Addiction Treatment & OK Watch (13:20)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma continues to send more women to prison than any other state. 63 percent of them suffer from substance abuse. Despite treatment in prison, many of the women get out, start using again and eventually end up back behind bars. A relatively new therapy is looking at addiction from a gender based perspective. It explores women's childhood traumas as the springboard to their cycle of drug and alcohol abuse. According to the institute for child advocacy there are 27,000 children of incarcerated parents in Oklahoma. Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oklahoma finds mentors to help these children break the inter-generational cycle of crime through the "Amachi" program. However due to federal budget cuts that program is now in jeopardy. We spoke with Jaclyn Cosgrove who is covering this issue for Oklahoma Watch.

Featured in Top Stories

There are hundreds of Oklahomans now in county jails and state prisons who are mentally ill. They end up there for breaking a law, but in many cases that crime was the result of a mental illness that has gone untreated. With the Oklahoma County jail now recognized as the state's largest mental health facility, a prosecutor and a public defender find themselves in the role of trying to find justice in a new way.

Tar Creek Superfund (11:12)

Featured in Top Stories

It was almost a century ago that a mining camp was established in far northeastern Oklahoma, in an area that would become the town of Picher. By the 1920's Picher was the center of the largest lead and zinc mining operation in the nation. But now, Picher does not exist. The town died from contamination, by-products of mining, which forced the federal government to close Picher and relocate its residents. And while almost all the people are gone, much of the hazard still remains.

As most Oklahoma children are settling back into the school year their biggest worries are who they'll sit with at lunch or if the other kids will like them. But for a growing number of students they're facing much bigger concerns such as where they'll sleep that night or if they'll have food to eat after school. The State Department of Education is reporting more than 15,000 students are considered homeless according to federal guidelines. And the trend does not seem to be slowing down.
