|The Department operates or
contracts with substance
abuse treatment centers across Oklahoma, many with
satellite offices. Among these programs' offerings are
assessment and referral, detoxification, outpatient
counseling, residential treatment, substance abuse
education, transitional living, and aftercare services.
Some programs are designed with the needs of specific
groups in mind, such as women with children, adolescents,
or Native Americans.
The Department also supports prevention programs to help young people build healthy lifestyles and acquire skills that reduce their risk of later developing alcohol or drug dependence. These programs involve training to develop strong, positive self-images; education about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs; free literature and educational videos; and assistance to community groups in establishing effective organizations to fight substance abuse. To implement its prevention programs, the Department funds a network of 18 Area Prevention Resource Centers, as well as several other programs offering education and assistance to schools, parents, and community groups.
For help in linking to services, call the Department's Reach-Out hotline at 800-522-9054 (V/TDD). This number is staffed around the clock to provide information and assistance.
