Nearly 4 out of 5 unintentional poisoning deaths in Oklahoma are a result of prescription drug abuse. Prescription drug abuse is Oklahoma’s fastest growing drug abuse issue. To combat this epidemic Oklahoma created the Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success. Agencies participating in this granted partnership are charged with working assessing the need for intervention within their communities and creating the best evidence based strategy.
DCCCA is the grant recipient for the prevention of non-medical use of prescription medicine in people ages 12-25 in Oklahoma County. DCCCA has worked diligently to create relationships with local schools, colleges, and other youth organizations. We also work with community members to decrease Oklahoma County’s prescription drug epidemic through education, awareness, and other prevention activities.
