About Us

A private, nonprofit organization

With offices located in Homer and Kenai, Alaska, Cook Inlet Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (CICADA) provides clinically proficient treatment services for alcohol and drug abuse. Our mission at CICADA is to provide quality care for addiction treatment to the Southwestern Kenai Peninsula. In these treatment plans, we teach our clients to develop coping skills, identify relapse triggers, and rebuild their sense of self-worth and confidence. It’s within these coping skills that we ensure the success of our client’s recovery, since they will be utilizing them both during treatment and once they return home after treatment is over. At CICADA, we believe that everyone has the ability to recover from their addiction, despite how severe their addiction may be. We strive to do everything in our power to show our client’s that they can succeed in every facet of their life, not just in treatment. We are here to help break the cycle of addiction so that our clients can live the life that they deserve.
