Oklahoma is known for being the state with the most tornadoes, averaging 52 tornadoes each year. Many other states average 1 tornado per year. Each day in Oklahoma, an average of one person dies from an Opioid overdose. From 1999 to 2016, over 10,000 people living in Oklahoma died from a drug overdose, with 54% of all overdoses in 2016 involving an Opioid. In 2018, 43% of drug overdose deaths involved Opioids. Research from 2005 to 2013 found that out of those aged 12 or older who had an illicit drug dependence, only 13.9% of them received treatment in Oklahoma. That left 86.1% of people without any professional care or help with their addiction. Overcoming a drug or alcohol addiction alone is extremely difficult and relapse is more likely to occur without a support system. Treatment centers can provide detox, care, and an aftercare plan upon leaving rehab. Discover your rehab options in Oklahoma today.
