The Alaska Department of Corrections: The Drug Treatment Picture

Group: University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center

URL: http://justice.uaa.alaska.edu/forum/17/1spring2000/e_docdrugs.html

Description

The Alaska Department of Corrections does not at present test inmates for drug or alcohol problems at the time they begin serving their sentences, so there are no firm figures available on the extent of the drug problem among the inmate population. Available treatment programs are always full; more inmates request treatment than there are spaces available. This article describes substance abuse programs within DOC facilities and the privately-operated Central Arizona Detention Center, where nearly 900 Alaska inmates are housed.
