Abstinence Education

The Office of Strong Family Development (OSFD) offers abstinence education and training for youth and family members. Abstinence education is offered to adolescents in local junior high and high schools, as well as through numerous youth development groups operating in South central Oklahoma. Abstinence remains the only 100% effective method of birth control and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
