Addiction in Minnesota
Minnesota is located in the upper midwest of the United States in the Great Lakes region. Due to a large number of lakes, the state is known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.” Throughout the state, residents and tourists can enjoy wilderness areas, parks, and wide open spaces to explore. But, in contrast to the beautiful scenery, Minnesota also presents a dark side that comes from widespread drug abuse and crime.
Most of Minnesota’s drug-related problems stem from heroin abuse. In fact, about 17% of treatment admissions in the state were from heroin. Federal funding falls short of providing treatment for addicts, leaving about 85% of them not getting the help they need.
