association (OCARTA).
2014 – Coalition of Advocates presented 12 & 12, Inc. with the Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Provider Advocacy Award.
2016 – With support from The William K. Warren Foundation, 12 & 12, Inc. implemented a new treatment option, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP). This new treatment tool is based on research evidence, which shows many benefits from meditation in treating addiction disorders by helping clients learn to pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the choices before them in each moment. Mindfulness Meditation thus helps clients learn to respond in ways that serve them well, rather than in detrimental ways. Their increased self-awareness helps clients identify healthy approaches to dealing with personal stress and relapse triggers.
2016 – 12 & 12, Inc. started partnering with OSU’s Department of Psychiatry in a strategic alliance to provide better client outcomes through integrated treatment. This partnership provides its Medical Directorship. The Medical Directorship provides its ability to diagnosis, prescribe and dispense medications, provide RN and LPN licensures supervision within the treatment environment, and implement standing-order medical protocols.
2017 – Provides services for 221 individuals including over 60 veterans every day. Last year, it provided services to over 1,700 individuals. Its complete continuum of services includes medically supervised detoxification, ambulatory detox, intensive residential treatment, transitional living, sober living, outpatient treatment and intensive outpatient treatment. Also, intensive residential treatment, transitional living and outpatient treatments are provided for individuals who have co-existing substance abuse and mental health diagnosis.
2018 – The Tulsa Sobering Center was opened at 12&12. The center is a partnership with the Tulsa Police Department. When officers make an arrest for public intoxication they can bring the person to the sobering center where they will stay for 10 hours. It is an alternative to going to jail.
We obtained Joint Commission Accreditation in November 2018, earning The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe and effective care. We underwent rigorous onsite review in September 2018. During the review, compliance with behavioral health care standards related to several areas, including care, treatment, and services; environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm and substance use was evaluated. Onsite observations and interviews also were conducted. This Accreditation decision is effective until November 2021 at which time another onsite review will be conducted.
Established in 1969, the Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program currently accredits more than 2,250 organizations for a three-year period. Accredited organizations provide treatment and services within a variety of setting across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or child-welfare related needs.
OSU Medicine opened a new addiction clinic at the 12&12 facility. This state of the art facility gives patients individualized care. It is the continuation of an already strong partnership.
Its fees are based on the client’s ability to pay; however, no one is refused services solely because of their lack of financial resources. Its funding sources include government contracts, Tulsa Area United Way, commercial insurance providers, individuals and foundations.
