NORTH TEXAS, SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA -- Drug and alcohol addiction is an epidemic affecting millions of Americans some right here in Texoma.

The Texoma Community Center is trying to raise awareness this month.

They're sending proclamations to cities and counties throughout Texoma.

This morning Grayson County Commissioners approved making this month "Recovery Awareness Month".

They hope this declaration will get the community talking about substance abuse or mental disorders.

"There are over twenty-three million people in the united states suffering from addiction, and from mental health disorders, and we just want our communities to know, that's why we're here, is to help anybody who's seeking help from those disorders," Kristi Gourd said with Texoma Community Center.

If you're interested in speaking with someone with the Texoma Community Center their phone number is 903-957-4803.
