An Oklahoma City clinic specializing in methamphetamine and opiate addictions has been sold to the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma's economic development authority.

Quapaw Counseling Services, 1301 SE 59 St., is now known as Absentee Shawnee Counseling Services. The grand opening ceremony is from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday .

“The reason for the sale is that the Absentee Shawnees have the jurisdiction here that the Quapaws did not. However, under Absentee Shawnee Counseling Services, we will continue to offer the same excellent treatment to all people, native and non-native, that we have for the past four years here,” said Dan Cross, executive director.

Treatment is low cost, with no out-of-pocket expense to people who are Medicaid or O-EPIC eligible.
