TULSA — Officials with the Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma celebrated today as the CALM Center renovations were unveiled along with a ribbon cutting and open house celebration.

Officials say that after a two-year capital campaign, that raised $1.3 million, the renovation has been completed.

Officials say the CALM (Child and Adolescent Life Management) Center has provided crisis support, since 2008, for over 4,000 Oklahoma youth, ages 10-17, and their families.

The CALM Center is the only youth crisis stabilization center in eastern Oklahoma.

“The support we received from individuals, businesses and especially Foundations was critical in making the renovation possible,” CEO and Executive Director Dr. Bryan Blankenship, said. “Without our donors, this wouldn’t have happened.”

Officials say that no one is ever denied services based on income and admission is available day and night, seven days a week.

“For years, The CALM Center has been providing care to teens and families without regard to their ability to pay,” says Matthew Crum, CALM Center Director. “This renovation demonstrates how dedicated the caring citizens of Green Country are to maintaining a safe, clean environment for children to continue receiving this needed aid.”
