OSU Center for Wellness and Recovery

A $1.4 million award from the Center for Disease Control, awarded to the Oklahoma Department of Health and subcontracted to OSU Center for Health Sciences, will allow the Center for Wellness and Recovery to provide education on the use of prescription opioids, and treatment of opioid-use disorders in four of Oklahoma’s hardest hit communities: McAlester, Tahlequah, Duncan, and Ardmore. 

Each week-long event will include a town hall, workshops, health screenings, seminars and a screening of the documentary “Killing Pain.”

OSU Medicine physicians as well as OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine residents and staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions throughout the week.

There will also be special trainings and accredited lectures for health care providers, law enforcement officers, legal professionals and other agencies.
