Find Drug and Alcohol Treatment in Montana That Works
From the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains, Montana’s stunning views and picturesque landscapes are truly captivating. The Treasure State lives up to its name, with more wildlife than any other state (including grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, caribou, and many more), Yellowstone Park, and scenic mountain pathways like “Going to the Sun Road.” Montana is home to authors like Dorothy Baker, daredevils like Evel Knievel and actors like Gary Cooper. Residents and visitors agree: There’s so much to love about this Western gem.
But for all its beauty, Montana is afflicted with toxic substances that are both addictive and deadly: drugs and alcohol. And as the opioid epidemic rages on across the country, Montana has seen a rise in substance and alcohol use disorders in the past few years. But this trend doesn’t have to continue. Doctors, addiction specialists and caring community leaders are working together to ensure that those who need help can get into Montana alcohol treatment or find the right Montana drug rehab center. If you are one such Montanian, or know someone who needs treatment, you can find resources here, or call The Recovery Village to get started with rehabilitation now.
Montana’s Opioid Crisis
Montana is not immune to the effects of the opioid crisis ravaging America. A large percentage of the population currently takes opioid medications regularly, and nearly 70 out of every 100 Montana residents had opioid prescriptions in 2016. These powerful narcotics are notorious for causing more harm than healing though. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), opioid overdoses were responsible for 114 deaths in Montana in 2016. While these statistics are shocking, hope is on the horizon for the people of Montana. If you or a loved one is addicted to opioids, the below resources can help.

Montana Drug Abuse
Substance use disorders affect people across the United States, regardless of gender, race and social status. Montana is no exception. The following statistics help demonstrate the extent of the problem in state and highlight the need for alcohol and drug treatment in Montana:
This percentage equates to approximately 65,000 individuals in the state. Of those with alcohol dependence or abuse, only 8 percent received treatment. Access to affordable, high-quality treatment is key to combatting Montana’s alcohol problem.
While overall overdose deaths were fortunately at a 15-year-low in 2015, even one overdose is too many. As prescription opioids have become more of a problem in Montana, overdose deaths have since increased.
Like much of the United States, heroin use is on the rise in Montana. This is strongly influenced and driven by increases in prescription drug use in the state and across the country.
While meth has always been a problem in The Treasure STate, usage is on the rise. Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) seizures have revealed increases in purity levels in recent years, hinting at increases in stronger, deadlier forms of the drug.
If you’re seeking drug or alcohol treatment in Montana and are ready to check in to inpatient drug rehab, Montana has plentiful options. When deciding where to go, it’s important to consider out-of-state facilities too, which can often be beneficial in the recovery process. Whether you’re looking for intensive care or a clinic that offers outpatient drug rehab, Montana resources can vary greatly. Consider the following when deciding on a treatment center:
