‎In this paper‎, ‎first we introduce the notion of $\frac{1}{2}$-modular metric spaces and weak $(\alpha,\Theta)$-$\omega$-contractions in this spaces and we establish some results of best proximity points‎. ‎Finally‎, ‎as consequences of these theorems‎, ‎we derive best proximity point theorems in modular metric spaces endowed with a graph and in partially ordered metric spaces‎. ‎We present an example to illustrate the usability of these theorems‎.
