Find Drug and Alcohol Treatment in North Dakota That Works
Are you seeking help for your own substance use disorder? Do you have a friend or relative who’s struggling? The first step often involves making a phone call.
Some know North Dakota for Fargo, its largest city and the name of the dark comedy-crime drama TV series and Coen brothers film. Others know it as the northernmost state of the Great Plains, where antelope and buffalo freely roam.
As one of the least populated states in the country — with about 700,000 residents — it has one of the lowest drug overdose mortality rates in the country, but no state is immune to substance abuse. North Dakota still sees thousands of drug overdose and alcohol misuse cases every year. This proves the need for treatment resources that enable those who are struggling with addiction to get help. On this page, you’ll find some of those resources. Whether you’re ready to enroll in rehab and want to speak to someone about the best facility, or you just want general information about drug rehab centers in North Dakota, you’ll find the answers here.
North Dakota’s Opioid Crisis
North Dakota is sadly not immune to the nation’s opioid epidemic. Illicit and prescription opioid use is prevalent across the state, and nearly 48 out of every 100 residents holding prescriptions for opioid medications in 2016. Worse, these highly addictive narcotic painkillers have done more damage than healing as of late. In 2016, 80 North Dakotans died by opioid overdose — the highest opioid-related death toll the state has ever recorded. While these statistics are shocking, this trend doesn’t have to continue. Hope is on the horizon for the people of North Dakota, and the resources below can help anyone facing opioid addiction.
Choosing a North Dakota Rehab Facility
The alcohol and drug treatment facilities in North Dakota are designed to address substance use disorders. However, no two facilities are exactly alike, so it’s important to consider the dynamics of each before making a decision, including:
- The anticipated outcome of rehabilitation
- Which levels of care are offered
- If biological, psychological and social needs are addressed
- Whether the programs are personalized
- The length of each program
- Whether other drugs are used in treatment
The Recovery Village: Your Destination for Wellness
Many who struggle with substance use disorder have found that an out-of-state rehab facility — away from familiar triggers — is a better option than one closer to home. The Recovery Village has several locations outside of North Dakota, three of which are listed below. These facilities offer evidence-based treatment (including medically supervised alcohol and drug detox at most locations) in a tranquil, caring environment.
