Montana is known as the Treasure State due to its history of gold and silver mining. These days, the treasure drawing most tourists to the state is Montana’s breathtaking natural landscape, featuring spectacular national parks, rushing rivers filled with rainbow trout, broad prairies where mule deer and antelope run, and rugged, mountainous forests where grizzly bears and mountain lions rule.
The small population—just a little over 1 million residents statewide—allows most of Montana to remain natural and unspoiled. Healthy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping and skiing are very popular. Sadly, this does not make the citizens exempt from our nation’s substance abuse epidemic. In fact, Montana has the 21st highest drug mortality rate out of the 50 United States.
If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, please seek help treatment centers in Montana.
