According to Idaho’s Office of Drug Policy, alcohol is the most widely abused substance among the state’s youth. Worse yet, Idahoan youths abuse alcohol more often than their adult neighbors. Nearly 22% of high-schoolers in The Gem State reported binge drinking in the last month, compared with 16.6% of adults, per a survey done by the CDC in 2013.
With around 20 arrests for intoxicated driving every day, Idahoans could use some free help, and some alcohol abuse treatment resources available to anyone in the state. Well, we have it. Alcoholism is a disease, and the cure begins with helping yourself. Let us help you do just that.
