The Rural Providers’ Conference (RPC) is an annual gathering designed by rural Alaskans who are substance abuse service providers, youth, Elders and family members interested in celebrating and encouraging the continual growth of the Alaska Native Sobriety Movement.
The RPC embraces and unites traditional Alaska Native knowledge and modern treatment and prevention methods to find solutions for alcohol and drug abuse. The conference features ceremonies, talking circles and cultural events. Workshops and general sessions are geared toward clinicians working with rural Alaskans, those in recovery, as well as Elders, youth, and other adults.

We hear a lot about Alaska’s rates of sexual assault, some of the highest in the nation – six times the national average for children. And while the statistics get a lot of attention, the focus is rarely on the survivors of abuse, who are scattered in our midst – friends, family, neighbors, co-workers – who struggle with trauma from the past as best they can. For many, it has poisoned the present and threatens the future.
Thank You to our Sponsors.
An expression of gratitude.
2019 Rural Providers’ Conference – what a success! On behalf of RurAL CAP and the RPC Planning Committee team, we want to extend our heart-felt thank you to all the sponsors: Alaska Pacific University, Recover Alaska, Sealaska, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Cook Inlet Tribal Council, and the Indigenous Native Music Association for their commitment to making this event so successful. We sincerely appreciate your contribution.
It was the vision of RurAL CAP, the Board of Directors and the RPC Planning Committee to inform, educate, and entertain while celebrating the continual growth of the Alaska Native Sobriety Movement. Your generous contribution helped make our vision a reality by helping to offset the cost of holding the Conference.
As we continue to grow, please know that partnerships with our sponsors are vital to the success of this 2019 RPC conference. You are truly appreciated. Thank you!
