Access to Care
What does it look like for someone who is experiencing alcohol misuse to reach out for support? This is a question we are regularly asking ourselves, our partners, and those who are at different places in their recovery journey.
At Recover Alaska we are deeply rooted in making connections, seeking out best practices, and imagining with others the possibilities to support the increase of access to services across the state—for all Alaskans. No matter what a person’s stage of change, where they live, or how they identify, we believe people not only need, but also deserve to have as many options as possible on their recovery journey.
We see access to care to be a community-wide concern and seek out opportunities to support initiatives that not only support increased opportunities for individuals and families, but also opportunities that encourage healing within communities and support the recovery movement to continue to grow in our state.
We do this through partnerships, relationships, funding opportunities, workgroups, trainings, and any other opportunities that provide connection, collaboration, and inclusivity. Below are some of the initiatives Recover Alaska has worked on to support access to care:
- Alaska 2-1-1 Collaboration for Resource Navigation
- Step Away App Partnership
- University of Alaska Master’s of Social Work Expansion
- Anchorage Library Resource Center Launch
- Lazarus Collaborative
- 9-8-8 Launch
- Alaskans Together for Medicaid
- SBIRT for All
- Integrated Care Report
