About the Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) Program
The Tribal Opioid Response Program is a partnership between Southern Plains Tribal Health Board (SPTHB) and the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic (OKCIC). The program employs a multi-pronged approach to address the high rates of opioid use disorder (OUD) among Native Americans in Oklahoma, including a focus on prevention, treatment, harm reduction, and recovery. We provide tangible resources for clinical and therapeutic treatment for those with OUD, in addition to an array of harm reduction supplies to promote safer use and prevent fatal overdose. We strive to deliver quality services throughout all stages of substance use and provide individualized access to resources and treatment.
Our goals are to…
- Promote and provide resources for safe storage and disposal of medication
- Prevent fatal overdose
- Treat OUD at every stage
- Remove barriers to care
- Incorporate Harm Reduction into Tribal Treatment and Recovery
Our core values:
- We treat all patients with respect, understanding and acceptance
- We know that infusing culture and tradition into all programming is integral to successful treatment and recovery
- We aim collaborate within OKCIC, and with outside community groups and organizations in order to provide a holistic treatment approach
TOR is a partnership between OKCIC and SPTHB. OKCIC Pharmacy, Behavioral Heath, Physical Therapy, and Clinical staff collaborate on programming.
