If you live in Bismarck, or its surrounding areas, you may be especially prone to addiction. Although the meth epidemic has largely been brought under control, the state has one of the highest alcoholism rates in the U.S. Prescription drug abuse is on the rise, and smoking is a chronic problem.
Rural and frontier regions are lovely places to live, but they often come with high risk factors for substance abuse. Some of the reasons for this are listed below:
- Fewer venues for entertainment, resulting in boredom
- Harsh, isolating winters
- Poor economy, unemployment and poverty
You’re at even greater risk if you are part of Bismarck’s Native American population; this people group struggles with addiction at almost twice the rate of the national average.
Addiction Is Treatable
Your substance abuse isn’t due to weakness of character. It doesn't indicate a moral flaw. Lack of willpower has nothing to do with it.

Your Treatment Program Should Be Personal and Private
While you are making your decision on a rehabilitation facility consider those facilities that may be top-notch in other cities as well as those in your area. Many patients choose to travel to treatment centers that are outside of their home areas because it takes them away from the place where they became addicted. Every addict is different, but sometimes getting out of town and into a new location can give you a new perspective and a fresh start during recovery. In addition, peer pressure and negative influences will not be a problem if you are away from your home area.
With that being said, if you are opting for an outpatient treatment program, you may be better served by choosing a facility that is close to home. This option is often chosen by those who have families they need to take care of, jobs and careers they need to retain, or classes they need to attend. We know that each individual case is different, and we are willing to work with you to find the best treatment center for your recovery.
