Alaska Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that the state of the state in terms of drug and alcohol abuse couldn't get much worse.

Alaska routinely ranks in the top 10 states in the country for drug-related issues including:

  • Past-month illicit drug use among those in the 12+ age group and the 26+ age group
  • Past-month marijuana use in the 12+ age group, 12-to-17 age group, and the 26+ age group
  • Past-year marijuana use across all age groups
  • Least perception of risk associated with smoking marijuana once a month in the 12+ age group, the 12-to-17 age group, and the 26+ age group
  • Past-year nonmedical use of pain relievers among those over the age of 26
  • Past-year illicit drug dependence in the 12+ age group and the 12-to-17 age group

Top Drugs of Abuse in Alaska The primary problematic substance in Alaska across the board for the past decade has been alcohol. Marijuana is the second most common drug of abuse and cocaine comes in third, but alcohol is mentioned by more than 90 percent of the people who seek drug addiction treatment in Alaska.

Also, more and more common is the patient who needs help for dealing with more than one substance of abuse. About 30 percent of drug rehab patients in Alaska seek help for a dual substance abuse or addiction issue, and between 10 percent and 20 percent seek help fighting dependence upon three or more substances. In fact, less than 10 percent of Alaska's patients in addiction treatment seek help for drugs alone; more than 90 percent need treatment for alcoholism or alcohol and drug dependence.

Alaska's Rates of Drug Use and Addiction Are Among the Highest in the Country Every year, rates of drug and alcohol dependence in Alaska are higher than the national average. For example, the rates of past-year alcohol addiction among those over the age of 12, between the ages of 12 and 17, and those over the age of 26 have routinely been some of the highest in the country. It's a problem that is a concern for national leaders, state social services, and Alaskan families.

The only way to effectively deal with the problem is to get the medical and psychotherapeutic treatment necessary to break free from drug abuse and addiction to all who need it.

Fewer and Fewer Treatment Centers to Choose From

Though the need for drug addiction treatment in Alaska rises every year, the number of drug addiction treatment centers continues to drop. Of those that remain, many are overtaxed: too few beds, too few staff members, too few resources. State budgets are tightening every year and one of the first places that cuts occur is in the arena of social services. There are also fewer grants available to fund different types of treatment. In short, there's no money to fund the facilities that currently exist and even less money to build new options.

Which Drug Addiction Treatment Program Is the Best Option?

For some families in Alaska, the best option for drug rehab is to choose a program located in the lower 48. Away from the stresses and influences of home, patients have the freedom to focus on recovery and practice living a life that is drug-free in a safe and protected environment.

Contact us today at the phone number listed above and speak to an addiction treatment specialist about the types of drug treatment programs that are available to your family.

Remaining near your home city is not always helpful, as you are closer to the individuals and situations that caused the substance use in the first place. Particularly if you're considering exclusive or executive choices, there may be added advantages in treating an extended rehabilitation stay like a break and going outside Alaska. Many of the top-rated treatment programs have benefits and locations that make them have the ambiance of 4-star resorts so rehab can be uplifting as well as therapeutic.
