North Dakota Substance Abuse Data

Prevention research has illustrated the importance of using data to guide efforts in making a positive change. This assessment process involves the gathering and examination of data related to substance use and related consequences, community climate, environment and infrastructure/resources.

Based on the assessment of need, resources and readiness, we are able to pinpoint what the problems are in our state and community and identify prevention priorities on which to focus our efforts.
