A letter from our CEO
In the last year we have undergone some dramatic transformations. CTI continues with our dedicated legacy team & Dr. Subera is the new Medical Director. We are still at the same location in Tulsa at 46th Place & Memorial, but our buildings have an amazing makeover. Come check us out! The Center for Therapeutic Interventions, (CTI) was established in 2005 to provide a “one-stop shop” approach to outpatient counseling. Our organization has evolved and grown so vastly to meet the behavioral healthcare needs of our communities; we hardly resemble the same small agency I founded 15 years ago. A few things that have not changed are our dedication to provide quality care, innovation in service delivery, and our strengths-based, person-centered philosophy. Our mission is to assist each individual to reach his or her full potential with encouragement and empowerment and instilling hope of him or her achieving improvement in all areas of life through a holistic strengths based model of counseling and peripheral services. We try, in all ways, to carry out this mission in every aspect of our business and client care. We encourage and foster many relationships within our communities including accepting and requesting input from community stakeholders to ensure that their needs are addressed in the communities we provide services regarding behavioral health care. CTI has been accredited with ODMHSAS & CARF since 2006 for behavioral healthcare services and since 2017 for Opioid Treatment Program services. CTI is also proud to provide problem gambling treatment program services to address the needs of other types of addiction and was the first certified gambling treatment program in Oklahoma in 2006.
CTI employs an incredibly passionate and dedicated multi-disciplinary team of professionals to assist, encourage and support those persons we serve to attain recovery. Most of our therapeutic team is dually licensed or under supervision to treat both Mental Health disorders and Substance Use disorders, which allows consumers to be treated from strengths-based, person-centered approach, holistically instead of singularly addressing depression and/or drug problems. The “decompartmentalization” of treatment and “one-stop shop” environment has proved to increase positive outcomes. To meet the needs of our communities, CTI began to provide Medication Assisted Treatments (MAT) in 2012. Since that time, CTI leadership quickly developed an addiction medical team to meet the growing demand for opioid dependency treatment services and in 2016, CTI established a methadone clinic to provide the necessary services for those struggling with opioid addiction.
CTI is also passionate about encouraging family members to participate in treatment. We have found increasing the positive support of the consumer, providing a healthy family environment, and addressing underlying issues not only improves outcomes, but also improves the overall functioning of the family system and ultimately the community at large. CTI has been providing family services since our inception and has continuously facilitated Strengthening Families Program services since 2012. We are excited to have several of our team members focused on the behavioral health needs of children, who have specialized trainings in trauma and infant mental health.
CTI is also directly involved with Oklahoma Behavioral Health Association, OBHA a non-profit advocacy group for Oklahomans affected by substance use and mental illness and helping to change lives, impact communities and offer individuals and families freedom from the devastation addiction and mental illness. This organization works to advocate for quality behavioral healthcare and educate legislators on the importance of behavioral health as a focus in overall healthcare. I am honored to serve on the Board of OBHA.
CTI is very proud to provide services to individuals and their families throughout Northeast Oklahoma. I am looking forward to further growth and expansion of innovative services for those in need of behavioral healthcare at CTI.
