About Us Traveling Total Treatment (TTT) is a not-for-profit 501c3 member organization that will produce and organize information sites about an array of low cost or free health care, wellness, and social services to low income, and or uninsured- underinsured residents of Lake County, IL. The information will be provided to the individuals by consultants made available by health, wellness, and social service providers (members of TTT) who travel on a regular schedule among a group of established Lake County neighborhood sites (rooms or space). The advantage to clients/residents is that they will have at no cost to themselves, a regular and reliable source of information on needed health care, wellness, and social services that are available to them provided in their neighborhood. TTT will be a well organized, professional neighborhood outreach program for agencies and providers that will better connect them to those in Lake County who are in need and whom providers are trying to reach. Overcoming Obstacles to Communication The vast amount of information that the internet provides can make understanding and accessing assistance programs difficult, especially for those who do not have a computer, are uneducated, and may have a language barrier. Due to limited funding, assistance programs are often understaffed, hindering our ability to answer questions in person. Our clients can be left at the mercy of e-mail and voicemail. Without adequate and timely access to programs, individuals can end up relying on emergency rooms; draining personal assets and funds; hungry; homeless...further exacerbating the economic crisis. Health and wellness organizations end up losing millions of dollars because services are rendered before clients have been approved for government services such as Medicare and Medicaid.
Traveling Total Treatment holds a bright future in serving the worlds needs. We are in the process of securing donations and investors to build our first Pilot in Lake County Il.
