The Impact of Addiction in North Dakota
Elk, bison, wild horses and toxic rattle nakes live in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Dakota North has more per capita golf courses than any other territory. The state also houses a series of endurance tests, the ENDracing phenomenon. Offbeat towns like Fargo and Bismarck provide an opportunity to explore the old-western history of the State. The best fishing is at Devils Lake, the birthplace of walleye, pike and lousy north. The Macca Museum with dinosaurs and a soda shop of the 1950s are the North Dakota Heritage Centre.
North Dakota is one of the least affected states when it comes to drugs. The state has one of the lowest rates of drug addiction in the country, ranking at 47th place. Even though the rate of addiction is low, it has been increasing in recent years.
Both marijuana and methamphetamine abuse has been rising over the past few years. Most of these drugs are brought in through Canada and distributed further. This makes for extremely low prices and an abundance of drugs in North Dakota.
Of course, North Dakota is a wonderful place to visit and stay, but it has issues with substance addiction as do all other states.
While the rates of abuse for other drugs have been rising, the rate of prescription drug abuse has been decreasing over the past 15 years. In 2011, 6.5% of North Dakota residents used prescription drugs in non-medical situations. In 2015, this number had lowered to just 4.9%.
Despite these drugs being readily available in North Dakota, the most commonly abused substance in the Peach Garden state is alcohol. It is reported that 5.26% of the population abuses alcohol in a year, which includes several minors. Binge drinking is a large problem, with 24.8% of the population taking part. This is almost eight full points above the national average of 16.9%. This number has led to many drunk drivers on the road which has increased drunk driving fatalities. Almost half of all road deaths in North Dakota are tied to alcohol.
North Dakota has taken several measures to decrease substance abuse and raise awareness about the consequences. One important program is the Substance Use Disorder Voucher. The program was set up to give financial support to those seeking substance abuse treatment in North Dakota. Since its establishment, the program has put over 3,500 residents through treatment.

Half of all bartenders in North Dakota admit to having served alcohol to those who are underage.
- Marijuana has become the most commonly cited drug of choice in treatment admissions in North Dakota.

- While the rate of opioid-related overdoses in North Dakota is low when compared to others, eight per 100,000 people die from opioid overdoses each year. In 2017, half of all reported overdoses in North Dakota involved opioids.
