Due to federal confidentiality regulations, if someone calls the facility asking for a patient we can neither confirm nor deny the patient's presence. Our response will be "If that person is here, he or she will receive a message to call you." The patient will receive the message and can call back in the evening during their free time. They may call out either call collect or use a pre-paid calling card.
Q & A
We reserve the right to discharge residents at any time if they are not complying with our expectations. For example, any drug/alcohol use, violence or threats of violence toward staff or peers, or sexual relations with anyone in the facility will not be tolerated.
Hazelden is not responsible for lost, stolen, or broken personal items.
What is the difference between a sober house and the Tribeca Twelve Residence?
What to Bring
At Tribeca Twelve, we offer support services by licensed counselors with 24/7 access to on-site staff. Many sober houses or dorms promote a policy of drug and alcohol free living but they don't have the support in place to enrich recovery. Tribeca Twelve provides young adults 18 to 29 in recovery from addiction an independent sober living environment with fully integrated support services, recovery coaching, and access to many recreational activities and special events.
Is Tribeca Twelve an addiction treatment program?
Tribeca Twelve is not a treatment program. Residents must be clean and sober and agree to undergo periodic drug testing and evaluation. The program is open to young adults, during and after treatment, and is designed to promote independent living in a supported environment. The goal is to build strong recovery skills around self, family and community and to take those skills and knowledge into life after graduation.
How do I apply?
Simply give us a call at 1-212-226-1114 or 1-800-257-7810 to get more information or to schedule an assessment and see if Tribeca Twelve is right for you.

The purchase of food, medications, non-routine drug testing, professional treatment services, and special services (e.g., meetings with off-site treatment providers).
Is there a minimum stay requirement?
A minimum stay of one month is required.
What is the refund policy if the resident elects to leave the program for any reason?

Are any of the services eligible for payment by health insurance?
The recovery support in the residence program is not eligible for insurance payment. Professional treatment and continuing care services may be reimbursed by commercial insurance. Hazelden is insurance friendly and will work with residents to determine the availability of commercial insurance to pay for professional services provided by Hazelden. For those residents obtaining professional treatment services elsewhere, residents should consult with their own treatment providers for more information.
What are residents responsible to bring?

There are security cameras located at the entrance to the building, on each floor and in other key locations. NYPD Precinct 1 is located one block away and, due to the proximity to the building, there is a high police presence.
How will family and friends stay connected?
Tribeca Twelve residents will identify their key support system of family and friends with their recovery coach. Once those are identified, updates on the resident's progress, activities, successes and other information will happen in partnership with the resident and recovery coach either in-person or by telephone on a scheduled basis. Releases of information must be signed by the resident to discuss any confidential information with their friends and family.
Are residents required to obtain treatment from Hazelden?
Residents are not required to obtain treatment from Hazelden. If residents elect to obtain treatment from other providers, Hazelden will work to provide appropriate referrals and provide information about Hazelden's recovery philosophy to the resident's treatment providers (including health care providers) to ensure the best alignment with the goals of maintaining sobriety.
How will the program work with the resident's treatment provider?
With written permission, Hazelden will work with the resident's treatment providers to coordinate recovery care planning based on treatment goals and to provide regular communications on activities and successes along with results of drug testing and other information.
What happens if the resident relapses?
Hazelden will evaluate the circumstances on a case-by-case basis to determine the most appropriate course of action. Actions can range from discharge from the program and referral to a higher level of care, increased drug test monitoring and revisions to the recovery plan of care, among other actions. If relapse occurs, the goal is prompt identification and intervention to restore sobriety. If the resident is discharged a refund will be given for days not spent at Tribeca Twelve.
