Addictions happen and it’s no new thing. Whether you’re a single mother who developed an addiction due to stresses or other issues, or you’re looking for resources for your child, it is nothing to be ashamed of. Life is stressful and sometimes things happen that cause us or our children to develop these issues, and it doesn’t mean we’re bad people but it does mean we need to recognize there is an issue. By looking up information and looking at articles like this, it means you recognize there is an issue or there at least might be an issue and that is a big step so you should feel proud in making that step. Fortunately Oklahoma does have resources and help for you or your child(s) that you can benefit from if you’re willing to find them.
Now knowing these resources are available and actually making to the step to search for them are two different things. Believe me, I have had family members who had addictions and I been close to it myself so I know how intimidating it can be. With that being said, I have composed this article to provide a few resources for you that will help get you a head start in the search.
