Underage drinking is a costly endeavor. The medical bills it racks up, the cost of lost work and a slew of other expenses cost Oklahoma taxpayers just short of a billion dollars a year. But a prevention program enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services is working to stop minors from drinking--and they're seeing results.

ONR Extra The Serenity Project

Featured in ONR Extras

The death last year of five-year-old Serenity Deal at the hands of her father has renewed calls for reform of the State Department of Human Services. Serenity had been placed in her father's custody by DHS caseworkers, despite evidence of severe physical abuse. The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy, and members of Serenity's family, are urging legislation to stem the tide of child abuse to ensure such a tragedy doesn't happen again. In this ONR Extra, here is more on what's being called "The Serenity Project".

DHS Settlement

Featured in Top Stories

The motto for the Oklahoma Department of Human Services is "stronger families build stronger lives". But some families are so broken, they can't be made stronger and it is the children who suffer. A 2008 lawsuit against DHS claimed the state agency was often only making children suffer more abuse at the hands of foster parents and case workers who were supposed to watch over them. A trial examining those allegations has been averted, with DHS agreeing to a settlement that requires the agency to develop a plan to better serve Oklahoma’s most vulnerable citizens.

Women in Recovery

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.
