At Clitheroe Center, our mission is to improve the quality of life for all Alaskans seeking treatment for substance abuse through culturally relevant evidence-based practices to contribute to lifetime recovery.

Residential - Clitheroe’s Residential Program includes a dual diagnosis treatment program for individuals with mental health issues, as well as substance abuse issues. The 42 bed campus near Point Woronzof is a safe, therapeutic environment for those seeking recovery.

Outpatient - The Outpatient Program provides family services, counseling and support for those who would benefit from outpatient treatment, have completed inpatient treatment, and need continuing care or are not in need of inpatient treatment.

All intakes and assessments for both Outpatient and Residential services are handled via the Outpatient office. Staff provides on-site assessments at local jails and hospitals as needed.  Individuals can self-refer; referrals from local agencies and governmental organizations are also accepted.
