The banyan tree is one of the most beautiful and iconic trees in the world. Without support from other trees, the banyan tree becomes exposed and weak and fails to reach its full potential.

As one of few addiction treatment centers in Alaska, our accredited rehabilitation services have been expanded to treat clients and their loved ones for substance use and mental health disorders.

International drug trafficking organizations also gravitate towards Alaska’s drug market. Drug trafficking organizations exploit Alaska’s hub locations to access remote areas, high demand for substances, and limited law enforcement resources in isolated areas. Methamphetamine, opioids, and cocaine are the most commonly abused and dangerous drugs in Alaska.1

Our Alaska Treatment Center Welcomes All

Community and collaboration are the core principles at all Banyan rehab locations. We understand that all communities are different, and the community is especially unique. Not only are our levels of addiction treatment individualized to each patient’s needs, but we also consider the customs and traditions of Alaskan natives to ensure clients feel comfortable at our facility.

Our Banyan Alaska rehab carries proud accreditations and affiliations that illustrate our expertise. In addition to being a Joint Commission Accredited treatment provider, we have facilities within the Substance Treatment and Recovery (STAR) Network, and the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, and we are verified by Psychology Today for our leadership in substance abuse treatment.

Additionally, to offer the best level of care to our patients, our staff is composed of doctors, nurses, master’s level therapists, and behavioral health technicians with years of experience. We are equipped to treat Alaska natives for different forms of substance use disorders and support them as they transition from our Wasilla, Alaska rehab to a sober life.

Banyan’s Alaska Addiction Rehabilitation Services

To ensure that all patients receive the care they require, our team always conducts a clinical assessment. This assessment helps us better understand the severity of the individual’s condition and asks questions about their medical history, family history of addiction, type of substance use, symptoms, and more.

Our Alaska alcohol and drug rehab offers various forms of addiction treatment, including:

  • Alcohol Treatment
  • Benzodiazepine Treatment
  • Cocaine Treatment
  • Heroin Treatment
  • Methamphetamine Treatment
  • Opioid Treatment
  • Prescription Drug Treatment

In addition to substance-specific rehab programs, our facility also offers a variety of psychotherapy services to support mental recovery. Addiction is both physical and psychological, so we believe in not only targeting physical issues like withdrawals and cravings but also addressing the root behaviors and emotions that have contributed to the individual’s substance use.

We also provide Veterans outpatient addiction treatment at our facility. All of our programs are held on an outpatient level of care, which allows clients to focus on their recovery while still being able to spend time with loved ones, continue to work, and/or go to school.

If you or someone you care about is battling addiction, our Wasilla, AK substance abuse treatment center is here to help. Contact Banyan Treatment Centers today to learn more about our addiction treatment facilities and services.
