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