Substance Abuse in Alaska

According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Alaska ranked as one of the top ten states for illicit drug use in the country. Approximately 16,951 Alaskans have a serious substance use disorder and 42.8 percent of these residents are in the low-income range.  

Alaska is home to 229 American Indian and Native American tribes sprawled throughout rural villages. Within these communities, there is an alarmingly high rate of poverty, violence, suicide, alcoholism and drug abuse. 

Approximately 14 percent of Alaskans reported illicit drug use in the past month, above the national average of 8.82 percent. 

Trending Drug Use

While alcohol and marijuana are the most widely used drugs, treatment admissions have increased for heroin, prescription drug abuse, and methamphetamine in Alaska rehab centers. Below is a list of the more recent trends in drug use: 

Alcohol 

Alcoholism is an epidemic throughout rural and urban areas in Alaska, and it’s often linked to violence and suicide. In 2013, there were many accident-related deaths due to alcohol and at least 214 charges and arrests due to alcohol consumption.  

Alcoholism is so prevalent in Alaska, that a normal $50 bottle of liquor can easily sell for $150- $300 a bottle in some counties such as Bethel, Kotzebue and Barrow. While there are efforts to try to curb alcohol use through policy change, alcoholism remains high.  

Marijuana

Marijuana abuse is very common in the state. Alaska is a marijuana exporting state because of its extremely high quality. The state is known for its ample supply of “BC Bud”, which is commonly trafficked from British Columbia, Canada. Synthetic marijuana, which is a mixture of psychoactive drugs and chemical substances, is often sold online and in smoke shops as incense or herbs.

Prescription Drug Abuse

Prescription drug abuse is an epidemic in the United States, and it’s a never-ending problem in Alaska. Opiates or painkillers such as OxyContin/oxycodone and hydrocodone are the most commonly abused drugs. 

Due to the rising prices and the higher street value of the drugs, there has recently been an uptick in violence, robberies, prescription fraud, and pharmacy robberies.  

Heroin

Since prescription pills are more of a hassle to obtain and they are more expensive, heroin has become the drug of choice for many addicts. Heroin is cheaper and more potent than prescription drugs and it’s widely accessible throughout Alaska.

Methamphetamine

Meth seizures went from 2,282 kilos to 10,000 kilos in a four-year period from 2008 to 2012.  The “One Pot” or “Shake and Bake” method of crystal meth production is fueling the meth addiction in the state. This homemade method usually consists of an empty plastic water bottle that contains all the toxic chemicals to make crystal meth. This has consequently lead to more meth lab explosions and fires. 

Cocaine

There is still a very high demand for cocaine in Alaska. It continues to be a very lucrative drug that is widely trafficked through the international airport, post offices, and courier vehicles.
