According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association, Substance abuse disorders disproportionately affect minority populations, particularly the American Indian and Alaskan Native population. Further only 55 percent of American Indians or Alaskan Natives rely on the federally funded Indian Health Services or tribally operated clinics/hospitals for any health care, meaning a large portion of the population relies on other publicly or privately funded facilities. Success rates among these types of facilities varies greatly. And many people seek help outside the state of Alaska as other types of treatment of all financial levels can be more readily available.
When you start actively looking for a drug rehab program center, either in Alaska or elsewhere, you discover that there are different types of drug and alcohol rehabilitation program centers including detoxification, outpatient counseling, short-term inpatient rehabilitation (30-day programs) and long-term residential drug rehab program centers (up to and longer than 60 day programs). Locating a program that is right for your specific needs should be high on your list of requirements. Be certain to make a list of questions that you need answered before making your decision to say within the state of Alaska for rehabilitation or you choose to seek treatment outside the state. Insurance plans vary for each individual policy but all drug and alcohol rehabilitation program center counselors will be able to guide you to a center that accepts your personal insurance and tell you of any out of pocket expenses that you may be required to pay. Private pay programs are also available and some state funded programs.
Making the decision to enter treatment is a great first step towards recovery. We are here to help you.
