Drug and Alcohol Rehab and Treatment in Juneau

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, has a population just under 100,000. Unlike every other state capital, though, there are no roads in Juneau that lead to other cities, which means residents must access Juneau via ferry. Despite this unusual way of living, though, Juneau is home to a problem familiar to people across the United States: drug and alcohol addiction. About 15% of the population struggles with some type of addiction, and the toll on the local economy and quality of life is enormous.

Marijuana is, next to alcohol, the most popular drug in Juneau. Its recent legalization in Alaska removes much of the stigma of marijuana use. It's not yet clear what effect this might have, but one thing is clear: marijuana has the potential to become every bit as addictive as other drugs. About 40% of adults in Juneau have smoked marijuana, and 5% of these users eventually become addicted.

Alcohol is the most popular drug in Juneau, with 90% of adults in the area drinking at least periodically. Like prescription drugs, many alcoholics insist that the drug's legal status makes it safe, but legal drugs can be just as dangerous as illegal ones. Prescription drugs kill more people every year than any other drug, for example. Both alcohol and prescription drugs pose serious threats to Juneau residents. Alcohol rehab and prescription drug rehab, though, can help you achieve a lifetime of sobriety and good health.

Abuse rates for cocaine and crack are falling in Juneau, but meth and heroin abuse are on the rise. These dangerous drugs subject you to the risk of abuse, drug-related violence, and serious health problems. Meth rehab, cocaine rehab, and heroin can offer you the treatment you need to get and stay sober.

Why Should I Seek Alcohol Rehab in Juneau?

It's easy to believe that everyone drinks. After all, alcohol is everywhere – church functions, school events, children's sports games. This drug, though, is anything but harmless, as anyone who's ever witnessed an alcohol-fueled fight can attest. Alcohol gives rise to countless car accidents each year, destroys relationships, derails careers, and ruins lives. And every year, it kills 88,000 people. The right alcohol detox and alcohol treatment program can help you ensure you're not next.

Alcohol's prominent role in local culture can make it tough to get and stay sober. After all, it's impossible to entirely avoid alcohol, which means you'll have to find ways to resist temptation and triggers for use in Juneau. Drug rehab offers you the skills you need to competently deal with temptation without feeling overwhelmed or defeated.

Why Should I Seek Drug Rehab in Juneau?

If you don't think you have an addiction, you need to know about denial. Addiction wreaks havoc on your brain and ability to make good judgment calls. One of the many ways it accomplishes this is via denial. Denial allows you to continue using without acknowledging that you have a problem, thus delaying treatment and allowing the addiction to gain a deeper foothold in your life. The longer you delay seeking treatment, though, the harder getting sober will become.

People who abuse drugs such as marijuana and prescription drugs are particularly vulnerable to denial. These addicts insist that their drug of choice is save, non-addictive, or a solution to a health problem. But any drug that alters your thoughts and sensations can become addictive, and a drug's legal status has nothing to do with whether you become an addict or not. Your body doesn't know what the law says! Prescription drug rehab and marijuana rehab can help you get clean and sober, while helping you understand the ways your addiction affects your life and the lives of those you love most.

You might think that users of harder street drugs readily accept the addictive nature of their drugs of choice. Even when a drug is obviously addictive, though, addicts can still latch onto denial. This fact alone should convince you of the powerful nature of denial.

It's not the drug you use that matters, but rather, how that drug affects your life. If you can't seem to stop using, you're almost certainly an addict. If you're unsure whether you're an addict or just a recreational user, check out this list of symptoms. If three or more describe you, you're probably an addict:

  • You want to quit using, but have been unsuccessful at quitting.
  • You rely on alcohol or drugs to feel “normal” or to get through daily life.
  • You have a family history of drug abuse or addiction.
  • You have a previous history of relapse.
  • You keep increasing the dosage of your drug of choice in order to get the same high a lower dose once offered.
  • You neglect family or work events, or ignore special activities you previously enjoyed to use drugs and alcohol.
  • You ignore hobbies that were once important to you to use drugs and alcohol.
  • You organize your day around drug or alcohol use.
  • You lie to yourself or to others about your drug or alcohol use.

