Montana gets its name from Spanish and Latin words meaning “mountain” or “mountainous country.” In total, there are about seventy-seven named mountain ranges in the western part of the state. Between the mountains are rich river valleys. The eastern region is made up of prairies and badlands. Millions of tourists visit the state each year to enjoy such sights as the Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the Little Bighorn Battlefield Monument. Among all this natural beauty, it’s difficult to imagine the staggering drug-related problems that abound in this area. For one example, the number of arrests for illegal drugs has increased 547% since 2010 . Also hard to imagine is the fact that 80% of the drug-related arrests in 2016 involved methamphetamine. Let’s take a look at the statistics for other drug-related problems in the state.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a report estimating that over 90% of individuals arrested were charged with addiction-related offenses. This might explain why Montana’s prisons and treatment facilities are at or near capacity. Another study shows that the number of children in foster care due to parental drug abuse has doubled since 2010. In 60% of those cases, methamphetamine is responsible. Here are a few more shocking facts you might not have heard about the drug situation in Montana:
About one in 10 residents abuses or is dependent on drugs or alcohol.
Approximately 61% of high school students who drink alcohol participate in binge drinking.
One in five adults in Montana reported binge drinking in the last month.
In 2015, about 57% of drug violations were for marijuana, 31% for methamphetamine, and 7% for narcotics.
Drug violations related to heroin increased 1,557% from 2010 to 2015.
One in four young adults admitted to using illicit drugs in the past 30 days.
About one-fifth of high school students used marijuana in the past year.
As many as 23% of young adults are currently using marijuana.
Among high school students, 16% reported abusing prescription drugs in their lifetime.
About 9% of young adults admitted to nonmedical opioid use in the past year.
Since 2010, there have been more than 41,600 ER visits for alcohol abuse.
In that same period, there were 26,829 ER visits for drug-related problems.
There has been a 475% increase in heroin-related arrests since 2013.
There are many more statistics we could share here, but the goal was to give an overall idea of how severe the problem has become in this state. Now, let’s take a look at some of the things that are being done about the problem.
Governor Steve Bullock announced a new law passed in 2017 that will give first responders access to Naloxone, the life-saving opiate overdose reversal drug. Governor Bullock had this to say about the new bill:
“ Nationwide and in Montana, too many of our fellow friends, neighbors, and family members have been personally affected by this invisible epidemic and too many lives have sadly ended abruptly,” said Governor Bullock. “While we may not have all the solutions, we do know that by working together we can make significant progress. This is one piece to the puzzle that will give folks a second chance at life.”
