FAQ’s About Our Substance Abuse Treatment
How can I get into your program?
Your first step is to call or walk in. we are ready to serve you and do not believe in a waitlist. Generally, the first step to engaging in treatment is to get an assessment. If you have had an assessment in the last six months we may be able to use some or all of that information to develop a treatment plan with you so you can begin treatment. Come into our office at 591 S. Knik Goose Bay Rd or give us a call at 907.313.1333 and we can walk you through the process.
Do you provide Residential care?
Not currently; however, we do have sober living houses in addition to our intensive outpatient, outpatient, and aftercare services, in combination with peer support and case management.
How much do assessments cost?
Assessments are covered by Medicaid and all major insurances. If you are without insurance, we will work with you, on a case by case basis, using a sliding fee scale.
What is the difference between treatment and the housing option and residential treatment?
Residential treatment programs require you to be in their program and you are provided limited access to the community while enrolled. Our housing program does have curfew hours, but you are not required to stay at the home all day. This type of program allows you to be in treatment with us or one of the other outpatient treatment programs in the valley, while also obtaining and maintaining employment and or attending school. Our housing provides the security of residential with the freedom of outpatient.

True North Recovery works closely with inpatient programs, detox and the hospital to provide a seamless transition between services. We can oversee E.M. in our housing and coordinate with probation and parole officers. If your E.M. requires a telephone line, you would be required to pay hook up and pay for that services separately.

Can couples participate in treatment at the same time, as well as in your transitional living?
