Free Rehabs in Alaska
If you have developed a dependence on alcohol or drugs and are seeking treatment and are without funds, there is still hope. However, for those seeking a Free Rehab in Alaska for addiction, there are many things that need to be considered. The first thing to note is the question as to where the treatment facility gets their funding.
There are primarily three different types of Free rehabs in Alaska
State Funded Rehab:These types of facilities receive some form of funding through grants or subsidies from the government at a state or county level. Often these types of treatment programs are closely connected to a court system and can have a high degree of “court mandated” clients. These types of treatment centers also may have a lengthy waiting list, especially during the winter months.
Vocational Rehab: These types of facilities receive their funding through the clients working for the treatment program. Often these programs also have a heavy Christian component in conjunction with the work element. Salvation Army and Teen Challenge are two examples of a Vocational Rehab.
Donation based rehab: These types of facilities often have the majority, if not all, or their funding provided by an individual or organization. This also may include a private rehab facility that may have a “scholarship” bed, although today scholarshipped beds are almost non-existant in private care facilities. Overall, donation based rehabs are extremely rare, unless supported fully by a connected church or organization.
It is also important to understand that, depending on the severity of the alcohol or drug abuse, someone seeking alcohol treatment may also need a medically supervised detox in Alaska prior to treatment. Sometimes finding a Free Detox in Alaska is more difficult than finding a free rehab.
Do they have Detox in a Free Rehab?
A Free Rehab may have a withdrawal component, but it almost never has a medically supervised detox, which means that medications are not prescribed to alleviate some of the discomforts involved in withdrawal. In the case that there is a medical danger in withdrawal, the treatment facility will usually refer the client to hospital first.
It is important to note, that for clients looking for a free medically supervised detox for opiates such as Heroin, Vicodin, Oxycontin or Methadone, they will probably not receive medications to alleviate the discomfort.
