Call for Help (405) 455-4180
Oklahoma is known for its rich history, famous art and cowboy museums, and its western charm. Residents and tourists alike enjoy attending baseball and basketball games in the capitol and observing the wide array of wildlife throughout the state.
Sadly, like many other states in the country, Oklahoma has several known problems related to drug and alcohol abuse. Possibly the most threatening of these problems are the rates of prescription drug overdose, crystal meth addiction, and alcoholism.

Commonly Abused Drugs in Oklahoma
One in four Oklahomans will experience mental health and addiction issues in their lifetime, according to the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Commissioner of Oklahoma. This means that treatment for those who struggle with addiction and dual diagnosis is crucial for this state.
Many Oklahoma residents begin abusing drugs to have fun or to self-medicate. In doing so, they put themselves at risk for addiction and developing or worsening symptoms of mental illness. Below is a brief overview of the most commonly abused substances in Oklahoma:
Opioid pain killers, such as hydrocodone (Vicodin), and sedatives, such as alprazolam (Xanax), cause more deaths in Oklahoma than cocaine and heroin combined.
These central nervous system depressants are especially dangerous when taken with alcohol, yet many Oklahomans still mix the substances. As a result, this lethal concoction may cause their heart and lung functions to slow down until they stop completely.
According to the Tulsa Police Department’s Special Investigations Division, the “shake-and-bake” method for producing methamphetamine came to Oklahoma around 2008. This method is easier and requires far less of the challenging-to-acquire ingredient, pseudoephedrine, than the traditional method. Since its introduction, the “shake-and-bake” method has caused an increase in meth production. Consequently, crystal meth addiction is rampant in Oklahoma.
From 2004 to 2012, 979 meth lab sites were discovered by the DEA in Tulsa County alone. Law enforcement officials estimate that this number reflects only a small fraction of the total number, since it is extremely difficult to uncover all meth labs in the state.
Although legal, alcohol is perhaps the most threatening substance for Oklahoma residents. The 2011-2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) revealed that 252,000 Oklahomans, ages 12 and older, abused or were dependent upon alcohol — more than triple the number of individuals who abused or were dependent upon illicit substances in the same time frame.
Alcohol treatment centers report a large number of admissions; however, thousands of Oklahomans who need treatment for alcoholism never receive it.
Marijuana is trafficked into Oklahoma or locally cultivated and is abused by many. It is either used by itself, or in conjunction with other drugs, in order to amplify or counteract their effects.
Cocaine is ever-present in the state, but only 1.29 percent of Oklahomans reported past year abuse of the drug in 2012.
At The Treatment Center, we specialize in treating addictions to all of the substances mentioned above, and more. We will also treat Oklahomans for ecstasy, GHB, ketamine, and synthetic drug abuse at our inpatient drug rehab.
