Drug Endangered Children


Who are drug endangered children?

The National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children defines drug endangered children as children "who are at risk of suffering physical or emotional harm as a result of drug use, possession, manufacturing, cultivation, and distribution."  


What is OBN's role in protecting drug endangered children?

Established in 2011, the Oklahoma Drug Endangered Children (ODEC) is a nationally-recognized and certified outreach program based on the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children Model. The purpose of the program is to reduce child abuse and neglect related to drug abuse. Research suggests children who live in homes where others are abusing drugs are more likely to suffer from abuse and neglect. OBN works with other law enforcement, social service providers, medical professionals, legal professionals, and members of the nonprofit community to advance evidence-based strategies in working with children exposed to drugs.
