Mission Our mission is to provide help and inspire hope for individuals, families and communities through the prevention and treatment of addiction and mental illness.
In 1972, Father Richard "Dick" Virtue founded the Norman Alcohol Information Center (NAIC) with a $6,000 grant from the National Episcopal Churchwomen and gifts from Norman civic leaders. The following year, NAIC become a United Way of Norman partner, and in 1975 became the first agency in the state of Oklahoma to receive a state contract to provide outpatient treatment services.  Father Dick Virtue served as NAIC's founding director for 30 years.  He understood alcoholism and how it impacted the family.  As a very successful business man, he lost everything -- his business, his family, and himself due to his alcoholism.  Through recovery, he gained his life back and was ordained as an episcopal priest with a special mission of helping the alcoholic.  Father Virtue advocated tirelessly for treatment services and was the pioneer who steered NAIC's legacy as a premier treatment center which has saved thousands of lives over the last 40 years. 
Still known as NAIC, our name changed in 2008 to Norman Addiction Information & Counseling to better communicate the services we provide today.  In the early days of NAIC, we had a small office in St. John's Episcopal Church with a phone answered by Father Virtue himself.  Today, we have a beautiful two-story brick building and provide comprehensive outpatient treatment services for alcoholism, drug addiction, problem and compulsive gambling and co-occurring mental health conditions.  The setting has changed and the services have expanded but we continue NAIC's mission.  

 Our top accomplishments from last year:

  • It was reported 92% of individuals surveyed reported improved family relationships.
  •  It was reported 100% of individuals surveyed reported no longer using drugs or alcohol or not as much.
  • It was reported 99% of individuals surveyed reported positive lifestyle changes.

 Our top 3 goals for this year:

  •  To ensure 80% of individuals and families report making a positive change in their lives.
  • To ensure 80% of individuals and families report improved family relationships.
  • To ensure 80% of individuals and families report an elimination or reduction of alcohol and/or other drug use.
The top most pressing needs:
  • Additional funding sources to hire additional counselors.  Currently, there is a 10 week waiting list to get an assessment  $50,000 for one or $100,000 for two -- costs include benefits.
  • Updating out technology to ensure effective treatment services throughout all NAIC locations.
CEO/Executive Director Statement

To sum up the last year, I would use two words:  Community Partnerships.     Despite one of the toughest years yet in funding, NAIC has thrived, and this is due in large part to our connection with the communities we serve. Our partners understand that the work we do saves lives and heals families.

The Social and Voluntary Services Commission (SVSC) through the City of Norman funded a Wellness Group pilot project that turned out to be successful and sustainable. Our clients are enhancing their own recovery by expanding their wellness financially, physically, spiritually and mentally. SVSC also   funded our partnership with Norman Public Schools Alternative to Suspension Program which served almost double the number of students than the prior year. 

We had two new partners, Kerr Foundation and the Boeing Employees’      Community Fund, which will allow us to finish the remodeling of the Sarkeys Education Center.  We partnered with One Vision, One Voice by providing expertise regarding addiction and weekly case management services for     homeless Veterans suffering from addiction. The amazing staff and volunteers at  United Way of Norman miraculously found a way to increase funding to NAIC and other sister agencies despite the difficult financial  climate in        Oklahoma this past year.

The partners are numerous, and this report will recognize so many more. Thank you for being part of our mission in providing help and inspiring hope.

Board Chair Statement

I’m pleased to share the 2016 Norman Addiction Information and Counseling Annual Report. NAIC has continued its strong ties to the community and      remains financially sound. On behalf of the NAIC Board of Directors, I wish to express a special gratitude to our donors, staff and volunteers.

Oklahoma continues to be a state with one of the highest rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. Indeed, the Norman community has seen its share of tragedy. Despite state funding cutbacks, NAIC has been able to find the        necessary funding and keep program cuts at a minimum. NAIC is committed to saving one life, one family at a time. Partnering with other social service      organizations over the years has enabled NAIC to reach more people in need, facilitate new forums for raising   awareness about the impact of addiction and to share resources that strengthen the communities we serve. 

NAIC has been treating alcohol and drug addiction in the Norman area for over 40 years. During this period, we raised awareness about substance abuse in the community. NAIC was again a voice in the citizen dialogue this past year by facilitating an important conversation that addictive behavior is a disease and that shame about one’s addiction is a serious obstacle to treatment.

In our 2016 Annual Report, you will find how NAIC demonstrates every day that it is a financially and professionally sound organization through various statistical data and financial reporting information. Just as important, there are stories that lift the spirits of our staff. Stories of lives changed with renewed purpose and of individuals who now contribute to a healthy, growing community.

