Alaska Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers and Programs

malaska

An increasing number of Alaskan alcohol and drug treatment facilities are reporting higher incidences of marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine use. This is extremely problematic, especially as it concerns cocaine and methamphetamine. The two drugs are quite addictive and getting clean can be quite difficult. Drug use and addiction can cause serious problems for those addicted, their family and consequently, the state of Alaska. To combat the rising number of drug use, Alaska drug abuse rehabilitation centers are working overtime to treat individuals in their care.

Drug enforcement agencies in the state are also working hard to get a handle on the problem through various measures of prevention. There are number of initiatives and programs in place to do just that. Alaskan drug rehabilitation centers work to combat the problem by treating those who either voluntarily or involuntarily seek help.

Alcohol and drug addiction in Alaska has proven to be a real problem and threat to the state. Alaska ranks in the top 10 in the country for the following categories, ‘Reported Use of Illicit Drugs in the Past Month’ for those over 12 and 26 years and older, ‘Marijuana Use’ in all age groups and the ‘Perception That Marijuana is Not Harmful’ for age groups 12 and older, 12-17 and 26 years and older,. ‘Dependence on Illicit Drugs in the Past Year’ for the 12 years and older group and those 12-17 and the ‘Use of Pain Relievers Not For Their Intended Purpose’ for the 26 + age group, also ranks amongst the top states in America

The national survey of substance-abuse treatment centers found that just three years ago there were 70 alcohol and drug treatment facilities in Alaska. More than half of these were non-profit but private. A minority of Alaskan drug rehab centers are for-profit and private. Thirteen alcohol and drug abuse centers in Alaska are ran by tribal governments and ten treat American Indians in their languages.

Though drug use in Alaska continues to pose a risk to a certain part of the population, the number of drug treatment facilities in Alaska has declined. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the treatment is any less effective. There are just fewer facilities. Many of the centers that closed were small, non-for-profit centers.

Most of the Alaska alcohol and drug treatment centers receive some type of supplemental funds from the government. These monies come from local, county, state and federal levels. This helps ensure that those that need or require drug rehabilitation in Alaska are able to receive it.

One area of needed improvement as it concerns Alaskan drug rehabilitation, involves the treatment of those that need help with alcohol and drug addiction and aren’t getting it.. The percentage of Alaskans who need help with drug addiction but do not receive it, is amongst the highest in the United States for those 12 and older. It appears that alcoholism is treated much more readily. The number of individuals that need help with alcohol addiction in Alaska but do not receive treatment is either at or below the national averages.
