ABOUT BARTLETT REGIONAL HOSPITAL – RAINFOREST RECOVERY CENTER

Rainforest Recovery Center (RRC), a specialized unit of Bartlett Regional Hospital, provides a continuum of substance abuse treatment services to the residents of Juneau, Alaska and surrounding communities. The center provides on-site detoxification, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and aftercare services. Additionally, RCC hosts a number of support groups for individuals who are in recovery, as well as for family members of clients and program alumni.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, clients receive a comprehensive assessment that enables staff to design an individualized treatment program. If necessary, a client may be admitted to the hospital’s Emergency Department for medically assisted detox. From there, they may opt for residential or outpatient treatment, the latter of which consists of three to 19 hours of therapy a week, depending upon the individual’s needs.

All care offered at RCC draws upon 12-step principles and incorporates individual, group, and family therapy. The residential program has a strong educational component, and outpatient care may include interventions, urine drug screenings, and referrals to external services.

Program graduates may access aftercare, which includes counseling and focuses on self-monitoring and the development of sober life skills. Support groups hosted by RCC include a relapse prevention group, gender-specific support groups, and weekend programming for families.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to Bartlett Regional Hospital’s website, Rainforest Recovery Center employs a number of psychiatrists who specialize in chemical dependency.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

RCC can accommodate up to 16 residents at a time. Potential clients can assume, based on its hospital setting, that the center offers a clinical recovery environment. Alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com provided average scores for accommodations, and despite limited feedback, one alum suggested that bed availability did not meet the community’s needs.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni reviews range from three to five stars. Kathryne, the sole five-star reviewer, found treatment to be effective and considerate of her mental health issues. She wrote: “I suffer from anxiety so it was a very difficult choice for me to go to treatment. They made it very easy and with very little stress. I can't thank them enough!”

However, Casey, also an alum polled by Rehabs.com, felt that RCC was his only option. He awarded his treatment effectiveness three stars, but provided this mediocre assessment: “Only 1 in town. Had a outpatient program that was usefully. Not enough beds. Felt detached.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

A review submitted to Rehabs.com by a loved one was more critical. This anonymous survey respondent gave the facility only one star and referenced multiple friends who had “come and gone” and were “still messed up.” However, this critique may have more to do with generally limited resources in their community, as they added: “There isn't enough help in Juneau. When someone wants help they have to wait for months on end before a bed is available, the ones who can afford it will leave town.”

FINANCING

According to the hospital’s website, RCC accepts insurance and Medicaid. Additionally, sliding-fee scaled payment plans may be an option for individuals who qualify.

It was the only one in town. Everyone is still messed up. Many friends have come and gone. There isn't enough help in Juneau. When someone wants help they have to wait for months on end before a bed is available, the ones who can afford it will leave town.
