Here at The Oklahoman, we are dedicated to making Oklahoma a better place to live, work and raise a family. As you just read, our state has one of the nation's biggest problems with prescription drug abuse. We partnered with Oklahoma Watch to find the gaps in our system, and we’re asking you to work with us to persuade our leaders to find a better solution.
You can do this by:
• Visiting the Oklahoma House website to find your legislative representative and let them know
why this is important.
• Use the hashtag #AddictedOklahoma
• Join the Facebook group Oklahoma’s Addiction and Mental Health Community to talk with others who are going through or have experienced the same issues.
Join us in the fight against addiction.
Together, we can make a difference.
