An Assessment is Your First Step to Recovery!
At Set Free Alaska we understand each person is unique and to be valued so treatment options are individualized according to your specific needs.
One of our caring professionals will sit down with you and provide you with a recommendation for what level of care (treatment) is most appropriate for your specific circumstances. It’s an opportunity to share your needs and desires with someone who can help get you get started towards freedom from addiction.
