Rehabilitation & Detox Centers for Street Drugs Abuse in Alaska

Commonly Abused Illicit Drugs in Alaska

Within the state of Alaska, one of the largest contributing factors to many of the violent crimes such as sexual assault, domestic violence, and homicide, is the abuse of drugs and alcohol. It has been estimated that over 30% of the violent crimes within the state is because of alcoholism or drug abuse, and the economic cost is well over three billion dollars yearly. Because of the lack of law enforcement coverage throughout the state in remote areas, Alaska has always been a popular location to traffic illicit drugs, which eventually flow to other parts of the US. The many commonly abused drugs within Alaska include alcohol, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and prescription drugs. One of the bigger epidemics within the state is the regular use of fentanyl and carfentanil, which are both dangerous opioids. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in Alaska can treat these types of addictions. The treatment process should start with a detox program, followed by either inpatient or outpatient therapy and counseling.

Other commonly abused drugs could also include: PCP, GHB, Ecstasy, LSD, Mescaline and Ketamine.
