North Dakota Drug Addiction Recovery and Treatment Programs and Centers

mnorthdakotaNorth Dakota is a relatively “quiet” state, but it ranks almost at the top of the list of states where consumption of alcohol and binge drinking are concerned. Obviously, alcohol is the substance most widely abused, but methamphetamine is quickly catching up. These two drugs affect every community in the state, partly because the people of the state of North Dakota have a relatively low perception of the risks of alcohol and drugs. The problem is also multigenerational- those whose parents and family abuse drugs and alcohol are more likely to be addicted themselves.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Illicit Drug Consumption and Consequences in North Dakota

The North Dakota Epidemiological Profile

February 2009

Of all admissions to North Dakota’s drug and alcohol treatment facilities, almost sixty percent were related to alcoholism, and twelve percent of THOSE were for people under the age of eighteen. For those living in the state, odds that an entire family will be affected by alcoholism or drug addiction are much greater than those of other states, and it’s likely that both parent and child will end up needing the services of one of North Dakota’s 65 drug and alcohol treatment centers.

As we mentioned, the abuse of methamphetamine in North Dakota is on the increase in spite of efforts by police to stop the smuggling of meth from Canada and Mexico, and to stop the proliferation of homemade meth labs. Most people seeking treatment for methamphetamine addiction in North Dakota are between twenty one and twenty five years old, so parents of young adults should be wary and never assume that it won’t happen to their family.

Those looking for drug treatment in North Dakota have a few choices. The great majority of the state’s centers are privately run, some for- and some non-profit. Fifteen are state-run and three are tribally owned. Of all these, more than a third receive public funding, which makes them available to a greater percentage of the population. There are also four programs and seven doctors that specialize in the treatment of opiate addictions and the administration of drugs like buprenorphine and methadone, which are used to control cravings and lessen withdrawal symptoms.

If you’re looking for a treatment center for yourself or a loved one in North Dakota, keep in mind that not all centers offer the same programs. Most of North Dakota’s clinics are run on an outpatient basis, but there are twenty three residential treatment centers for those that have more serious addictions. Residential treatment aims to detoxify the person’s body, remove them from temptation and a negative environment, and offer counseling.

The best way to stop an addiction is through early diagnosis and prompt treatment. If you or someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol, don’t delay in seeking help. There are places that will be able to help after a full medical evaluation has been done, and you can find many good drug and alcohol treatment programs in North Dakota.
