Face It TOGETHER Launches Survey for North Dakota Addiction Initiative

–Residents age 18 and over encouraged to provide their input–

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#addiction–Face It TOGETHER is launching a North Dakota statewide survey to learn
more about the public’s understanding of drug and alcohol addiction.

The online survey is being promoted across the state, including targeted
cities of Fargo-Moorhead, Grand Forks, Dickinson, Williston, Minot and
Jamestown as part of a statewide initiative to develop solutions
for addiction in North Dakota.

The survey was already distributed in early 2016 in the Bismarck-Mandan
area, with results reported here.

Survey results will help the organization better meet the needs of the
state when it comes to developing solutions to the addiction crisis. The
survey is open to residents age 18 and over until September 19.

The survey is available online here
or can be accessed at www.wefaceittogether.org/north-dakota.

About the Face It TOGETHER North Dakota Initiative

The North Dakota Initiative will institutionalize a statewide system to
solve addiction and build on the existing work in the communities of Bismarck-Mandan,
and Grand Forks.

With the support of a Community Innovation Grant from the Bush
Foundation, a task force will gather input from a series of town hall
meetings on how to best coordinate statewide services, remove barriers
and fill gaps in current care models. The initiative’s ultimate goal is
to design a public/private partnership plan that ensures addiction is
treated like a chronic disease across the whole state.
