Dickinson, North Dakota – In the Middle of the Bakken Oil Field
We have been following Dickson in the news. And we are here to offer our support.
We all know Dickinson sits almost on the famous Bakken Oil Field where drilling has made the National news for some years. In the wake of this boom has and is coming refineries which process it. Workers are coming from near and far to get one of its high paying jobs. The excitement of a new job in a slowly improving National economy is countered by the leaving of hearth and home, limited (and expensive) housing & recreation, loss of old friends and limited family contact. Naturally, such conditions can easily lead to loneliness and its evil brother, depression (anxiety too).
“In western North Dakota, new workers are still coming, businesses are still hiring. Right now, North Dakota has the strongest economy in the Nation and an unemployment rate so low it almost requires an act of will to be out of work — 2.8 percent statewide, despite temporary layoffs.
Working hard all day is not enough for many of these transplants. We are aware of growing public safety needs. While news from home provides much welcomed relief, sometimes more support is desperately needed.
