Alaska State Funded Rehab Centers (54)

Alaska State-funded Treatment Centers

Alaska state-funded rehabs serve residents of the immediate community who need addiction treatment but lack the financial ability to pay the fees. While some states run their drug and alcohol rehab programs, the state of Alaska provides funding for rehab programs to accept public insurance like Medicaid and funding like Access to Recovery.

In Alaska, the state funded treatment program is designed to serve the most acutely addicted, meaning priority is given to those who represent the highest risk. Some of these programs are exclusively state-funded, and others may be privately owned but use the funding to fulfill the need for low- to no-cost rehab.

More than 10 percent of Alaska residents have a substance use disorder, yet nearly two-thirds never seek treatment, mainly because they lack the financial resources to pay for it.
Even with the implementation of Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) under the ACA (Affordable Care Act), many Alaskans do not have adequate health insurance. With most Alaskans who need rehab unable to pay or use private insurance, the programs that accept state funding are quickly overburdened.

The state of Alaska continues to expand its funding for programs that are designed to provide comprehensive recovery services and support, based on individual need.

Some of the levels of care provided by state-funded rehab services include the following:

Although Alaska offers state funding for addiction rehab and treatment on many levels, the large population of residents who need rehab create long waits for things like beds in withdrawal management centers. Also, many programs that receive state funding can provide services to residents within a certain mileage radius, town or village.

In the event that there are no state-funded withdrawal management or residential treatment beds available, Alaska relies heavily on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for long-term retention in a treatment program.

Since there is no way for the state to fund the entire population of Alaskans who need, and cannot afford to pay for, rehab, the state provides funding to private rehabs to help fill the need. In Alaska, 73 percent of the rehab programs available receive some state funding for services to residents.

As the opioid and meth epidemic continue to ravage the state of Alaska, state-funded programs remain in high demand by the residents who lack sufficient funds and health insurance.
It is important to prepare for treatment at various levels with the potential of long waits, crowded facilities and limited service abilities. The best way to be prepared is to contact the rehab directly and get information on availability and services restrictions.

State-funded rehabs in Alaska have saved thousands of lives, and the state continues to work to fund more rehab services each year.