Maybe you're overwhelmed by the cost of rehab in Juneau, but treatment is surprisingly affordable. And no amount of money is worth your life!

What Can I Expect in Rehab?

If this is the first time you've struggled with addiction, rehab can feel like a mysterious – and perhaps even frightening foreign land with its own strange culture. Every rehab facility is a bit different. Some are more akin to luxurious resorts, while others endorse a specific religious or philosophical perspective. The cost of rehab, of course, depends in part on the services offered at the facility you choose, so be sure to ask lots of questions; don't pay for services you don't want just because a facility has a good reputation.

No matter where you choose to begin your sobriety journey, most rehab facilities offer the same basic treatment protocols. At minimum, you'll gain access to:

  • A sober living environment where drugs and alcohol are not available.
  • Individual therapy sessions with a therapist who specializes in addiction and recovery.
  • Medical supervision through the drug detox process. If you have special medical needs, your doctor will also help you implement a health plan and ensure you get any medications you need.
  • Support group meetings, 12-step programs, or group therapy.
  • Help developing and implementing a plan for your long and short-term sobriety.
  • Family programs such as family mediation, therapy, or educational programs.
  • Activities that can take your mind off of your cravings while helping you master new skills. Some facilities also offer educational and career counseling and training.

Rehab usually takes a month or two, with the average stay hovering around 45 days. The length of time you're in rehab depends on your commitment to your own sobriety, the drugs you use, how long you've been an addict, your health, and similar factors. You and your treatment team will decide together when you're ready to check out, though you have final say.

How Do I Need Rehab?

Addiction is a progressive disease, which means it won't go away on its own or get better with time. Instead, addiction tends to get worse. Although some people are able to white knuckle their way into sobriety without help, trying to go it alone greatly increases the chances that you'll relapse or fail at sobriety. If you're not sure whether you'll be able to get sober without help, review these risk factors. If you face several of these challenges, you'll likely need rehab to get clean:

  • Addiction runs in your family.
  • You live with addicts, or spend a majority of your time with other addicts.
  • You've had a previous addiction or relapse.
  • You have a behavioral addiction such as shopping or gambling.
  • You feel hopeless or depressed about your ability to achieve lasting sobriety.
  • You have physical or mental health conditions, or your drug or alcohol use is beginning to affect your health.
  • You've suffered serious withdrawal symptoms.
  • You've been arrested due to drugs or alcohol.
  • You mix drugs and alcohol, or are addicted to more than one substance.
  • Your family and friends actively undermine your sobriety goals.
  • You live in an unsafe or abusive home or you are homeless.
  • You've been an addict longer than a year.
  • You've lost a job or relationship due to drugs or alcohol.

What is Detox?

Drugs and alcohol bring about dramatic changes in your body chemistry. Over time, you become dependent on addictive substances, causing your body to believe that you “need” them. Thus when you suddenly stop using drugs or alcohol, your body revolts, causing headaches, shakiness, dizziness, stomach problems, nightmares, chills, night sweats, and depression. In most cases, symptoms are mild, but people who have abused drugs and alcohol for an extended period of time, as well as people who use some drugs such as opiates, are more likely to develop severe – and even life-threatening – symptoms. Drug and alcohol detox, therefore, is safest when done under medical supervision. Before you embark on a drug detox program, be sure to talk to your doctor.

How Long Does Juneau Detox Last?

Detox often takes less than a week. If you're addicted to an opiate such as heroin or have serious health problems, you may need a bit longer. At most, though, detox and withdrawal will only last about two weeks.

What Should I Bring to Detox?

Detox is a time to focus on your health and well-being, so don't waste time packing an endless array of stuff you don't need. Instead, take the basic items you'll need for a week or two in detox, such as clothing, toiletries, a few reminders of home, and something to keep your mind occupied, such as a good book. If you take any medications, take these as well, and be sure to tell your treatment team about the drugs. Items that can be addictive, including mouthwash that contains alcohol, are usually banned. Dangerous items such as guns and knives are also typically prohibited.
