Drug Rehabs North Dakota

The trafficking and use of methamphetamine is the primary concern for law enforcement and public health officials in North Dakota. At the present time, no single drug trafficking organization dominates the distribution of methamphetamine. Mexican poly-drug organizations have sources of supply in Mexico, California, and Washington, and transport methamphetamine into North Dakota via privately owned vehicles, Amtrak trains, and Greyhound buses. Smaller quantities of methamphetamine are mailed via U.S. mail and Federal Express. Mexico-based drug trafficking organizations dominate the transportation of marijuana from the Southwest Border to North Dakota. Private vehicles and commercial mail carriers are used to ship small quantities, ranging from five to ten pounds. Local cultivation of marijuana is done on a relatively small scale.

The methamphetamine problem in North Dakota has sparked the need for more drug rehab programs. However, not all alcohol and drug rehab centers are the same - each rehab can differ significantly in philosophies, program options, credentials, staff skills and qualifications, and cost. The process of selecting the right drug rehab in North Dakota can be confusing. Most of us don't know exactly what to look for or the questions to ask that will help determine the drug rehab center that's best designed to meet our needs.

North Dakota Drug Use and Drug-Related Crime

  • During 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reported making 55 arrests for drug violations in North Dakota.
  • Marijuana was involved in 1,532 adult arrests in North Dakota during 2007.
  • During 2007, there were 196 adult arrests for drug sale/manufacturing and 1,839 adult arrests for drug possession in North Dakota.
  • According to 2005-2006 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 30,000 (6%) of North Dakota citizens (ages 12 or older) reported past month use of an illicit drug.
  • Approximately 210,000 (39.64%) North Dakota citizens reported that using marijuana occasionally (once a month) was a “great risk”.
  • Additional 2005-2006 NSDUH results indicate that 12,000 (2.24%) North Dakota citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 9,000 (1.61%) reported past year illicit drug dependence.
  • During 2007, authorities reported that there were no children affected by methamphetamine laboratories in North Dakota.
  • Alcohol, drugs, and medications were contributing factors in 42 of the 111 North Dakota traffic fatalities during 2007.
  • There were 2,382 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in North Dakota in 2007. During 2006, there were 2,623 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in North Dakota. There were 2,312 such treatment admissions during 2005.
  • According to 2005-2006 NSDUH data, approximately 11,000 (2.02%) North Dakota citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.
  • In the state of North Dakota it is estimated that there will be around 2,937 DUI's, and 34 deaths due to intoxicated driving this year. Statistics also show that there will be 178 deaths related to alcohol abuse, 912 tobacco related deaths, and 35 deaths due to illicit drug use.
  • It is believed that there are around 30,685 marijuana users, 5,028 cocaine addicts, and 284 heroin addicts living in North Dakota. It is also estimated that there are 13,437 people abusing prescription drugs, 1,281 people that use inhalants, and 2,282 people who use hallucinogens.
  • In North Dakota, there will be around 3,873 people arrested this year for drug related charges.
  • Cocaine:
    • Cocaine is no longer the stimulant of choice - methamphetamine surpassed cocaine in the area several years ago. The Fargo Resident Office reports relatively few encounters with cocaine.
  • Heroin:
    • Heroin distribution and use have not been a significant problem in North Dakota. Heroin trafficking is a low priority for law enforcement agencies in the state. Virtually all of the heroin encountered in North Dakota, mainly in Fargo, is black tar heroin from Mexico.
  • Methamphetamine:
    • The methamphetamine threat in North Dakota is a two-pronged problem. First, large quantities of methamphetamine produced by Mexican organizations based in California and Washington are transported into and distributed throughout the state. Second, methamphetamine is produced in small, toxic laboratories that are capable of producing only a few ounces at a time. North Dakota’s State General Assembly passed legislation requiring that every individual who purchases a product containing pseudoephedrine must show photo identification. This legislation has resulted in a sharp decline in the local production of methamphetamine, and a sharp decline in thefts of anhydrous ammonia, commonly used in the "Birch" methamphetamine manufacturing method.
  • Club Drugs:
    • There have been only minor indications that “Club Drugs” are making their way into the Fargo area in small quantities.
  • Marijuana:
    • The presence of marijuana cultivated in Canada (both "B.C. Bud" and hydroponically generated) had increased dramatically. Canadian drug organizations from Vancouver and Manitoba use the wide North Dakota border with Canada to bring these types of marijuana into the United States; but with the bulk of the marijuana destined for areas outside of North Dakota. North Dakota State University (NDSU) is continuing its approval process to commercially grow HEMP, which may occur in 2009. A recent court ruling indicates that NDSU will have to follow DEA’s rules and regulations of this action.
  • Pharmaceuticals and Other Drugs:
    • Recent investigations indicate that diversion of hydrocodone products is taking place in North Dakota. Typical methods of diversion are illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping” (going to a number of doctors to obtain prescriptions for a controlled pharmaceutical), forged prescriptions, and the Internet.

North Dakota is bordered by Canada and the U.S. states of Minnesota, South Dakota, and Montana. The Missouri River crosses it; the Red River forms its eastern boundary. In the 20th century North Dakota’s history was marked by the increasing mechanization of agriculture, the enlargement of farms, and the loss of a rural population. In the 1950s it became an oil-producing state, and in the 1960s air bases and missile sites were built there. Its larger cities include Fargo, Grand Forks, and Minot.
