Statewide Initiative to Solve Addiction

2017 Community Listening Sessions

With the support of a Community Innovation Grant from the Bush Foundation, we're engaging with communities and stakeholders across the state to address North Dakota's addiction crisis.

A statewide survey was deployed in 2016 to understand more about the public's perceptions around addiction and available resources. See that report here.

Now, a statewide task force of business, community and public sector leaders is being formed to gather input from community listening sessions in seven communities.

The focus of the meetings will be on identifying ways to coordinate statewide services, remove barriers and fill gaps in current care models. The goal is to design a public/private partnership plan that ensures far greater access to high quality, effective addiction care and support across North Dakota.
