In 2012, almost 12% of Oklahoma’s population dealt with substance use disorders, which was the second highest rate in the entire nation. For people ages 25 to 64 in Oklahoma, unintentional poisoning is the leading cause of injury death. While meth and heroin contribute to some of these drug poisoning deaths, the majority are due to prescription painkillers. Every day, prescription drug overdoses kill nearly 2 people in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma—Fighting to End the Overdose Epidemic
In an attempt to save lives, the state is changing its approach to prevention and treatment. For intravenous drug users, Oklahoma has increased access to clean syringes. Lawmakers are currently working to establish a Good Samaritan law, which would protect people calling to report an overdose, as well as the person overdosing. There is a shift from stigmatizing substance abuse to trying to help those who are suffering.
These harm reduction policies also reflect a change in Oklahoma’s treatment facilities. Many people across the state are in need, and resources are increasing to help them.

Sobriety & Recovery in Oklahoma
Treatment will not “cure” addiction, but it can be the start to a life of recovery. There are more than 200 treatment facilities in Oklahoma, and we can help you find a rehab where you or your loved one can begin healing. Start researching facilities to see which services and treatment philosophies resonate with you.
The two main treatment formats are outpatient and inpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment is often seen as a more flexible option—clients attend treatment services during the day, but do not stay at the facility overnight. For some people who cannot afford to leave their work or family responsibilities for an extended period of time, outpatient still allows them to receive treatment services. Other people choose outpatient during the transition from an inpatient facility.
An inpatient rehab is also known as a residential rehab because clients live at the facility for a period of time. Counseling and therapy occurs during the day—both individually and in groups—and clients have access to 24/7 care, even when they’re not in a session. Inpatient treatment often involves work with self-help groups and recovery programs as well.
For people with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders, there is an inpatient option known as a dual diagnosis rehab. At these facilities, both conditions are treated side-by-side, because the symptoms are often intertwined. Mental disorders are the third leading cause of chronic disease in Oklahoma—behind pulmonary conditions and hypertension, but more prevalent than heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or stroke. Substance abuse and mental illness are serious conditions, and you or your loved one deserve proper care and attention.
The majority of different rehabs in Oklahoma offer:
- Substance abuse assessments and diagnoses
- Intervention services
- Work on social skills, like anger management
- One-on-one, group, and family counseling
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Education about substance abuse disorders
