An Evaluation of the Alcoholism Rehabilitation Center Located at Fairbanks, Alaska.
Grant, Claude W.; And Others
At the request of the Alaska Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Alaska State Office of Alcoholism, the Alcoholism Rehabilitation Center at Fairbanks which serves Alaska Natives was evaluated in 1971. A three-member evaluation team evaluated the center's: (1) administrative structure and organization, (2) treatment program, and (3) relationship with the community and other social service agencies. Based on personal interviews held during two, week-long site visits, the evaluation team's recommendations were: (1) separation of facilities for rehabilitation feasible and rehabilitation nonfeasible alcoholics, (2) alteration of the treatment program to include careful client screening prior to feasible or nonfeasible assignment, (3) coordination of agency involvement under a broad policy-making council which would include various agency representatives, (4) formalization of the treatment program and facility remodeling to accommodate a more formalized atmosphere; (5) full time commitment by an actively involved director, (6) reduction in staff size, (7) development of an inservice training program for staff development, (8) development and utilization of a more simplified accounting system, (9) development of a financial statement indicative of individual client costs, (10) development of a one-fee system which could be broken down into service categories, (11) implementation of the quarterly report to aid funding agencies.
