Review by Contributors


Reaching 50 years of service in 2018, Roadback Inc., in Lawtown, Okla., provides treatment to individuals struggling with substance use disorder. Long-term residential care, along with standard and intensive outpatient programs (IOP, are available. The nonprofit organization is among the only 19 of 191 (9.9 percent) rehab facilities in Oklahoma to provide outpatient-based detox services, and just 29 percent of rehab facilities nationwide to maintain CARF certification.


Drug and alcohol assessments to determine the level of care needed are available by walk-in and appointment at Roadback. According to the facility’s official Facebook page, a 45- to 90-day residential program provides 26 hours of treatment services per week.

The federal directory of treatment facilities indicated that Roadback accepts clients who are in an opioid replacement medication program, also listing several treatment modalities provided. These include motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and the Matrix Model, which involves 12-step participation, random drug testing, and emphasis on relapse prevention preparation.

Roadback also offers specialized DUI assessments and education, couples counseling, and classes in anger management, parenting, and wellness. The organization is among Oklahoma’s 27.2 percent of substance abuse rehab facilities to provide treatment for gambling disorders.


While there is no information available regarding Roadback Inc.’s staff credentials at the time of this writing, the three individuals polled to date by provide an array of opinions, awarding two, four, and five out of five stars, respectively, for the staff’s level of training and experience.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. However, a 2015 Lawton Constitution newspaper story reported a capacity of 10 beds at the men’s residence and 20 at the women’s. Two alumni and one loved one polled by rated the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep between three and five stars, and gave two to five stars for exercise and leisure activities.


Feedback from eight alumni polled by at the time of this writing was split five to three, critical-to-favorable. While positive reviewers represented Roadback treatment as effective and staff as caring, a greater number of former clients depicted a disorganized facility with overly strict standards. "I took tools home I didnt use before," one alum wrote, while another alumni described the facility as "bogus", "dysfunctional", and "horrible."

On Google, two written reviews for Roadback each granted just one out of five stars, while a single five-star rating provided no further commentary.[1] By contrast, feedback on the facility’s official Facebook page, which its staff may monitor was unanimously positive. Reviewers expressed gratitude for staff who were committed, caring, and effective.[2]


Feedback on from two relatives for Roadback reflected contrasting opinions. One concurred with alumni complaints of unprofessionalism and punitive practices, while the other recommended that the program be expanded, highlighted the staff’s positive response to clients, and gave four-star ratings for the facility's counseling options and discharge planning.


Roadback, Inc., in Lawton is a United Way partner. A sliding fee scale is provided, and both private insurance and Medicaid are accepted, according to the federal directory of facilities.

I worked for Road Back for the women and men detox and rehab mostly nights and overnights. I stayed in the house in the picture you see under construction I was to be the house mother... I helped get the room and bathroom get ready...My stuff was still there when a my supervisor came to tell me I had to get out right then and there...The director didn't even call me.. The supervisor then is no longer there from stealing I was accused of offering pills to a client. That was my job at the center...I too was a client at someplace else.They were upset.. I had great plans for all individual...More than one group, going to celebrate recovery take suggestions.... You see it takes one that's been there in every way possible.Having a family member in prison because of 2 pts of thc in his system used him as an example for drug court. I turned things around for the future drug court clients with the Senator of Oklahoma, I supported others going to meetings, talking one on one. I have college medical and work under my belt ...I also had college psychology one subject from deploma. RoadBack didn't know this education. To understand one you have to be one.


Their woman’s sober living home in Lawton is a joke. The house mother can accuse anyone of anything she wants but when someone complains about her nothing is done.

Horrible place! Only two hours of group and rest no structure. Clients are made to mow and pull weeds in 100 plus heat. If you happen to fall ill while there, they kuck you out on the street.


My son is at this facility and they are not helping with his sobriety. They have taken away everyones priveleges because of certain individuals behavior, which is messing with my sons sobriety. They practice mass punishment. There is no way to complain to higher because the staff at the facility makes all the decisions, which are wrong. If anyone reads this and can contact me in how to make my complaints known email me back. This is not a good facility for sobriety.


Dysfunctional program, questionable staff, no resident respect or concern. Director is very unprofessional and found a serious recovery issue humorous. This program is a joke so if you are serious about your recovery look for another facility.

Bogus program. The right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing. It\'s all about how much money they can make from people that are already hurting.
