ABOUT ARMY SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM (ASAP) — FORT WAINWRIGHT

Located on the Fort Wainwright Army post in Fairbanks, Alaska, ASAP (Army Substance Abuse Program) provides addiction education, outpatient treatment, and inpatient referrals to active soldiers and Army civilian corps members. The facility’s website does not specify if referrals to detox can be made, but does note that the center can provide links to medical resources.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Appointments can be set up online or over the phone. According to its official description, the program’s main priorities are prevention and treatment, but it also liaises and consults with unit commanders, and provides referrals to civilian substance abuse resources.

The facility evaluates individuals through a comprehensive assessment and coordinates the appropriate level of care. If residential treatment is necessary, clients are referred to an inpatient program at one of the Army’s medical centers. The ASAP also offers three tracks of follow-up care, plus an educational program, but does not give details about the precise nature of treatment.

The Army’s behavioral health department offers individual counseling, therapy, pharmacotherapy, and treatment for selected family members of soldiers, where necessary, so it’s likely that the ASAP offers a similar roster of services.

Referrals are provided to local AA and NA meetings, social work services, mental health services, medical evaluations, and other medical and community resources, as appropriate.

The Army has the right to administer drug and alcohol tests and discharge soldiers who continually abuse substances.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Review coverage for this facility is very scarce. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave positive feedback, indicating that they would recommend the program and giving it five stars for its treatment for co-occurring disorders and its admin and discharge practices, and four stars for its overall effectiveness and holistic and counseling options. They were less impressed by the exercise options and the family participation, each of which they rated three out of five stars. The reviewer wrote anonymously: “Employees were great. Length of program was a weakness. Life changing experience.”
