The Community-Based Prevention Services of Neighbors Building Neighborhoods in Muskogee would like to make you aware of our services and what support the CBPS can provide.
Our primary focus is to serve as a community resource of substance abuse prevention. We educate and inform communities through multiple strategies including community based services and environmental strategies.
Neighbors Building Neighborhoods CBPS provides services to Muskogee, McIntosh, and Pittsburg Counties.
We take the proactive approach in reducing substance abuse among communities, specifically adult binge drinking, underage drinking, stimulant use, and non-medical use of prescription drugs. We identify factors in a community that cause the risk of substance abuse and work to promote protective factors that serve to minimize the risk of substance use/abuse.
To help reduce underage drinking the CPBS partners with local law enforcement to conduct strategies such as alcohol compliance checks, promote Oklahoma’s Social Host Law, and refer local retailers to the ROCMND Responsible Beverage Service & Sales (RBSS Training), a free, ABLEapproved alcohol server training.
To reduce the non-medical use of prescription drugs and stimulant use, the CPBS focuses on strategies that promote proper storage, safe disposal of prescription drugs, and preventing overdoses.
For example, the CBPS promotes local prescription drug drop boxes in the communities and partners with organizations in local Rx disposal days, and directs people to OK I’m Ready, a site centralized to help people with substance use issues, and options for treating those issues.
The CPBS also works very closely with partner coalitions, and seeks to equip community members with services and strategies to solve local problems and impact local norms. Neighbors Building Neighborhoods CBPS is funded through the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
