Minot Service Offers Help With Addiction

Posted: Updated:
According to the World Health Organization 3.3 million deaths in 2012 were due to harmful use of alcohol.

Alcohol consumption can not only lead to dependence, but also increases people's risk of developing more than 200 diseases.

RSI Rehab Services in Minot is working to help those who have decided to step away from alcohol.

"It is not an all or nothing deal. Sometimes they will go three or four days, three or four weeks or three or four months. Something will come along and trip them up, but its not the end. If they are still breathing, they meet the minimum requirement for being clean and sober," says Colman Quill of RSI Recoveree.

Quill says this telephone program fits North Dakota well, because we're a rural environment and not everybody has access to AA meetings and group sessions.
