About Us

Wichita Mountains Prevention Network is a non-profit substance abuse prevention agency.  Founded in 1989, we are governed by a board of directors, led by an executive director, and staffed by teams in our Lawton and Ardmore offices.  Currently we receive two grants from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS): the Regional Prevention Coordinator (RPC) block grant ,and thehe Parnterships for Success (PFS) grants.  These grants fuel our efforts to provide basic prevention services to RPC Regions 10 and 11.  They also help us achieve the following, more specific outcomes:

Region 10

  • Reduce prescription drug use in Bryan County-PFS

  • Reduce underage drinking in Carter County-RPC

  • Reduce prescription drug abuse in Carter County-PFS

  • Reduce binge drinking in Bryan County (alcohol enforcement plan-RPC
     

Region 11

  • Reduce underage drinking in Comanche County-RPC

  • Reduce prescription drug abuse in Stephens County-PFS

  • Reduce underage drinking in Stephens County (alcohol enforcement plan -RPC/DFC

  • Reduce underage marijuana use in Stephens County -DFC
     

For administrative purposes the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services has divided the state into seventeen regions.  Each region receives an RPC block grant and may or may not receive a PFS grant.  RPC block grants cover multiple counties (all the counties within a region) while PFSs cover a single county.  To see which region your county belongs to, which agency supplies your region’s grant services, and whether your county is receiving a PFS services, take a look at the map below.  You can also visit ODMHSAS’s RPC locator.

The Drug-Free Community Grant is funded through Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Department of Health & Human Services and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. Currently there are 731 DFC Program Coalitions nationally.
