Maintenance intervals should be available in the manual and probably also posted online.

For a 2001 Civic: Per page 196 of the owner's manual you should replace the timing belt every 110,000 miles or every 7 years whichever comes first.

However, on page 233 of the owner's manual it says:
Replace this belt at 60,000 miles (US) or 100,000 km (Canada) if you
regularly drive your car in one or more of these conditions:
In very high temperatures (over 110 degrees F,43 degrees C).
In very low temperatures (under -20F, -29C).

perhaps I am mistaken but I thought the civic was a chain... and not a belt

I would follow the recommended schedule as per the owner's manual.
If that chain breaks... there will be a mess of things you will need to repair.

In this case, preventative maintenance would be advised

The 2006+ (8th gen) Civics have timing chains but the 2001-2005 7th gen Civic has a belt.
