How We Serve

Providing the right level of care at the right time.

VOA Alaska offers a range of services in person, in schools, in the community, and via telehealth to support a full continuum of care for Alaska’s youth, young adults, and families.

As a non-profit, VOA Alaska’s services are offered at low or no cost, and no one is turned away due to the inability to pay.

Talk with a qualified clinician on your first call to begin addressing the challenges and difficulties your child, teen, or family is experiencing and learn more about how we can help you.

Find hope and encouragement through a conversation with one of our peer support specialists. Learn from their unique perspectives on how they overcame their own challenges related to substance misuse and mental health.

Receive support in navigating access to community resources that offer relief and support.
