Finding a North Carolina Addiction Treatment Program

When looking for an opioid addiction treatment program, it’s essential to pick one that fits your situation. You are more likely to relapse if the treatment program does not fully meet your needs. 

 

Here are some factors to consider while researching your options for opioid abuse treatment: 

 

  • How severe is your opioid misuse?
  • How long have you abused opioids?
  • Will medical insurance help pay for treatment?
  • Will your treatment need to be considered medically necessary?
  • Are you willing to travel to find the right opioid addiction treatment for you?

North Carolina Drug and Alcohol Addiction Statistics

Although the number of prescription opioids has dropped significantly in North Carolina over the years, a noticeable jump in overdose deaths occurred statewide in 2018 and continues to worsen. 

 

  • Over 9 North Carolinians died each day from a drug overdose in 2020. 
  • Between 2000 and 2020, more than 28,000 North Carolinas died from preventable drug overdoses. 
  • The rate of overdose deaths among North Carolina residents was 33.4 per 100,000 people in 2021. 

The Evolving Opioid Epidemic

The national opioid epidemic started in the 1990s when pharmaceutical companies promised the medical community that opioids were not addictive. This caused many healthcare professionals to increase their opioid prescription rates. 

 

Increased prescription rates lead to an increase in opioid misuse across the country, both for prescription opioids and illicit opioids. It was then discovered the true risk for abuse opioids carry.  

 

In 2017, the Department for Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency. And announced their plan to combat the opioid crisis. 

 

While the number of prescriptions given by healthcare professionals has decreased since 2017, people are finding new ways to obtain and misuse illicit opioid drugs. 

 

Now several states, including Ohio, have reported issues with illegal opioids such as fentanyl-laced heroin being shipped into the country from Mexico and China. 

 

Now, more than ever it is important to know the abuse risks associated with opioids, especially opioids obtained illegally.
