North Dakota is a northern midwestern state along the southern Canadian border, between Montana and Minnesota. The North Dakota landscape is mostly the Great Plains and has a large Native American population. With a population of just over 750,000, North Dakota is one of the least populated states in the country. The state's largest city is Fargo, followed by the capital city of Bismarck, with a population of around 72,000 people.
Alcohol abuse is the greatest concern in North Dakota, as it has been for many years. According to the state's epidemiological profile, North Dakota has among the nation's highest rates of alcohol use and excessive drinking across all age groups.The profile reports that 19 percent of middle school students in North Dakota reported using alcohol, and female students reported higher rates of alcohol consumption than male students, specifically since 2015. This trend reversed in high school when more male students reported alcohol use than females. Additionally, adults in North Dakota reported rates of alcohol consumption at 48 percent and 36 percent higher than the national average for spirits and beer, respectively. Rates of alcohol-related death in North Dakota are significantly higher than the national average, with liver disease and alcohol dependence being the leading chronic conditions among residents who died from excessive alcohol use. While alcohol consumption rates have been steady, they remain well above the national averages.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), opioid overdose death rates in North Dakota are less than half of the national average; however, there has been a significant increase from 4.5 to 7.6 deaths per 100,000 people over the two-year period from 2014 to 2016.
