CREOKS Health Services has transitioned many in-clinic services and resources to electronic options to assist in social distancing and continuity of care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CREOKS has expanded its electronic services so clients can continue to receive needed services and resources while in the safety of their own home. The organization provides confidential outpatient behavioral health services and medication management.

Without these electronic options, children and adolescents who regularly receive services at school would have seen a lapse of care while schools are closed. Now, through video conferencing and telehealth, it is possible for clients of all ages to continue receiving regular care and timely medication refills.

CREOKS has already distributed over 200 tablets to clients who have no electronic devices. In addition, they are bridging the gap through the use of myStrength’s web and mobile tools that supports personal goals and well-being.

It has added resources for managing the heightened stress and concern brought on by COVID-19. Access to the program is provided free to clients and staff and will help manage stress, offer tips for parenting challenges and support for emotional health.

CREOKS has 23 clinics across Oklahoma. They are certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and nationally accredited by CARF.
