Premier drug treatment facility goes above and beyond during holiday season, providing needed items all across local area businesses.

Narconon Arrowhead staff make sizable donations across southeastern Oklahoma along with local fire departments.

“These donations would not be possible without the staff at Narconon Arrowhead and the many people in the community who helped us,” said DannaSue Pruett, Narconon Arrowhead Representative.

Narconon Arrowhead, a residential drug and alcohol treatment facility located in Canadian Oklahoma isn’t just saving lives from addiction. The organization participates in many humanitarian efforts every year to help communities around southeastern Oklahoma. These efforts are done especially during the holidays.

This year Narconon Arrowhead staff collected food items and put aside donations to give back to the community to help celebrate the true meaning of Christmas; goodwill.

Narconon donated several new cribs to both Eufaula and McAlester youth shelters meeting the shelter’s strict criteria and allowing them to use their own budget to better care for the families of the shelter. They also donated clothing, and food items from the Narconon Arrowhead Food Pantry.

The organization then visited The Hope House in McAlester and donated diapers, toys, clothing, infant food items, and many female hygiene and toiletry items for the women and children. These items will be distributed to the women and children of the house and will assist them in having personal care items and items that make you feel more at home and able to prepare for meetings and interviews.

However, Narconon did not stop at this, and also donated Truth About Becoming Addicted booklets, grocery gift certificates, and several boxes of food to the Deep Fork Community Action Foundation of McIntosh County. The Foundation helps to provide local food to families in McIntosh County that have been denied assistance as well as helping with prescription assistance (non-narcotic) and helping with heating bill assistance.

Narconon also provided 15 Food Baskets to the local Youth Services Department in McAlester. This has been the 4th year that the treatment facility has made donations to the group. The Youth Services Department in turn will be able to provide needy families with the baskets this holiday season.

From there Narconon rehab center reached out to the Good Samaritan Outreach Homeless Shelter for Men in the local area bringing them both food and toiletry items.

“These donations would not be possible without the staff at Narconon Arrowhead and the many people in the community who helped us,” said DannaSue Pruett, Narconon Arrowhead Representative.

Pruett and Narconon Arrowhead especially wanted to thank specific groups and people in the community for helping with the efforts. In particular, Pam Evens from Nicol’s Grocery Store in Eufaula as well as Canadian Shore’s Fire Department, Sam’s Point Fire Department and Indianola Fire Department who helped with contributions and time to make this year’s donations the best yet.

“Having the ability to work with the community through Narconon Arrowhead is an amazing part of my job. Being able to help and provide much needed donations to several area groups and seeing how much they appreciate the help, makes me realize how lucky I am to be involved with such a generous group,” adds Pruett. “I grew up in this community and being on staff at Narconon Arrowhead has been one of the most rewarding decisions of my life. The work that they do in the community and all of the donations that they are able to provide, really makes you feel like you are giving back to the area that has given me so much.”