NAIC provides outpatient substance abuse treatment for adolescents and their families.  Adolescents range from age 12 to 17.  Adolescents are referred by City of Norman, District Attorney's Office and by family members.  Family members are required to participate in the treatment.  Once the client is assessed, the counselor works with the person to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, case management and education depending on the needs of the client.  The intensity and duration of the treatment is based on individual needs.

  • 94% of adolescents and parents surveyed reported positive lifestyle changes for the adolescent.
  • 97% of adolescents and parents surveyed reported adolescent intended to completed school or complete their GED.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
We utilize several tools to monitor the success of the program.  Each client works with the counselor to develop a personalized treatment plan.  The client is instrumental in setting personal goals for treatment.  The goals are reviewed through out treatment to measure success.  At the end of treatment, clients are given another assessment that determines their level of functioning and gives a good comparison from their initial assessment.  Quarterly, the clients self-report in an anonymous survey several outcome measures.  The outcome measures are reported to United Way of Norman quarterly with an annual report which compiles all of the information.  NAIC also provides an anonymous satisfaction survey at the end of treatment for which the results are compiled and tabulated by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health.  NAIC also follows up 45 days after discharge to see how the client is doing and if NAIC can assist with any needs. 
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
"Meagan" was a seventeen year old meth addict with significant trauma issues.  She had multiple legal issues, had dropped out of school and was not living at home.  After 5 months at NAIC, Meagan remained clean, started living at an independent living facility for adolescents, was working, going to school and working on her relationship with her parents.  Meagan has plans to attend college and does an excellent job of mentoring adolescents in her groups at NAIC.  She celebrated her 18th birthday by coming home from work and studying for a test.  She reported to her group members that this had done more to create good feelings about herself than 7 years of substance abuse had done. 
NAIC provides outpatient substance abuse and problem gambling treatment for adults ages 18 and above.  During the assessment, the counselor works with the person to develop an individualized treatment plan.  The treatment plan may include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, case management and education depending on the needs of the individual.  Counseling and education focuses on family and relationship issues, grief, anxiety, depression and trauma as well as the primary diagnoses of addiction.  The intensity and length of treatment is based on the individual needs and abilities of the client.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

NAIC services for adolescents and adults are intended to decrease use of substances of abuse and/or co-occurring disorder symptomatology, reduce alcohol / other drug related criminal activity, reduce driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs (DUI), increase level of functioning, improve educational standing, improve social connectedness, increase access to services and service capacity, and empower adolescents to maintain recovery. Substance abuse treatment services are provided to assess and address the individual needs. Frequency of services is determined by mutual agreement between the treatment professional and the client.

Last year we implemented a new walk-in process because the assessment waiting list had grown to 3 months. The new process is now matured and has proved to be very successful. The current waiting list for assessment at NAIC is no longer than three weeks (down from three months) with a median time to first group attendance (if needed) of one day from first presentation to the agency. These changes and new options in assessment and intake have also sharply reduced no-show rates which translate into more clients receiving services. The continued waiting list of three weeks even with these changes speaks of the continued high level of need for substance abuse treatment in the community

One of the biggest challenges remains funding, particularly for adolescent treatment. We continue to work on transitioning our board into a fundraising board and currently have an active fundraising committee dedicated to developing a comprehensive fundraising plan. NAIC recently added a development position so that our focus on fund development will strengthen. We continue to find that our partners need more training in understanding addiction, how it affects family systems and how it affects systems in general including the ones from which the adolescents receive services. 

Another challenge remains the law requiring Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) clients to be drug tested if the screening indicates a substance abuse problem.  There is not enough money allocated to provide this type of service which is costly and does not significantly add to the effectiveness of treatment. Agencies and the state are continuing to clarify changes to procedures and practices brought about by these legislated changes while preserving best practices in treatment of substance abuse and dependency. NAIC implemented a change in this particular process to include a therapist’s recommendation for further assessment.

NAIC became a United Way partner in 1973. We partner with many other agencies and entities in order to provide the most effective services. The Department of Human Services, Office of Juvenile Affairs, City of Norman, Cleveland and McClain Counties District Attorney’s office, The University of Oklahoma, Parents Helping Parents and Cleveland and McClain Counties Health Departments are a few of our partners.  

In 1975, the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services contracted with NAIC as the first state-funded out-patient treatment center in the state of Oklahoma. Today NAIC is supported through the United Way of Norman, contracts, grants, foundations, individual gifts, private insurance, Medicaid and fees for services.   In 1996, NAIC relocated to a spacious 2-story building at 215 W. Linn Street, Norman, Oklahoma. The purchase of this building was made possible through grants from The Sarkeys Foundation, The Kerr Foundation, The Mabee Foundation and The McCasland Foundation.
