Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime (TASC) provides a safe and secure environment for healthy living through the reduction of substance abuse and promotion of mental health, for the betterment of the whole person and our entire community at large.
Lending a Helping Hand to Those on the Road to Recovery
TASC provides quality, professional and ethical substance abuse prevention and mental health assistance, as well as outpatient treatment services. They employ a number of Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselors as well as Licensed Professional Counselors. These individuals craft custom and confidential treatment options, tailored to the needs of the client.
Who We Help
TASC provides services for all residents in and around Osage County. However, nearly all services are provided for free to Osage members and with a preference for Osage members. TASC does accept SoonerCare, so Osages and other members of the community with this coverage can use it towards the program. If a non-Osage does not have SoonerCare, our fee schedule can be found here. TASC believes a drug-free and mentally healthy population is beneficial for Osages and non-Osages together, as members of the same community.
- Substance Abuse Therapy
A drug and/or alcohol assessment is taken of the client using impartial and proven testing methods. Based on these confidential results, the counselor will develop a custom treatment plan that could include individual, group, and/or family counseling. TASC does not provide detox treatment. However, the results could recommend admittance to the Osage Nation Primary Residential Treatment Center or a referral to another rehabilitation facility. TASC is dedicated to work with the client, in a circle of trust and care, for as long as it takes to address the problems they face.
- Mental Health Therapy
An assessment is taken of the client using impartial and proven testing methods.

TASC is dedicated to work with the client, in a circle of trust and care, for as long as it takes to address the problems they face.
- Youth Services
TASC provides substance abuse therapy for youth starting at age 12. They also provide mental health therapy for youth starting at age 4. Largely the same procedures and focus on confidentiality and trust are used for Youth Services as used for adults, but custom designed and appropriate for the age of the client.
- Anger Management
For both youths and adults, this program utilizes an educational curriculum to work with the client on stress management, coping skills, and healthy communication. The counselor will develop a custom treatment plan that may include individual, group, and/or family counseling.
- Grief Group
For both youths and adults, these group sessions are led by a counselor to help individuals through the difficult time after the loss of a loved one. Like all TASC services, these groups meet in a sincere and caring setting and with complete confidentiality.
- Life Skills for Youth
The youth of today face a very different world from their parents. In these private group sessions led by a counselor, the youth will bring up and discuss the challenges they are facing. The topics potentially covered are endless based on the needs of the group. The sessions will provide safe, healthy and intelligent responses to young adults living and thriving in the 21st century.
- Drug Court
TASC contracts with local court systems to provide an opportunity for offenders to participate in a treatment program versus being incarcerated. Our expertise in drug treatment and mental health is put to good use keeping Osage County citizens out of prison and with their families.
