State of Addiction series has permanent home on NewsOK

If you picked up The Oklahoman or visited the NewsOK home page in the past week, you saw our weeklong series titled, “State of Addiction.”

It was a collaborative effort with the Tulsa World, Oklahoma Watch, State Impact Oklahoma, OETA, KWTV-9 and KGOU.

The series ended Sunday with three more stories, all of which can be found on our ‘State of Addiction’ page. We packaged all the coverage on as part of our larger “Know It: Addiction” site that also contains the in-depth features we’ve written in recent years. The site also includes, among other things, a rich list of resources for those needing help for themselves or someone else.

On the State of Addiction page, we have 15 installments from the series, ranging from the March 12 piece about the extensive cost of addiction to our taxpayers to the March 17 piece about the number of court cases in Tulsa and Oklahoma counties that are related to drug or alcohol abuse.

Through the 15 installments, you’ll see links to the other news sources who produced the stories and all of the photos, videos and related links for the series.

Much of the collaborative effort can be found on each of the partners’ individual websites (linked in the second paragraph of this post), but all of it can also be found in order of the date they appeared in The Oklahoman on our State of Addiction page.
