How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
One of the major social problems in Alaska is substance abuse; there are few options for adults that need a long-term residential substance abuse treatment program. Alaska Addiction Rehabilitation Services has provided this service to Alaskans since 1971, by uniquely combining substance abuse treatment with a working farm located on Nugen's Ranch. Numerous Alaskans have learned to live a clean and sober life with the assistance of AARS. Pick.Click.Give provides AARS with funding to assist with operating expenses (food, transportation, supplies, medications, etc.) and to continue our mission of providing quality residential substance abuse treatment services to Alaskans.
