Drug Screening Program

One of many things unique to our Drug Screening program is testing is available and free of charge for any child in Canadian County, as well as any adult who needs services in conjunction with the treatment or case management of a child’s case.

DSP provides urinalysis for up to 15 substances, Nicotine testing, and ETG (alcohol) testing that reports use within the last 80 hours. Hair follicle tests are also available at the expense of the client. All testing utilizes GC/MS, a comprehensive, rapid, and sensitive drug screening procedure for confirmations on positive test results and oral swabs.

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

Almost 90,000 children in Oklahoma are being raised by grandparents, and that number doesn’t include the many informal kinship arrangements that are unreported. Raising grandchildren can be a tremendous challenge and can become overwhelming with feelings of grief, sadness, and a sense of loss and disappointment, or anger and resentment.


The Canadian County Juvenile Detention Center is housed inside the Gary E. Miller Children’s Justice Center. It serves as a safe and secure holding facility for juveniles who have been arrested and are waiting to proceed through the court process or who have not yet been placed. The detention center is not a treatment facility, but mental health programs and trainings inform staff in providing trauma-informed care. A very strict and structured but fair philosophy helps residents see the benefits of staying out of trouble with the law, staying off drugs, and staying in school.

Supervised Visitation Program

Canadian County Supervised Visitation Center strives to keep children safe and provide a neutral environment that promotes healthy, safe interactions between family members and prevent re-victimization. This center is child-focused and provides a safe and comfortable place for parents and their children to create, build, and/or maintain positive relationships. This is also a supervised Safe Exchange Center that strives to prevent verbal and physical confrontation from occurring between family members during the exchange of children for unsupervised visitation of with non-custodial parents.

Nurturing Parenting

Nurturing Parents is an innovative, empowering education program that helps parents learn ways to improve their parenting skills through competency-based courses that meet specific needs of families. Parents who take care of themselves are better suited to take care of another person.

Comprehensive Home-Based Services (CHBS) and
Parent Aide Services (PAS)

CHBS/PAS is a comprehensive program that serves Canadian County families that are impacted by child abuse and neglect. CHBS and PAS are provided through a contract with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. The CHBS staff provide an array of case management services designed to prevent: children’s removal from the home, assist in the reunification process back into the home, or stabilize adoptive or other permanent out-of-home placements that are at risk of disruption.

Restorative Justice

The Restorative Justice Diversion Program creates an opportunity for a facilitated dialogue between a victim, the responsible youth, caregivers/families, and community members to discuss the impact of the incident on everyone. There is self-reflection by all parties and supportive, yet firm, accountability. This culminates in coming together to produce a consensus-based plan for the young person to make things right for the victim, their caregivers/family, the community, and themselves.

** While restorative justice programs in Western culture have been recently popularized, we want to acknowledge that the majority of values, principles, and practices of restorative justice are borrowed from ancient and indigenous practices in cultures around the globe.

Family Treatment Court

Family treatment court (FTC), considered a problem-solving court, is a family court docket for cases of child maltreatment in which parental substance use is a contributing factor. FTCs offer a promising model for all courts, providing insight into better ways of engaging families both before and — when necessary — after children are placed in foster care. It is an intensively supervised, court-monitored program. It involves court appearances before the Judge and Family Treatment Court Team every other week. This program can provide parents with substance use disorders with the necessary tools and supports to remain drug-free for life.
