There are fewer drug and alcohol treatment centers in North Dakota compared to other states simply because of the small population. This can also be a good thing because many of the treatment centers are of very high quality and are nestled along scenic views. Getting sober in North Dakota can be very peaceful and many who go there end up staying. Many enjoy the small town feel and the lack of temptation of partying or clubbing one might find in a heavily populated city.
In September of 2016 North Dakota launched a state-funded voucher program that aims at assisting lower-income residents in finding local help for drug or alcohol addiction. Many are looking at this as a huge step forward for a state that has traditionally been very close minded when it comes to addiction. Private providers will have to apply to be able to accept vouchers, and then will be able to cash them in to the government. The ultimate goal of this is to enable more treatment centers to be capable of treating people with little or no insurance. So far the program is set only to last through 2017, but the success rates or political platforms could change this plan. The plan has already come under attack by republicans for being too expensive and inefficient, while proponents on the left insist it is a logical solution for low income individuals needing help.
