Finding a successful alcohol treatment facility is crucial when lives are at stake. We have trained counselors standing by to answer your questions at (877) 340-3602.

Getting one's life back on track should be the number one priority. With alcohol, there are so many different side effects associated with drinking...from  the sublime to the extreme. There are the physical manifestations from over indulgence every once in a while to a white-collar worker not able to get through the day with out surreptitiously imbibing all the way to the chronic user who can not live with it. Teens and pre-teens in greater numbers are testing the drug invested waters with inebriation as their first gradient step. News stories about college dorms time and time again report initiating type "drinking games" with fatal results.

To do nothing, is the worst thing you can do. We are standing by to take your call. We're here to help.


It's time to take your life back.

Alaska State Climate

The Office of Applied Studies from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) reports for the state of Alaska the following statistics:

Est. Numbers in Thousands, Annual Averages Based on 2005-06

Alcohol Total
12 or older
Age Group
12-17 18-25 26 or Older
Past Month use 276 10 43 223
Binge use 113 7 27 80
Perception of great risk of drinking 5 or more drinks

Underage drinking cost the citizens of Alaska $317 million in 2005. These costs include medical care, work loss, and pain and suffering associated with the multiple problems resulting from the use of alcohol by youth. This translates to a cost of $3,944 per year for each youth in the State. Alaska ranks 2nd highest among the 50 states for the cost per youth of underage drinking.

Excluding pain and suffering from these costs, the direct costs of underage drinking incurred through medical care and loss of work cost Alaska $89 million each year. Youth violence and traffic crashes attributable to alcohol use by underage youth in Alaska represent the largest costs for the State. However, a host of other problems contribute substantially to the overall cost. Among teen mothers, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) alone costs Alaska $4.6 million.

Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence and are two and a half times more likely to become abusers of alcohol than those who begin drinking at age 21. In 2003, 366 youth 12- 20 years old were admitted for alcohol treatment in Alaska, accounting for 11% of all treatment admissions for alcohol abuse in the State.

Damage to Alaska

In the State of Alaska, the effects of drug and alcohol abuse goes way past the the damage done to the addicts themselves. In terms of time lost on the job, to the health system inundated by illness and overdoses to communities harmed by the crime rate caused by addicts looking to steal anything in order to get their next fix, to families living a nightmare as they watch helplessly as their loved one goes further down the chutes. The rollercoaster of emotions, concern and anger seems like a never ending ride the abuser puts his friends and family through. Failures in the past with drug rehab centers further numb the addict to any hope of a future without drugs. It truly can appear hopeless. For more information on a real solution for alcohol abuse, call (877) 340-3602.


Should an Alcohol Treatment Center be Close to Home?

Search for alcohol treatment programAlcohol addiction and abuse typically involves habitual routines in the environmental scope of the individual, i.e. the locations of their alcohol use and the people they associate with in the activities of drinking, etc. Alcohol addiction is not just alcohol use, it revolves around people and things in their immediate environment which help to trigger the addictive behavior. The abuser's location and routines of alcohol use further trigger their desire to drink. It is the constant and seemingly unstoppable alcohol use and the hopelessness of day to day existence which perpetuates the problem and inhibits the native desire to stop ruining their life through the use of alcohol.

The above factor should not be over looked when considering a treatment center location. The first two weeks of treatment are always the most difficult. In addition to what has been covered above, a more basic factor is this, people are creatures of habit. Even overwhelmingly positive and beneficial changes in life, such as the birth of a child or a new job do not guarantee the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities such as, drinking, their buddies they drank with and other associated activities. Factually this is the normal reactive auto response of most human beings - to do what they are familiar with - good or bad. It is not really that they yearn for these things, it is just all that they have known for some time. If the abuser is close to home when overwhelming feelings manifest themselves, then there is a good chance he or she will leave and get back to what they know, drinking, as it is not very far away . Due to these factors, attending an alcohol treatment program close to home is seldom the correct option for chronic alcohol abusers. It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from their former association with bars, the cabinet where the alcohol was kept, the neighborhood liquor store, etc. All these triggers make the task of sobriety seem insurmountable to the chronic alcohol abuser as these triggers continuously stimulate a reminder of their past addictive behaviors.

For individuals with a severe drug or alcohol addiction problem in the state of Alaska, choosing a long term inpatient treatment program is another key to a successful outcome.

By providing a new, safe trigger free environment, distanced from past negative associations and surroundings for an extended period of time, the chance for success increases dramatically.

Our alcohol rehab program provides people with positive circumstances to increase their chances for a successful recovery. The vast majority of students entering our program, around (80%), are from out of state or from other countries.
