BISMARCK — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and first lady Kathryn Burgum are calling on state residents to participate in a survey on addiction in the state.
According to a news release from the governor's office, the "North Dakota Addressing Addiction" survey was developed between the state and the Addiction Policy Forum, a non-profit organization which works to combat addiction.
The survey will aim to "gain a greater understanding of the attitudes and knowledge the citizens of North Dakota have related to addiction," the release stated. Survey results may also be used to help communities respond to addictions and educate the public.
“As we strive to find solutions to the addiction crisis, we want to hear directly from the citizens of North Dakota, because data-driven decisions make for better policies and programs," Gov. Burgum stated via news release.
The confidential online survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Identifying information will not be collected and participants may stop at any time. It will remain open until Tuesday, Aug. 31.
“Addiction continues to devastate families, businesses and communities across our state,” first lady Burgum said via release. “The short time you spend sharing your thoughts on this survey can help support healthy and safe communities throughout North Dakota.”
