12 & 12 announced a gift of $700,000 from The Bama Companies, Inc., to support major renovations and the goals of the Transforming Recovery campaign. 12 & 12 offers life-saving recovery tools for adults suffering with addiction or co-existing mental health and substance abuse disorders to achieve individualized recoveries.
This gift pushed 12 & 12’s $8.7 million Transforming Recovery campaign over the $5 million mark. The campaign includes capital projects, major interior and exterior renovations, and the expansion of 12 & 12’s services.
Of the gift, Paula Marshall, , said, “It is with great pride and humility that we have chosen to name the Bama Commons and fund major renovations at 12 & 12 with Bama’s resources. 12 & 12 serves a vital need in our community as one of the very few adult treatment centers. Addiction to opioids and other substances is a huge problem in Oklahoma today, and without treatment our state will not ever be prosperous and grow.” She added, “Thanks to 12 & 12 for helping people in our community recover and become citizens who serve the state instead of those who detract from the growth of the state due to addiction.”
