Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Alaska

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Detox Centers

Detox Centers in Alaska

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Information about rehab in Alaska

AK Substance Abuse Facts

Heroin and prescription drugs are among the most commonly abused substances in Alaska, according to a 2016 drug report from the Alaska State Troopers.1

Alaska has seen a huge increase in the abuse of opioids (which includes heroin and painkillers) in the past several years. Between 2013 and 2015, heroin abuse rates increased significantly from 0.7% to 1.23%.2 Heroin overdose deaths have increased every year in Alaska since 2010. In 2012, the rate of overdose deaths involving prescription painkillers was more than twice the national rate, and AK’s rate of heroin-involved overdose deaths was more than 50% higher than the national rate.3 These opioid abuse numbers are also reflected in the numbers of people in treatment for opioid addiction. In 2015, in a single-day count, 331 people in Alaska received methadone in opioid addiction treatment programs as part of their substance abuse treatment—an increase from 148 in 2012.2

Alcohol is also at the top of list of abused substances in Alaska. Between 2014 and 2015, alcohol use in the state was above the national average for adolescents (11% vs. 10.6%), and the number of adults with a diagnosable alcohol use disorder in that year also topped the national average (7.4% vs. 6.1%).2

Substance abuse in the state may be driven in part by (and may also worsen) mental health issues, specifically depression. Alaska has the second-highest suicide rate in the country, with 27.1 suicides per 100,000 residents. The national rate is 13.3 per 100,000.4

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in AK

Before you decide to get help, think about what kind of program is the best fit for you. For example, if you’ve relapsed in the past, inpatient rehab may be an optimal choice because it can provide more supervision, more intensive care, as well as some distance between you and potential relapse triggers.

Also think about whether you would rather travel out of state for treatment or stay close to home so it’s easier for your family and friends to visit and be a part of your treatment.

If you or someone you care about needs help for drug or alcohol abuse, you can call us anytime at . One of our treatment support advisors will be happy to help you locate a program either near you or in another city/state.

Where Else Can I Find Help in AK?

Cost is a concern for many people seeking addiction treatment. Many people also either aren’t insured or have limited coverage. If you’re worried about payment, ask the program about plans that let you pay off the cost of treatment over time.

Treatment centers also commonly offer sliding scale programs that will charge you a certain rate based on your income. Some even make scholarships available that cover all or a portion of the cost.

You can also see if you qualify for government-sponsored insurance plans such as Medicaid and Medicare.
