The Watershed does not provide treatment services in Alaska, but has treated many Alaska residents at our Florida and Texas facilities.
The State of Alaska’s remote location has helped to facilitate a lower-than-average drug abuse and drug trafficking statistic over the past several decades. The need to import controlled substances from such great distances has led to higher price points for illegal drugs. This inflated price has simply made it difficult for many residents of the state to maintain their drug addiction; however, drug addiction does exist.
Though drug abuse is not prevalent in the State of Alaska, unfortunately the same cannot be said for alcohol abuse. This area has one of the highest percentages of alcohol addiction in the United States. Despite Alaska’s geographical separation from the rest of the United States, they are well-connected in terms of rehabilitation programs. There are several excellent outpatient and residential rehab facilities that provide assistance to addicted adults and adolescents. Alaska addiction treatment facilities are located in major cities such as Anchorage, Juno, and Nome.
Individuals suffering from addiction are unlikely to admit they have a problem voluntarily. The majority of addicts do not seek help on their own until a friend or family member intervenes on their behalf, brings their addiction to light, and helps the addicted individual see the need for rehabilitation. If the individual makes the decision to end their addiction, it is strongly recommended that individuals undergo a medically supervised detox treatment conducted by specialized medical and psychiatric professionals before the treatment for the actual addiction starts. Since alcohol is physically addictive, it is important for an individual wishing to end their addiction to do so under proper medical supervision in order to prevent dangerous health repercussions.
