Addiction costs the state of Oklahoma an estimated $7.2 billion annually in emergency room visits, losses in productivity, and money spent fighting drug related crime. Growing numbers of Oklahoma citizens are dealing with the destruction and heartbreak caused by addiction to drugs such as methamphetamine, heroin, and prescription opioids, yet high quality treatment remains out of reach for many. Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City was created to provide those struggling with addiction access to high quality, affordable treatment for substance use disorders.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City offers a variety of treatment programs to meet the individual needs of our patients. From residential inpatient treatment to medical detoxification, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs, our curriculum is all-encompassing and directed at addressing addiction from all angles. This includes access to industry leading medications for the treatment of withdrawal symptoms, group and individual therapy sessions lead by master’s level clinicians, and extensive family counseling and follow-up support.
Within Oklahoma, drug addiction has reached crisis levels. In the last 12 years, deaths from oxycodone and hydrocodone have quadrupled, while in the last 3 years combined more than 2,684 Oklahomans have been killed by some sort of opioid overdose.
According to federal and state data:
From 2015 – 2018, more than 1300 newborns tested positive for substance exposure in the womb.
Every day there are 600 to 800 people on waiting lists for inpatient treatment services.

Oklahoma’s Commission on Opioid Abuse was created by the Oklahoma Senate to bring together members of the medical community, law enforcement, and business owners to tackle the emerging crisis of opioid addiction. As part of their evidence-based list of recommendations, the commission has asked the state to make more rehab facilities available, including inpatient treatment, outpatient, detox, and partial hospitalization programs.
Inpatient treatment at Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City comprises full time residency of 30-45 days with the goal of stabilizing and improving the life functionality of patients following withdrawal from alcohol, opiates, sedatives, or other mind altering substances. Our program is centered around teaching patients skills to maintain sobriety, with therapy sessions designed to explore the underlying triggers of substance abuse, and support groups designed to help recovering addicts share their story in a safe, private environment. Here the patient can build a network of support and skills that lasts well beyond our doors.
1/3 of People Who are Treated for Alcohol Problems Have No Further Symptoms 1 Year Later
In Oklahoma alone, roughly 251,000 people are dependent on or abuse alcohol each day. The state also has the 11th highest rate of alcohol poisoning in the nation. However, only 7.6% of Oklahomans received treatment for alcohol use disorder in the past year. Alcohol abuse and dependence are serious afflictions that hamper brain development, negatively change brain chemistry, and can drastically impact someone’s life. Inpatient rehab allows recovering addicts the chance to withdraw from alcohol in a secure and medically monitored environment, virtually eliminating the risk of death, overdose, and relapse for the duration of the program.
According to studies by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, roughly one-third of people who are treated for alcohol problems have no further symptoms 1 year later. Even more report substantially reducing their drinking and fewer alcohol-related problems. At Landmark Recovery, patients have the ability to participate in group and individual therapy, family therapy, as well as a multitude of holistic programs and advanced treatment methods such as Neurofeedback. No single addiction is exactly alike, so we’ve built our approach to be broad and effective for anyone, anywhere.
Methamphetamine and opioid abuse have been particularly devastating within the state of Oklahoma. Drug rehab is an effective means of treatment for individuals struggling with an addiction to any substance, and at Landmark Recovery, patients will have the opportunity to undergo medically supervised withdrawal from their drug of choice through the use of supplemental medications such as Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Naltrexone, Gabapentin, and more.
Drug rehab at Landmark Recovery offers patients the opportunity to detox safely and effectively. Our inpatient and outpatient treatment models comprise ongoing group and individual therapy sessions utilizing evidence-based modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and internationally renowned sobriety programs such as 12 Steps, SMART Recovery, and Seeking Safety.
Both Jefferson County and Cimarron County within Oklahoma have been identified by the CDC as counties at risk for outbreak of HIV or Hepatitis C. Drug related deaths within the state have increased at a similar rate to the United States average but remain slightly higher. However, inpatient stays due to opioid abuse have remained level, indicating that there may be a lack of adequate access to these kinds of resources. Drug and alcohol rehabs in Oklahoma are essential to combatting the rising crisis of opioid and other drug addictions within the state.

Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution
The Community Action Network and Think Smart Oklahoma have partnered with several organizations to provide Oklahomans with the latest information surrounding Naloxone availability. Increasing access to naloxone-containing products such as Narcan can help reduce fatal overdoses and raise awareness about opioid abuse. Naloxone should be administered following an opioid-involved overdose. It works by removing opioids from the brain’s receptors and prevents the suppression of breathing. Oklahomans can get more information on Narcan availability by texting Naloxone to 55155.

In the last 12 years, deaths from oxycodone and hydrocodone have quadrupled while the in the last 3 years combined more than 2,684 Oklahomans have been killed by some sort of opioid overdose. In an effort to help stem the tide of addiction-related devastation, an organization named FATE (Fighting Addiction Through Education) has released “Killing Pain”, a seven-part documentary series on the opioid addiction epidemic within the state. FATE aims to end the crisis through ongoing education about the scope of the problem and the kinds of solutions it will take to help. They worked with government leaders, business leaders, law enforcement, and addiction experts in order to craft this documentary, drawing on investigative journalism and interviews with experts to accurately tell the story.
