Latest Reviews of Rehabs in Alaska
Class schedules, off campus AA & NA meetings. Affordable and friendly staff. Getting me hooked up with a longer residential treatment centers. I refused outpatient care. I loved the councilor's, they are %100 team work.
strength:Friendly staff, nice location weakness:Not many extracurricular activities or accountability I would not work here again.
Didn't even want to leave after a couple of months of being there. The community is so close together in fighting addiction and the 12 step meetings make you feel at home. Wish I would've stayed the whole recommended duration. The staff is amazing as well, if you have any problems they have no problem doing whatever it takes to help you to give you the best chance you can get

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.
