Drug Rehab North Carolina

Choosing a drug rehab program in the state of North Caroling for a drug addiction can often be a complicated process. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has reported that the most successful substance abuse treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction is an inpatient residential drug rehab program that requires a stay of at least three months. There are other types of treatment options for drug addiction in the state of North Carolina, such as short term and outpatient drug rehab. Not many individuals that are coming out of the chaos of drug addiction can benefit from an outpatient drug rehabilitation program in which they are to return home every night to the environment where they may have used drugs or alcohol. In choosing a North Carolina drug rehab facility, the most important question that should be asked is about the long term success rate concerning former clients that have been treated for a drug addiction. Once you have located a North Carolina drug rehab with a proven track record for treating drug addiction, you can work in unison with a counselor there to put into place a treatment plan for your own unique situation. The cost of the North Carolina drug rehab center may have to be considered, but this should never be the determining factor in choosing a treatment facility for your drug addiction. An individual that is actively engaged in a drug addiction will rarely take the time to add up what they are spending, yet they will sometimes scrutinize the cost of a drug rehab center.

The cost of maintaining a drug addiction should not only be measured monetarily, but by the negative effects that arise as direct result of the substance abuse problem. Aside from the damage a drug addiction causes to personal relationships, a person who is struggling with a substance abuse problem often suffers from a substantial amount of damage to their self esteem. When an individual is actively engaged in a drug addiction, they will experience feelings of hopelessness, shame and guilt, because deep down they know what they are doing is wrong. Because the individual cannot stop using without the help of a drug rehab program, they will continue in their drug addiction; the disparity between their personal values and their current actions causes the addict to feel worse about themselves. The hallmark of any drug addiction is that an individual puts the craving for drugs above everything else in their lives and nothing else is held as sacredly. They will actively pursue their drug of choice to stave off the discomfort of withdrawal, until they receive the professional drug rehabilitation that they need in order to be free of drug addiction.

Most North Carolina drug rehab facilities are similar in nature. The first component of any quality drug rehab program is generally the detoxification process. The purpose of the drug detox is to safely manage and minimize drug withdrawal symptoms. An individual cannot mentally be available to participate in the treatment portion of a drug rehab program, until they are no longer experiencing physical discomfort. Most North Carolina drug rehab centers will use various forms of counseling to help the individual to get to the root of the substance abuse problem, and to delve into the reasons that they chose to use drugs in the first place. The goal of all drug rehabilitation programs is for the individual to choose sobriety over substance abuse as a result of the successful completion of a drug rehab facility.

North Carolina Drug Information and Drug Trafficking

The state of North Carolina has experienced a significant increase in drug trafficking activity, the majority of it due to the influx of Mexican nationals into the state. Since 1980, Raleigh's Hispanic population of immigrants has grown 1,189 percent, for an estimated 72,580 immigrants. Also, since 1980, Charlotte's Hispanic population of immigrants has grown 962 percent, for an estimated 77,092 immigrants. Greensboro's Hispanic immigrants grew 962 percent as well, for an estimated 62,210 immigrants. These figures are only estimates due to the difficulty in identifying the number of immigrants located throughout the state with illegal residency.

While the immigrants themselves may not be involved in trafficking, their presence allows traffickers from Mexico to hide within ethnic Mexican communities. They most commonly transport and distribute cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine. In addition, the rapid population growth in areas such as Raleigh has resulted in additional crime, including an increase in drug trafficking activity.

Drug information sources in North Carolina revel that it is a destination state for cocaine, as well as a staging and transshipment point to the more northern states along the Eastern Seaboard and in the mid-west, including Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. Cocaine is readily available and major traffickers take advantage of the state's interstate highways, which are major transshipment routes for cocaine being transported from source areas to other states. These major source areas are California, Arizona and Texas, with major sources of supply being traffickers based in Mexico. Cocaine is usually shipped in private or rental vehicles. Cocaine loads arriving in North Carolina by Mexican organizations are used to supply crack distribution networks that further present an enormous social threat to North Carolina's inner city communities.

