Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in Alaska
When looking for an Alaska interventionist as well as creating a successful treatment plan, it is crucial to know and understand how different drugs effect every state. Heroin has become a popular drug in the state, and all across the country, because it is cheap and effective. However, heroin has a huge overdose rate (which is also being seen nationwide). Alcohol also takes its toll on the northern state. Alaska’s alcohol consumption rate and binge drinking rate are through the roof.
Alaska is an isolated state and due to it being such, it makes drug-trafficking very easy. Also due to isolation, depression and suicide rates is one of the highest in the United States. This is why a professional interventionist is needed for substance abuse cases in states such as Alaska. Our trained professional interventionists are here to help your family reach its overall goal: to help your loved one get sober and on the road to a substance-free life.
