Drug Rehab Alaska

Drug and alcohol addiction in Alaska has risen steadily in the last three years. Individuals that are seeking help for drug or alcohol addiction in Alaska are often disappointed at the limited number of drug rehabs that offer quality residential treatment. In choosing a drug rehab in Alaska, it is important to choose a center with a consistently high rate of success in treating drug addiction. The most important goal of a quality drug rehab program in Alaska should be to support the individual by developing a personalized treatment plan that will ultimately lead them to be able to overcome their addiction. There are many different types of drug rehab facilities in Alaska that offer various treatment component options. A counselor at a drug rehab center in Alaska can explain all of the different drug treatment options such as inpatient, outpatient, long term and short term, and can help you to determine which type of program would be most beneficial for you or your loved one. It is important to contact a drug rehab center at the very first hint of the presence of a drug addiction.

The harmful effects of drug addiction can negatively impact the users mind, body, and spirit. Individuals who have an addiction to drugs tend to experience a wide array of physical effects, some that can continue to linger, long after the individual quits abusing the substance. The negative effects on the family are numerous, as the hallmark of addiction is for the user to be preoccupied with thoughts of getting and using their drug of choice. An individual cannot be fully present in a loved one's life while they are obsessing over their next "fix". Many drugs can interfere with an individual's motor skills which is the main reason that over half of the deaths in the United States that are related to automobile accidents are directly linked to the use of alcohol and various other drugs. The effects of drug addiction on society are varied, but health care costs alone toppled almost 10 billion dollars in the U.S., and local costs in Alaska are steadily increasing every year. The costs to the workplace in Alaska in terms of lost productivity are astronomical. Drug related crime in Alaska is steadily increasing which causes fear and disruptions in many of the local communities. For all of these reasons, and many more that have not been mentioned, the need for quality drug rehab centers in Alaska has never been more necessary for the treatment of drug addiction.

The large majority of people in Alaska with a drug or alcohol addiction will not be able to successfully overcome their drug addiction without the professional assistance of a drug rehabilitation program. Once a person is ready to admit that they have a problem, this is the time for loved ones to assist them in contacting a drug rehab center in order to seek out the best possible treatment option. Many times the addict will want to find a drug rehab program that is close to his home in Alaska. When an individual that suffers from a drug addiction seeks drug treatment just miles away from the environment in which they previously used drugs, this can be a recipe for failure. A person that is going through the discomfort of withdrawal in a setting that is two miles away from their drug dealer is more than likely going to consider leaving the drug rehab to seek out his drug of choice and resume the addiction. When an individual is not in a familiar setting, they are much more likely to settle into the drug rehabilitation program and commit to the process of healing from their addiction.

  • Cocaine in powder form is readily available inmost of the cities in Alaska. Crack cocaine in mostly available in major urban areas such as Anchorage. Powder cocaine usually sells for anywhere from $100-$150/gram. Crack cocaine is generally smoked and is sold in small rock quantities for about $20.
  • Various types of heroin are available in Alaska including Mexican and Colombian.
  • Marijuana is by far the most abused drug in Alaska, because of the high THC content of locally grown marijuana crops. In 2006, the mayor of Alaska signed a bill which would re-criminalize the use and possession of marijuana in the state.
  • Clandestine Meth labs used to be located throughout the rural areas of Alaska, but because of the successful seizures of many local meth labs by law enforcement, the majority of the methamphetamine supply in the state is currently being imported.
  • Club Drugs, such as ecstasy, GHB and LSD are gaining popularity in Alaska, particularly among teens and young adults that are into the rave scene.
  • The abuse and trafficking of pharmaceuticals,particularly opiates such as hydrocodone and oxycodone continues to escalate in Alaska.

Alaska Drug Information and Drug Trafficking

Cocaine is readily available in most areas of Alaska and is seen with great frequency in powder form. Crack cocaine is available in Alaska's major urban areas, such as Anchorage and Fairbanks. Powder cocaine usually sells for $100-$150/gram and is primarily ingested by snorting. Crack cocaine is sold in small rock quantities for $20 and is usually smoked.

Alaska has many different cocaine drug trafficking organizations. Some of the largest ones are predominantly Mexican and Dominican drug trafficking groups; however Eastern Europeans are also involved. East coast Albanian organized crime groups have recently begun to distribute cocaine into Alaska. Most cocaine appears to come into Alaska from the West Coast of the U.S.

Amazingly, one cocaine smuggling organization in Alaska offered to sell one kilogram of cocaine for as high as $39,000. Cocaine and other drugs are distributed throughout the State mainly from Anchorage and Fairbanks, all the way to remote fishing villages and northern rural areas.

Heroin continues to be available in Alaska. Different types of heroin are available in Alaska including Mexican, Colombian and Southeast Asian. Evidence of heroin has declined due to much of the user population now illegally acquiring and using OxyContin. Opium continues to be transshipped through Alaska from the Far East/Pacific Rim countries.

Like the rest of the United States, meth is a problem in Alaska and the state is experiencing an increase in the availability of crystal methamphetamine. Ironically, methamphetamine lab seizures are down but small toxic labs continue to be found throughout the state. The pseudoephedrine reduction method is the common manufacturing method used. Availability seems to be increasing, both from local labs and from methamphetamine mailed or shipped into the state by various methods, mostly from the Western U.S.

MDMA (methylene-dioxy-methamphetamine ), also known as Ecstasy, is a growing threat throughout Alaska. Prior to 1999, there were no reports or direct evidence of large quantities of MDMA in any form. In recent years, MDMA seizures have increased dramatically. Raves continue to occur in Alaska, with the accompanying use of Predatory Drugs found at these events. In late 2003 a female died in Anchorage, AK from an overdose of GHB. LSD remains available in the state, mostly in the university areas.

In Alaska, marijuana is the most widely abused illegal drug. Local law enforcement can only estimate the extent of marijuana abuse because less than 5% of the marijuana in Alaska is grown outdoors. This makes detection much more difficult. Recently, BC Bud marijuana from British Columbia, Canada has begun to make its way to Alaska along the Transcontinental Highway.

The diversion of various controlled substances regulated by prescription is a growing problem in Alaska. The state of Alaska is one of the top five purchasing states for five of the top twelve diverted drugs, to include Fentanyl, D-Amphetamine, Oxycodone, Methadone and Meperidine. Benzodiazepine is also widely abused. Internet purchases of controlled substances, from both domestic and international sites, are on the rise.

Additionally, DEA Regional Enforcement Teams have been put in place. This program was designed to augment existing DEA division resources by targeting drug organizations operating in the United States where there is a lack of sufficient local drug law enforcement. This Program was conceived in 1999 in response to the threat posed by drug trafficking organizations that have established networks of cells to conduct drug trafficking operations in smaller, non-traditional trafficking locations in the United States. As of January 31, 2005, there have been 27 deployments nationwide, and one deployment in the U.S. Virgin Islands, resulting in 671 arrests. There have been no RET deployments in the State of Alaska.
