Consequences Of Substance Abuse In Grand Forks

The consequences of substance abuse can affect nearly every aspect of life (social, professional, personal, et cetera). In 2021, there were over 40 overdose deaths in Grand Forks. After a spike in Fentanyl-related deaths in recent years, the city launched “Operation Denial” to curtail drug trafficking in the area. The following year, drug overdoses nearly doubled, prompting the city to allow the sale of anti-overdose medication, Naloxone, in pharmacies.
