      Warning Signs Many youth may show behaviors in adolescence that are indicative of substance abuse, but can also be considered normal behaviors while growing up. It is important to take notice if there are several signs happening at the same time, if they occur suddenly, and if the behaviors are extreme. The solution for an individual in Alaska that has an alcoholism problem is to seek professional alcohol rehabilitation at the first hint of an alcohol addiction. There are many different types of alcohol treatment facilities that are located in and around Alaska, including long term, short term, inpatient and outpatient, just to name a select few.
