North Dakota had the second-lowest amount of fatal drug overdoses, (70 total), among all US states in 2018. It’s definitely something to be proud of considering we’re in the midst of an opioid crisis. However, North Dakota consistently ranks among the very top states for alcohol abuse. Also in 2018, nearly half of all driving deaths in-state were alcohol related. The national average is 30%. Add the fact that North Dakota is slightly above the national average for rate of serious mental illness, and there is a clear problem. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Peace Garden State, and the last two are available nationally.
