Finding help

Let us help find the services and supports that are right for you.

Overcoming a substance use disorder is not as simple as resisting the temptation to take drugs through willpower alone. Recovery may involve medication to help with cravings and withdrawal as well as different forms of therapy. The fact is, treatment for substance use disorders, including addiction, is not a one size fits all sort of thing. There are many different paths to recovery and a host of evidence-based treatment options, resources and supports that can and do work.

Substance use disorder is a chronic condition. Recovery is possible. In fact, about 90% of individuals who receive evidence-based treatment report they get better. Thousands upon thousands of Oklahomans are proof.

An assessment by a certified treatment provider will help determine the type of treatment that is best for you. All state certified providers will be able to conduct an initial assessment. Comprehensive Community Behavioral Health Centers (CCBHC) and Comprehensive Community Addiction and Recovery Centers (CCARC) are state contracted facilities that offer a range of financial options (including free) and the ability to schedule an appointment or walk-in the door. They also have access to a wider scope of services offered by the statewide treatment system.

If you’re not ready to reach out, you may consider completing a self assessment to learn which treatment type might be right for you. This simple screener is anonymous and confidential. It is made possible through a partnership with Shatterproof, a national non-profit organization addressing addiction.

Even if you don’t personally have a substance use issue, most of us know a friend or loved one who has been affected. Please take a moment to watch someone else’s story.

Treatment isn’t one size fits all.
It meets you where you are.

“Treatment” to a lot of people means a detox or a residential rehab facility. Treatment for substance use disorder can take place in different settings that include inpatient and outpatient. A treatment plan is typically designed to address an individual’s physical, psychological, emotional and behavioral issues, in addition to their substance use.

Co occurring mental health issues are common with substance use disorder. An assessment from a professional provider can be a great first step in the journey to recovery. Before you make any decisions, take some time to understand what treatment is, what it isn’t, and the options that are available to you. Certified providers will work with you to create a plan that best addresses your needs.

Types of Treatment Programs


Clients typically attend no more than nine hours of treatment a week (slightly less for teens) at a specialty facility while continuing to live at home. Many programs make services available in the evenings and on weekends so individuals can remain in school or continue to work. Find an outpatient provider near you

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Clients attend 10-20 hours of treatment a week (slightly less for teens) at a specialty facility while continuing to live at home. Many programs make services available in the evenings and on weekends so individuals can continue to work or stay in school. This is a better option for individuals with accompanying medical or psychological issues who need multiple services, or have not been successful in outpatient treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Clients attend four to eight hours of treatment a day (20 or more a week) while continuing to live at home. Most families use these types of programs when their child needs an intensive and structured experience. Day treatment can be appropriate for individuals with co-occurring mental illness.


Treatment provided in specialty units of hospitals or medical clinics offering both detox and rehabilitation services. Typically used for people with serious medical conditions or mental disorders.

Residential (rehab)

These programs provide treatment in a residential setting and can last from one month to a year. Typically, residents go through different phases as they progress through the program. During certain phases, contact with your child may be limited. Ask questions about the program’s policies and procedures, and any additional services like education or vocational training.

Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT)

For individuals with a physical dependency on certain substances, primarily heroin and other opioids, medication is provided in a specialized outpatient setting in combination with counseling and other treatment services.

Luckily, this isn’t a call you have to make yourself. Our state has tons of trained professionals ready to help get you the best care possible. Some things a professional will help you look for in a treatment provider are:

  • Continued Care: We’re in this for the long haul! Quality treatment programs provide long term care like counseling or recovery coaching.
