Located in the heart of Comanche County in Lawton, Oklahoma, Comanche Nation Prevention and Recovery Center (CNPRC) offers outpatient substance abuse and addiction treatment to the Native American community of southwestern Oklahoma. Members of the Comanche tribe—or any of the area’s tribes—are eligible to receive care at CNPRC.
Treatment and Staff
CNPRC offers two main programs: standard outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). For those looking to maintain their outside responsibilities—like work and family obligations—during treatment, the outpatient program at CNPRC consists of an initial assessment, followed by assignment to one of four core treatment groups: early recovery skills, recovery maintenance, relapse prevention and gambling awareness. Clients meet for groups once a week for 12 weeks. Upon completion, they move to an aftercare program for a minimum of six months.
For clients in need of more intense treatment, CNPRC’s IOP program (which is also 12 weeks long) meets for a minimum of four hours per week and consists of a mixture of individual and group therapy. There is also a journaling component to the program, in which clients interactively cover topics such as getting started with recovery, building a firm foundation through the 12 steps, substance dependence education, working through denial, steps to spirituality and living in recovery. As with standard outpatient, once this phase of treatment is completed, clients step down into a six-month aftercare program.
The staff at CNPRC is made up of licensed alcohol and drug counselors as well as a compulsive gambling counselor for those in the gambling awareness group.
CNPRC offers substance abuse and addiction assessments to anyone from the qualifying local tribes, as well as adolescent outpatient and adult inpatient referrals, prevention services and community programs such as a program for those in need of career assistance. CNPRC also has a family support component to their outpatient services, which is available to immediate family members of clients.
While CNPRC is limited in whom they can treat, the tribal communities of southwestern Oklahoma are well served by the 12-step based treatment programs available. The trained staff at CNPRC are committed to giving clients a solid foundation for long-term recovery. With a focus on community, Native American culture and spirituality, members of any of the surrounding tribes in need of care will find familiarity and comfort at CNPRC that may be missing at outside treatment facilities.
