How to Refer

If you are working with a patient who may need North Star’s services and you want to refer them, please contact us. Our specialized team of nurses and master’s level clinicians have extensive experience in handling mental health issues.

Our initial assessment is free, and depending on the patient’s needs, our staff will discuss options, provide referrals or make arrangements for admission to a North Star program.

The Trail Program

The Trail Program provides inpatient acute care for children and teens between the ages of 4 – 18. We are the only program in the entire state of Alaska providing this service to children under the age of 13.

When admitting a child or teen, our staff will coordinate with the family or guardian, and make arrangements for participation in continuing treatment with the parent’s permission. Contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 907-258-7575 or at 800-478-7575, and ask for our Needs Assessment office.
