North Dakota Addiction Hotlines
America has a severe addiction problem, and North Dakota is no exception. Substance abuse is among the top health concerns in the state. This year, 9.36% of residents reported illicit drug use sometime during the last month, per the CDC. A total of 124 residents died from overdoses in 2021 alone. Data is not yet available for last year, but that’s a big number for a state with a low population.
Unfortunately, addiction has a grip not just on North Dakota, but on all of America. Fortunately, there is help. Below are three completely free resources for help with substance abuse available to residents of the Peace Garden State. Addiction is a disease, and the cure begins with helping yourself. We aim to be part of that help.