Heroin use and availability is extremely low in North Carolina. Many areas of the state, such as Greenville, Durham and Rocky Mount, report that heroin abuse has been limited to an increasingly smaller population of older abusers.

Drug information on North Carolina shows that meth cases have been on the rise in urbanized parts of North Carolina, such as Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro and Asheville; however, rural communities in many counties of the western part of the state have experienced a surge in methamphetamine trafficking. Primary sources are located in West Coast states, principally California and Arizona, but a significant supply also comes from Mexican traffickers based in northern Georgia, e.g. Gainesville and Dalton.

Ethnic Mexican traffickers from these states have been identified as the clandestine manufacturers and sources of supply for methamphetamine in multi-pound quantities. In 2003, the Asheville Post of Duty targeted a large Gainesville-based Mexican methamphetamine trafficking group distributing over 40 pounds monthly to habitual users in western North Carolina. Smaller methamphetamine laboratories are a significant threat in the western portion of the state.

Although on average they produce only ounce quantities of meth, they are doubling in number over the recent years and pose a significant safety hazard for first responders. They contribute to crime and social problems in rural counties, and create a considerable resource drain on state and local governments.

DEA has joined in an aggressive campaign against meth lab "cooks." DEA is also actively advising local retail stores about federal laws which govern the sale of listed items, such as psuedoephedrine, iodine, and anhydrous ammonia. The sale of any of these items to someone who is known to or suspected of manufacturing methamphetamine is subject to arrest.

The Club Drugs that are most popular in North Carolina are MDMA, GHB and LSD. The use of Dangerous Drugs has increased in popularity across the state and is especially popular with college and high-school aged people. With more than 50 four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina, there is a large potential market for club drugs.

Ecstasy (MDMA) is also a problem, although not posing near the equivalent threat to most North Carolina communities as does cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. Domestic intelligence gleaned from local and state agencies in North Carolina indicate that Ecstasy use is on the rise, arriving from trafficking networks in New York, Florida and California.

Most prominently distributed in larger cities and along the coastal communities, such as beach cities attracting tourist populations, authorities are targeting ecstasy distributors and their out-of-state sources of supply. The Charlotte DO is targeting the rise of local Asian gangs trafficking MDMA and conducting money laundering for other trafficking groups. The majority of users of the drug are in the 15 to 25 year old category caught up in the "Rave" subculture. Law enforcement agencies have identified individuals with ties to the Pacific Northwest or West Coast regions of the country distributing bulk quantities of LSD.

As with the rest of the country, marijuana is one of the most prevalent drugs in North Carolina and its availability is increasing. One cause is the recent rise in the availability of Mexican marijuana due to an influx of Mexican trafficking organizations executing smuggling operations into the state directly from Mexico via containerized cargo transported on tractor-trailer trucks, particularly in the central portion (Piedmont) of the state.

In addition, marijuana is being smuggled in ever-larger amounts via campers, pickup trucks, and larger vehicles. Over the past five years, Domestic Cannabis Eradication Suppression Program authorities had seized domestically-grown marijuana in increasing quantities; specifically, in 2000 a total of 40,464 marijuana plants were seized, by 2001 the figure rose to 89,900 plants, and in 2002 there were 112,017 plants. However, in 2004, only 35,965 marijuana plants were seized.

When it comes to illegal pharmaceuticals, while not a prominent class of drugs for abuse like cocaine or marijuana, the illegal distribution and abuse of prescription narcotics is widespread through North Carolina. Abusers tend to "doctor shop" for pain medication, or as in one case, learn of a clinic or pharmacy freely distributing narcotics on demand without a prescription.

Such is the case of Medi-fare Pharmacy and the adjoining Grover Medical Clinic in Grover, NC. Before being shut down, Medi-fare was the number one dispenser of methadone in the country and the number four dispenser of OxyContin. Together, Medi-fare and the Grover Medical Clinic supplied abusers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Michigan and Virginia with tens of thousands of dosage units monthly.
