Helping Alaskans' Reach Their Potential
We’re a non-profit agency dedicated to helping people choose and maintain healthy drug-free lifestyles. Our prevention programs work to reduce the number of people ever entering the world of addiction, while outpatient and residential programs treat those already trapped in the disease.
For 120 years, we have served the most vulnerable, through our core mission to relieve human suffering. In Alaska, we fight addictions, stand with those who are alone, and provide housing to those without a stable home. We work to change community conditions and prevent risk behaviors through public health initiatives and partnerships. We support grandparents as caregivers, and promote positive youth leadership development - and so much more.
