Minot moves forward with plans to battle addiction

A 200,000 dollar grant will help Minot fight addiction, it came from the Bush Foundation.


That grant is now being used to build task force teams to gather resources for those who need help. 


In a special meeting held Tuesday evening, Mayor Shawn Sipma passed a motion to form a recovery communities organization. 


The organization will serve as a non-profit case management entity for communities within a 100 mile radius of Minot. 


“We may not even need to create new things right now, it’s more efficiently use that –and get those individuals to the help that they need –We need to get that hub in the middle the recovery communities organization that draws in and pools in all those tools that we have together,” said Paul Stroklund, a member of the Mayors Committee on Addiction.

The organization will be set up of 6 board members and an executive director
