Project Summary

The National Center for Wellness & Recovery (NCWR) at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences is leading this project that targets the Tulsa Metropolitan Service Area. The Tulsa MSA is a collection of six rural counties and one urban county in northeastern Oklahoma, all of which are ethnically diverse, with more than 8% of the population American Indian. The target population within the Tulsa MSA is pregnant women, mothers, and women of childbearing age with a history of, or who are at risk for, SUD/OUD – and their children, families, and caregivers. The NCWR is partnering with Family & Children's Services "Women in Recovery" program, which is a highly specialized, intensive 18-month outpatient alternative to incarceration for eligible women facing long-term prison sentences for non-violent, drug-related offenses. The program diverts women from incarceration while simultaneously addressing underlying trauma, supporting addiction recovery, enhancing self-sufficiency, reuniting them with their children, and creating successful, productive citizens. WIR is extremely unique as it is the only successful diversion program in the State of Oklahoma that is a gender-responsive program, developed especially for women. Our NAS project has three key strategies: prevention, treatment and recovery, as follows: Prevention: 1) Increase access to family-planning services to women of childbearing age, who have or are at risk for SUD/OUD; and, 2) coordinate the delivery of evidence-based prevention services and education programs to groups within the target population who are at risk of SUD/OUD. Treatment: 1) Improve engagement between the target population and behavioral health services, through cross-sectional, collaborative programs designed to increase points of service entry; and, 2) coordinate programs to reduce or remove physical barriers to behavioral health treatment among the target population by advancing service delivery that address documented barriers. Recovery: 1) Improve community understanding of and support for different pathways in recovery; and, 2) enhance discharge coordination of the target population – especially those leaving inpatient treatment facilities and/or the criminal justice system – who require linkages to home and community-based services.
