Struggling with substance abuse in Oklahoma City? Landmark Recovery’s rehab programs will help you overcome your addiction with personalized, evidence-based substance abuse treatment plans.
Oklahoma has a substance abuse problem that has evolved into a major public health crisis affecting hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans. More than a quarter of a million Oklahoma residents, or around 8% of the state’s population, currently suffer from some form of drug or alcohol addiction. 2 Tragically, nearly 1,000 Oklahomans die from drug overdose every year, and in the last 3 years more than 1,300 newborn babies tested positive for substance exposure and immediately went into withdrawal the moment they were born. 1
Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug in Oklahoma. Nearly 1 in 4 Oklahomans report recent binge drinking, an abusive pattern of drinking defined as drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion, and around 1 in 17 suffers from alcoholism. 2 This rampant abuse of alcohol has led to tragic consequences for Oklahomans. In 2017, 119 people died from an unintentional overdose involving alcohol poisoning and 171 people were killed in car crashes involving a drunk driver. 3-4
Oklahoma has the highest rate of prescription opioid misuse in the country, 5 and around 1 in 143 Oklahomans currently battles an addiction to prescription opioids. 2 Nearly 1 in 14 Oklahoma residents are current marijuana users, and around 1 in 8 have reported the use of marijuana in the last year. 2 Also in the past year, 1 in 51 Oklahoma residents used cocaine, 1 in 294 used heroin, and 1 in 94 used methamphetamines. Overall, about 1 in 34 Oklahoma residents currently suffers from an addiction to some type of illicit drug. 2
The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services estimates that 181,000 Oklahomans are in desperate need of substance abuse treatment services. Unfortunately, only about 1 out of 10 Oklahomans in need of drug or alcohol treatment receive any form of treatment. 2

The first, and often most difficult, step in recovery from addiction is detoxification (or detox), a process that focuses on terminating substance use and flushing out all traces of drugs from your body. Substance abuse detox can be especially uncomfortable due to the negative physical and emotional effects associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal. Although withdrawal symptoms can vary based on the substance of abuse and severity of addiction, they commonly include: 6
