The use of narcotics is a significant problem that many Montanans are faced with. Whether it is alcohol, meth, or anything in between, many Montanans struggle every day to cope with their addition and actively seek help doing so.
In the most recent survey, 10.77 percent of Montanans reported using illicit drugs in the past month. The national average was 8.2 percent. Additionally, 3.15 percent of Montana residents reported using an illicit drug other than marijuana in the past month (the national average was 3.6 percent). Montana drug-induced deaths (15.1 per 100,000) exceeded the national rate (12.8 per 100,000).
The Montana Region of Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship of men and women for whom drugs have become a problem. They receive people who are struggling with addiction and meet regularly to help each other stay clean. It is a program of complete abstinence of all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership: the desire to stop using.
