Alaska Resources

Alaska offers Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal programs to the residents living in the state. There is currently an ongoing battle against addiction throughout the state and in order to combat this, changes are being made throughout the state.

There are not enough treatment beds currently provided throughout the state of Alaska and due to this, it is causing an uprising on what is needed to be done for those battling addiction in the area. Due to this, many Anchorage officials are coming together to raise more awareness and funds to open up new beds and clinics that can provide the help that is needed. With an increase in taxes, they are looking to solve many of the drug use issues in the state.

The resources below provide more information for those searching for help to battle their addiction. These resources provide help for those with medicare, Medicaid and medi-cal services, not those with private insurance plans.
