Press Copy: JUNEAU EMPIRE STAFF REPORT September is National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, and the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium is partnering with community programs throughout the region to host special events in Sitka, Juneau and Prince
of Wales Island during this month. National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month is hosted nationally by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery:
Recovery Benefits Everyone.” To help people in their recovery, SEARHC offers three residential substance abuse treatment centers in Sitka — Yéil Jeeyáx Raven’s Way for adolescents (ages 13-18), Gunaanastí Bill Brady Healing Center for adults and Déilee Hít
Safe Harbor House for women. SEARHC provides outpatient alcohol and substance abuse treatment through its Haa Toowóo Náakw Hít behavioral health clinic in Sitka, its Juneau Behavioral Health Clinic, and through the Community Family Services program in nine
communities — Angoon, Craig, Haines, Hoonah, Hydaburg, Kake, Klawock, Klukwan and Petersburg. SEARHC also offers a Behavioral Health/Suicide Prevention Program that works with schools and youth groups to prevent youth substance abuse and young adult binge
drinking. In addition, the program offers a toll-free 24/7 SEARHC Help Line at 1-877-294-0074 for Southeast residents who need help in a time of crisis, sponsors the “1 is 2 Many” regional suicide prevention task force for Southeast Alaska, offers suicide
prevention/intervention training in the region and hosts a Youth Ambassadors program to prevent suicide. For more information, including a schedule of events, visit or contact Teri Tibbett in Juneau at 465-4765 or Harry Bradley in Sitka at 907-966-8655.
