Within the United States, addicts can access grant-funded programs such as access to a recovery program, which is funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the U.S. Department of Health. This grant program can provide a voucher for a successful applicant in Alaska, who is struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction. The access to recovery vouchers will allow them to choose from the various drug treatment services that operate through access to the recovery programs. Instead of being told the addict has to go to one set program; they can make a choice with this voucher. Throughout Alaska are many remote locations and communities where people still struggle with alcohol addiction or a substance abuse problem. A successful applicant can apply for the access to recovery voucher through access to recovery service coordinators, who will usually be found through local mental health or public health services.
Here is a list that will help you find the different drug & alcohol treatment services with Access to Recovery Voucher Programs in Alaska. The list can be incomplete so please do not hesitate to contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.
