Substance abuse is a major public health concern costing Oklahoma nearly $7 billion annually in expenses related to health care, public safety, social services, property loss, and lost productivity in the workforce. 1 Tragically, drug and alcohol abuse are major contributing factors for 85% of all homicides, 80% of all prison incarcerations, 75% of all divorces, 65% of all child abuse cases, 55% of all domestic assaults, 50% of all traffic fatalities, 35% of all rapes, and 33% of all suicides in Oklahoma. 1 1 In 2018, over 700 deaths in Oklahoma were related to accidental drug overdose. 2
Addiction is currently ravaging the state of Oklahoma. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, there are 261,000 Oklahoma residents (aged 12 and older) that meet the criteria for a diagnosis of substance use disorder. 3 To look at this statistic in another way, approximately 1 out of every 12 Oklahoma residents currently suffers from some form of addiction.
Alcohol is the most frequently abused substance in Oklahoma and about 1 in 17 Sooners currently suffers from alcoholism. There are also 94,000 Oklahoma residents who are addicted to illicit drugs and at least 22,000 individuals who suffer from an addiction to prescription painkiller drugs. 3 Overall, the Sooner State ranks first in the nation for rate of prescription painkiller abuse. 4
The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services estimates that nearly 181,000 Oklahomans, about 7% of the population, are in need of drug or alcohol addiction treatment. 1 Unfortunately, only about 7% of those in need of substance abuse treatment actually receive any form of addiction treatment. 3

The first step in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction at our addiction treatment center in OKC is detoxification, a process that involves the clearance of all addictive substances from the body. Depending on your drug of abuse and severity of addiction, you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop the use of drugs or alcohol. These symptoms may include: 5
For your safety and well-being, Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City offers medically supervised detoxification to all clients. Our trained clinical specialists will keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire medical detox process, monitoring you around-the-clock for signs of discomfort, pain, and potentially life-threatening complications. During your detox we may administer certain medications that can help reduce intense cravings and relieve severe symptoms of withdrawal.
You will smoothly transition into our addiction treatment program in OKC following the successful completion of detox. This next phase of recovery can include a combination of residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient services, medication management, and individual and group counseling.
An important component of our addiction treatment is behavioral therapy, which will help to identify and address the underlying psychological mechanisms behind your addiction. We offer several behavioral therapies that will keep you engaged in addiction treatment and provide incentives to remain abstinent, including cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. 6 During participation in these sessions you will modify old behaviors and learn new life skills needed to handle stressful circumstances and prevent relapse.
