Centre Description

The founders of Nugen’s Ranch had some unusual ideas, back in the early 1980’s, when they were making plans to open the first long-term alcoholism treatment program in Alaska. 

Leonard and Henrietta Nugen opened Nugen’s Ranch in 1981, with the support of a visionary Board of Directors.  Their views on the successfull treatment of long-term alcoholism, since then, have provided blueprints for sober living for people throughout Alaska.

Nugen’s Ranch became the first long-term treatment program in Alaska to receive national accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitaion Facilities (CARF) in 1993.

Karen Nugen-Logan, daughter of the founders, was named Executive Director in 1994.  Her appointment created a second generation of Nugen-based philosophy – training and education balanced with the cold reality of experience with addiction behaviors.  Employed by the Ranch since 1985, Karen Nugen-Logan has guided the Ranch’s operations into a new century.

Today Nugen’s Ranch serves adult men and women who have abused alcohol and drugs.  The beautiful Matanuska-Susitna Valley setting, daily Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings, NA meetings, farm activities, work therapy, individual and small group counseling combine to create a supportive low-key family atmosphere.
