About AK Child and Family
Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.
Alcoholism is one of the most common addictions in Alaska. Alcohol addiction (often referred to as alcoholism or alcohol use disorder) is characterized by a deep craving for alcohol and the inability to quit drinking regardless of any adverse effects. Alcohol use disorder ensues when the chemical changes from long-term alcohol use drive the brain to acclimate to normal functions creating a dependency. Many people who struggle with alcoholism find it challenging to quit without the help of a treatment facility such as AK Child and Family. The alcoholism treatment at AK Child and Family in Anchorage, Alaska is designed to give you the support you need to quit drinking once and for all.
Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by a physical and psychological dependency on drugs. Drug addiction occurs when extensive drug use causes changes in a person’s brain chemistry, resulting in uncontrollable cravings to use regardless of the adverse effects. The only way to overcome drug addiction or other addiction disorders is to receive addiction treatment. AK Child and Family in Anchorage, Alaska offers many treatment options for those struggling with drug addiction. If you or someone you love is struggling with drug addiction, get help as soon as possible.

Substance abuse refers to the act of misusing drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse problems can refer to illicit drugs — such as heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine — or legal drugs, such as alcohol or prescription medications. Substances frequently abused in Anchorage, Alaska include alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates/opioids, hallucinogens, and more. The main difference between substance abuse and drug addiction is that individuals with substance abuse problems can quit or change their unhealthy habits.
