Minnesota is currently…
experiencing a drug epidemic unlike anything we have ever faced before. As a treatment program, we see it everyday. It’s not just in large cities, it’s in rural areas and even in our schools. No community or demographic is immune. We are committed to raising awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Minnesota has the cheapest, purest, and most addictive heroin in the country. As a result, the number of overdoses have tripled in the past five years. Please take time to read our blog entries and news stories, watch some videos and stay informed by following us on social media.
“I can tell you [that] addiction is a factor in the majority of the cases I see come across my desk everyday. Today, in Minnesota, we are up against a growing problem; addictions to alcohol, prescription pills, meth, and maybe the most frightening of all, heroin. That’s why I am thankful for partners like Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge. In my opinion, their full range of programs including intensive treatment, long-term residential recovery, and their prevention presentations, make Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge part of the solution we so badly need”
