37 Years Of Commitment To Quality
Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma annually helps build better lives for over 5,000 adults and children in communities throughout northeastern Oklahoma. Our commitment to quality is even stronger today than when we opened in 1982. We are the only Oklahoma community mental health center certified in the internationally recognized Sanctuary model of trauma-informed care.
The most important measure of quality comes from the people served. Our clients give us a 97 percent overall satisfaction rating. They also give us the highest compliment by referring others.
Outside organizations also acknowledge our quality. The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits chose Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma as a finalist for the Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Award. Only 27 of Oklahoma’s more than 18,000 nonprofits were chosen as finalists. We won the Community Health Services division award, sponsored by the George Kaiser Family Foundation.
Our children’s and adult outpatient services, children’s and adults case management, physical health care management and wellness services (health home) and CALM Center, crisis stabilization for youth ages 10-17, are accredited by CARF International. This accreditation assures clients that we have met the highest quality standards.
We also are certified by and under contract with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services to provide mental health and substance abuse services. This certification requires a commitment to quality care.
Finally, our agency was recertified in the Sanctuary Model in January 2018, showing our commitment to trauma-informed care and creating a safe environment for staff and clients.

We Are A CARF® International Accredited Provider

We received their report and have been accredited for another 3 years through June 30, 2022.
The CALM Center Renovations Revealed
After a two-year capital campaign that successfully raised 1.3 million, The CALM Center’s renovation is complete. An Unveiling, Ribbon Cutting and Open House Celebration will be held on Wednesday September 25th from 2 – 5pm.
The CALM (Child and Adolescent Life Management) Center has provided immediate crisis support for over 4,000 Oklahoma youth ages 10-17 and their families around the clock since 2008. It is the only youth crisis stabilization center in eastern Oklahoma and one of only three in the state, filling the gap between outpatient care and inpatient/residential care. With an increased demand for this critical care, these renovations were needed to create a larger, more welcoming lobby, new multipurpose room for family visits and education, and new offices for admissions and counseling.
September is Suicide Prevention Month
According to the World Health Organization, one person dies every 40 seconds from suicide; it has become a 'global public health issue'. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; however, among individuals ages 10 – 34 it is the 2nd leading cause of death and is the 4th leading cause among ages 35 – 54. The suicide rate among males is nearly four times higher than females.
Nationally, Oklahoma is ranked 8th in having the highest rate of suicide. In Oklahoma, more suicides occur than motor vehicle accidents every year and suicide outpaces homicide 3 to 1. Firearms are the most common weapons used.
Suicide does not discriminate, everyone can be at risk. Suicidal behavior is complex and there is no single cause. We can all help in suicide prevention by being more aware of these signs, symptoms and main risk factors.
Counseling & Recovery Services provides suicide risk screening for people who want help. Help is also available at 918.744.4800 or the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1.800.237.8255.
Your life matters. Don’t suffer alone. We're here to help.
