There are many circumstances where someone may be addicted to drugs prior to contracting HIV/AIDS. Intravenous drug use is the second most common way for someone to get the disease. Anyone struggling with drug addiction and a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS can reach out to local drug rehabilitation services in the state of Alaska. There will be some treatment programs that are equipped to help patients with the disease, as this may require more medication management and medical supervision. Inpatient and outpatient drug treatment programs operate in the larger cities and communities, and there will not necessarily be the proper help within smaller remoter areas of the state. Persons with drug addiction and HIV/AIDS should seek out help right away. Drug problems impact many people in the state, but with the right help, an addict can overcome his or her addiction.
