Idaho is a small northwestern state with widespread mountainous landscapes, largely covered by protected wilderness areas, including the Rocky Mountains and the Boise River. Idaho is home to about 1.7 million people, giving it the third-smallest population among its neighboring northwestern states, Wyoming and Montana.
According to a 2006 Epidemiological Profile, western states generally have a higher alcohol consumption rate than the rest of the country. Among western states, Idaho has one of the lower rates of alcohol-induced deaths; however, it was 20 percent above the national average in 2005.
The same report also shows a significantly lower rate of homicide and drug-induced deaths than the national average.
Opioid related overdose deaths in Idaho have not been above the national average since 2001, yet according to The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Idaho's opioid-related overdose deaths in 2016 was 7.4 deaths per 100,000 people, well below the national average of 13.3 deaths per 100,000 people. However, there have been alarming increases in specific categories of opioid-related deaths from 2012 to 2016. In that four-year period:
While Idaho's opioid overdose death rates remain below the national average, providers in 2015 wrote 76.4 opioid prescriptions per 100 people, which outpaced the national average of 70.0 per 100 people in the same year.

According to the report, methamphetamine was the primary drug of abuse in 983 treatment admissions, compared to a total of 858 admissions in which alcohol was the primary or secondary drug.
