Oxycontin Detox & Treatment in Alaska

We would not suspect drug addiction when it comes to Alaska; when people talk to Oxycontin or painkiller addiction, it is often associated with celebrities, artists and sport athletes. However while they have their share of issues, Oxycontin addiction is a major problem in lower social classes as well. While the amount of individuals abusing pain relievers such as Oxycontin, Vicodin, Percocet and other painkiller variants is much less in Alaska then in other states, it is still an issue amongst the people of Anchorage, Juno and other Alaska cities. More importantly, finding help for an Oxycontin addiction in Alaska can be quite difficult. Alaska does not have much in Oxycontin treatment programs or assistance groups, thus creating a difficult situation when it comes time to help someone abusing medication such as Oxycontin or Vicodin.

Living in Juneau or Anchorage, you may possibly get some help due to the size of the city, although the options are limited. However, Anchorage or Juno aside, you will probably struggle to find help for a friend, a family member or yourself if there is a struggle with Oxycontin or any other pain killer variant. Alaskan help organizations' are very limited and it can be hard to find the appropriate Oxycontin treatment program.

Oxycodone is a problem for some people in Alaska, especially through the brand OxyContin. It has been ever since it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1995, with it being put on the market in 1996; a lot more people have taken OxyContin. Most people in Alaska that use it actually need it to alleviate the pain, but the danger is in the addictive nature of this drug.

To show the extent of the problem, here is an example of how OxyContin is taking over. A woman in Wasilla, Alaska was caught with OxyContin; she was using and dealing with the prescription drug. It was also said that this Alaska woman had turned to OxyContin instead of manufacturing methamphetamine. Wasilla is known for its meth problem, but it is now seen that more and more people are involved with OxyContin. For some people in Alaska, OxyContin became the drug of choice. There was actually a study showing that OxyContin is becoming the number one choice for painkillers addicts.

There were many drug busts performed by the Alaska Bureau of Alcohol and Drug Enforcement. More and more people are either abusing or dealing OxyContin; this is pretty serious since those activities can lead to deaths (overdose, gang-related, etc.)
