For the first time, prescription drug abuse is the number one cause of accidental death in the U.S., surpassing car crashes.  The Heartview foundation also reports alcohol and prescription drugs are the top substances abused among their patients.  

Now, with the population growth of western North Dakota, Heartview's treatment infrastructure is stretched and their ability to respond is compromised -- and delayed.  "When people call, it's a moment of intervention and if they have to wait, they lose that, we lose that opportunity," says Kurt Snyder, Executive Director, Heartview Foundation, Bismarck.

To cope, Heartview Foundation is launching a $1,000,000 fund-raising effort to undertake an expansion they say is much needed.  With the kick-off of their "50 Years of Hope" campaign, they're hoping to purchase the space next door -- known as the Gilman Building -- to accommodate up to 50 percent more patients.

 A former patient who's been through the program says it's needed.  "It is going to help hundreds, even thousands of people, reaching out, and that's so important.  Heartview gives you hope," says Sonja Bosch.

You can contribute to the campaign and have your name, or the name of a loved one, etched into a brick on the "Pathway to Recovery."  For more information on Heartview's fund-raising campaign, or to contribute, go to www.heartview.org.
