Alaska Drug Rehab Centers

Alaska has been having a continuous battle with substance abuse of several different types.  While many substances, both illicit and otherwise have been large issues in Alaska, alcohol is the largest problem.  According to an article from newsminer.com, “Alcohol is the “primary abused substance” in Alaska and contributes to many deaths, especially on rural areas.”  Alcohol can be one of the most dangerous types of substances to be abused.

The article also states that there is quite a lot of alcohol bootlegging taking place in Alaska, which further compounds the problem being that it is not being regulated like commercial alcohol.  Alcohol can already be a dangerous substance as it is, but when home-brewed it can be even more potent and hellacious.  Alcohol can be one of the most dangerous substances to go through withdrawal from as well.  Not only does it produce very severe withdrawal symptoms such as convulsions, but when not detoxed properly, it is one of the few substances that can be deadly.  This is why it is so critical for individuals with heavy dependencies to alcohol to seek addiction detox and treatment from an Alaska rehab center. 

Alcohol is not the Only Problem in Alaska

Although alcohol is the largest substance problem in Alaska, there are drugs that are quite prominent issues as well.  Meth has quite a presence in Alaska, but bigger than that is the massive spread of opiate abuse.  Alaska has made quite laborious efforts to attempt to curb the issue of prescription painkillers in the state.  Unfortunately, organizations that are working to handle this problem are being met with large amounts of opposition.  Organizations like the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), have been hitting barriers constantly.  In fact, the DEA has even retreated from its war on opioids due largely in part to increased bureaucracy according to an article from Alaska Dispatch News.  Between administrative demands and the pill companies fighting back, the DEA has reached a very tough spot in their battle to decrease the amount of individuals dying from these highly addictive drugs. 

Even with the opposition and backing off to some degree, the DEA is still working to do the best they can in the situation.  While cracking down upon the manufacturers and medical staff facilitating the distribution of these drugs is important, there also needs to be more focus on helping the individuals who are struggling.  There are people who need to be gotten into Alaska rehab centers as soon as possible.  These rehab centers are ready and willing to help these people get clean and sober.  Getting the individuals who are already struggling into treatment is another major part of beginning to lower the death rate from these substances. 

When addiction has gone too far, it is important that a struggling individual attend addiction treatment.  Addiction is a very progressive disease, and is likely to only get worse as it continues.  There are many different treatment centers in Alaska, which can make it difficult to sort through them and find the right one.  An important factor to consider is whether the treatment center will tailor a program specific to the individual, because this is much more successful than a one size fits all approach.  When searching for an addiction rehab center, be sure to keep this in mind.
