Alaska Crack Cocaine Treatment & Detoxification

Although crack cocaine has not been a major issue within the state of Alaska, it can still be found in the larger communities through out the state. Crack cocaine use has struck social and ethnic groups within the state and has made some impact across the board. Given the remote location of some of these communities, the drug can still found and is used. Treatment and support for crack cocaine addiction in the state of Alaska is not as prominent as it would be in other states. A person will find various forms of help within the larger communities, but through out the smaller communities, it is primarily the community itself that is providing the support.

The distribution of crack cocaine in the state of Alaska does not happen very easily, cocaine will typically be ran up the coast through Canada in most cases, but either way it finds its way into the state.

This use with pregnant woman was the shown to be the same throughout the rest of the states. Many side effects were found when mothers were using crack cocaine while carrying their child.

Bio

Crack cocaine use in Alaska among pregnant woman has remained at less then 1% since the early 1990’s. This may not show a huge epidemic within the state, but the risk to the health of the mother and child are very great.

The state does see a huge economic hit with these drug related issues, having reported half a billion dollars a year in medical costs and three quarters of a million in educational and health care from the child’s birth to the age of 18.&

The most successful action to solve this is drug prevention and rehabilitation; seek the right help to beat the problem. If you can catch it before it starts you will be saving your self years of hurt and pain.
