Chemical Dependency/Mental Health Program

The Chemical Dependency/Mental Health program offers substance abuse services to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes and non-indigenous tribal members living in the service area that includes the following ten counties: Caddo, Comanche, Grady, Stephens, Jefferson, Cotton, Tillman, Kiowa, Jackson, and Harmon.

 

The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes employs Linda Bruner as an Oklahoma Certified Professional Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

 

The Chemical Dependency/Mental Health Program provides outpatient counseling. Beginning with an assessment to determine the needs of our client, we then discuss the best course of action to begin planning treatment goals. We encourage family involvement and, if needed, help find resources for the client and their family members. This includes the spouse and children who have been affected by the substance abuse.

 

Also provided are mental health services. Referrals are made to area providers. Standard conditions for mental health referrals include: Psychological assessments; determination and severity of illness; crisis intervention; and outpatient counseling with a Mental Health professional, if needed.

 

The CD/MH Program also has a large selection of topics in its Educational Library. The collection of videos, DVDs and books provide information on the following: alcohol; drugs; women's recovery; men's recovery; teen alcohol and drug abuse; teen smoking; Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; 12 Step books; both men & women's meditation books; and various pamphlets available. Tribal members may view videos at any time during our regular working hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

Office hours: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
