North Carolina Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers and Programs

mnorthcarolina

North Carolina has seen a large increase in drug trafficking over the last few years. The main reason the drug problem is growing is that North Carolina is growing in population, as a matter of fact, at the time of this writing; North Carolina was the 10th most populated state in the US as stated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Many of the new residents are of Mexican origin, which allows Mexican drug-trafficking organizations to enter the area without being noticed. The illegal drug abuse problem includes drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin. However, the most abused drug in the state of North Carolina is alcohol.

In 2008, over eighty-five percent of individuals that entered a state owned rehabilitation center stated they had abused alcohol. In the state of North Carolina, alcohol is often paired with another drug bringing on multiple drug abuse problems.

As stated by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the dependence on illicit drugs or alcohol is about the same as other states, however, if you divide alcohol and drug abuse into separate categories, that drug abuse is the same or even higher than national rates with alcohol abuse a bit lower than national rates.

Drug and alcohol abuse treatment centers in North Carolina offer a wide range of different treatment options including help for families that have an abuser in the family. At the time of this writing, there were almost 400 drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in North Carolina. The division is about half private and the other half non-profit or state run facilities.

Most individuals in the state prefer outpatient treatment centers; however, there are residential programs available. A matter of fact, there are around sixty treatment centers offering resident care programs. Out of all the drug rehab and alcohol treatment centers, some are more centered on one type of addiction such as opiate, alcohol, methadone, or others. The majority of the drug abuse treatment centers as well as alcohol abuse centers use a combination of treatments including counseling, detoxification, and behavior modification.

North Carolina is not only seeing a rise in drug abuse, but is fast becoming a transshipment point to northern states home on the eastern coast as well as in the mid-west such as New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. Cocaine is just one of these drugs that is seen an increase in use, staging, and transshipment. Heroin drug abuse is quite low in the state but is growing. In most cases, the abuse of this drug is seen in central and eastern metropolitan centers. The production of Methamphetamine in the state of North Carolina had reached epidemic ranks, however, by the end of 2005 seizures by law enforcement agencies has helped to decrease the drug abuse. Marijuana is at the top of the list for drug abuse in the state. In Charlotte, the most common marijuana found in the area includes Canadian, Sinsemilla, and exotic hydroponic strains.

North Carolina does have a growing drug and alcohol abuse problem but with the treatment centers available, the chance for recovery is a welcome fact.
