Many children and adults, with or without cognitive impairments have developed behaviors that interfere with their education, social integration or productive work.  Sometimes maturity or medications have an effect in reducing the impact of challenging behaviors, but frequently it is necessary for someone to teach these individuals new social behaviors or functional skills.  Often a person will have the ability to display more desired behavior, but they are not consistent about exhibiting these improved behaviors at appropriate times.

Substance Abuse Rehabilitation:

Substance abuse is an on-going issue that plagues many Oklahomans.  Substance Abuse Rehabilitation is very important in the recovery process.  It can include alcohol as well as multiple types of street drugs.  Abuse of a substance also extends to the misuse of prescription drugs.  There are countless variations of how drugs can be abused and to what extent they are being ingested.  Regardless of the severity of the addiction, substance abuse rehabilitation offers many benefits to those who choose to enlist help.

According recent articles published in March of 2012 in the daily Oklahoman:

  1. Addiction costs Oklahoma an estimated $7.2 billion a year more than the entire State Government budget of $6.7 billion.
  2. Oklahoma tops all states when it comes to nonmedical use of painkillers.
  3. Overdose of prescription painkillers, anxiety drugs kill more Oklahoma than Cancer.
  4. State autopsy data shows the most prolific killers are the painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone, often in combination with the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam.

Deciding to take that first step and enter an outpatient rehab program is courageous and should not be looked at as a sign of weakness or defeat.  Rehabilitation is crucial in becoming ones’ own self again.  Give us a call if you or a loved has taken the first step.

Case Management:

We have dedicated and compassionate staff that makes sure all your needs is attended to.  Our Case Managers Coordinate and collaborate with other services, agencies, resources, to bring all key people together within a planned framework of action toward the achievement of established goals.  It may involve liaison activities and collateral contacts.  

“Case Management is the coordination of a multiple-service plan.  By the time any alcohol and other drug abusers enter treatment, they tend to manifest dysfunction in a variety of areas.  For example, a heroin addict may have hepatitis, lack job skills, and have a pending criminal charge.  In this case, the counselor might monitor his medical treatment, make a referral to a vocational rehabilitation program, and communicate with representatives of the criminal justice system.”
