The Alaska Behavioral Health Association (ABHA) is proud of its diverse membership. Executive leaders from mental health and substance abuse treatment providers serving Alaskans from Ketchikan to Barrow, Eagle Village to Adak and all points in between have come together to help develop the best system of care possible to support people in their recovery.

With a few notable exceptions, the State of Alaska has privatized behavioral health services. Public mental health and substance abuse treatment services are offered primarily through a series of grant and contract agreements to private, for-profit and non-profit corporations as well as through providers reimbursed for their services by Medicaid.

ABHA is an association of tribal and non-tribal behavioral health providers. Our members serve infants, children, youth and adolescent, adults and the elderly. Members range from small community clinics to the largest mental health and the largest drug and alcohol treatment providers in the state. They provide clinic and rehabilitative services from prevention and early intervention services to acute, inpatient and residential care. Our diverse membership shares the common goal of continuously improving the quality, cost-effective, patient-centered behavioral health treatment services available to Alaskans.
