Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page. Here you will find answers to questions that are most commonly asked. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please contact us.

What types of healthcare organizations do you work with?

Rethink Tobacco Indiana works specifically with mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities.  Some of the types of settings we work with include community mental health centers (CMHCs), substance abuse treatment facilities, detox facilities, psychiatric hospitals, and recovery residences.  However, we are open to working with other systems or providers that deliver mental health/addiction services. 

How much do your services cost?

There is no cost for services provided by the staff of Rethink Tobacco Indiana.  Services include, but are not limited to, tobacco treatment integration technical assistance, education and trainings for staff members and providers, and more!

Will you be working with my patients on their tobacco dependence?

No, we do not work directly with an organization’s patients on their tobacco dependence or addiction but rather, we provide training and education to staff and providers to enhance their skills when working with their own patients to address their tobacco use.

What is the typical length of time that you spend working with an organization?

We understand that time is very valuable, and your priority is to address the primary concern of the patient.  Organizations differ in size, staff members, and resources, therefore each entity may have a different goal when working with us.  We typically begin our work with an assessment of the organization and then develop a unique tobacco education plan which can be tailored to meet certain timelines/deadlines.

Do you provide free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) medications?

Unfortunately, since Rethink Tobacco Indiana functions off grant dollars, we do not provide free NRT products.  While we are not able to provide NRT, the Indiana Tobacco Quitline does offer two weeks of free NRT to eligible individuals.

Are you able to help us create or revise our tobacco-grounds policy?

Yes! We can review and revise existing tobacco-grounds policies and we’re capable of developing new tobacco-free grounds policies from scratch.

If my organization isn’t technically a mental health or addiction treatment facility, are you able to still work with us?

We are happy to help any organization that we can!  We encourage you to contact us and we’ll determine how we can provide services to your organization or refer you to one of our wonderful partners!
