The state of Alaska has a unique climate, drawing in many to see the state's scenic landscape. Although it is a large state by area, it has one of the smallest populations when compared to the rest of America. The home of the Aurora Borealis and over 3 million lakes, Alaska does also battle high drug abuse rates. Substances like Methamphetamine and Marijuana, Stimulants like Cocaine, and Opioids like Heroin were the most frequently abused drugs. Unfortunately, alcohol abuse remains high. The combined effect of Alaskan drug use made the state 10th in the nation for substance abuse. While this may seem dismal, there is always hope.
