New system will improve access for Alaskans to treatment services
The Division of Behavioral Health is working with Open Beds, a web-based platform that improves access to treatment services through digital screening of a patient’s needs, scanning and scheduling of available treatment services, secured messaging and data analytics. This project will focus on increasing access to residential treatment beds and outpatient services across the state for Alaskans suffering from substance use disorders. Open Beds will replace the Division’s current treatment locator.
The new system will go live sometime early next year.
In the meantime, our current locator provides information about where treatment services are located in Alaska and what the bed availability is in each location. In addition, DHSS has published a new brochure that describes what substance use treatment services are and how to access these services across the state. Find more information on our new website, findtreatment.alaska.gov.
