North Carolina Detox Centers

North Carolina is currently struggling with an opioid epidemic that has caused thousands of overdose deaths within recent years. Though marijuana and cocaine are the top two substances abused in the Tar Heel state, opioid abuse is costing the state millions in hospitalization, and continues to affect many North Carolina families and communities.

Marijuana and methamphetamine use is widespread throughout North Carolina on behalf of its many rural areas in which these substances are cultivated and produced. Alcohol abuse affects over six percent of residents, but only nine percent of these individuals receive addiction treatment. Those who live in North Carolina and suffer from addiction can overcome dependency on nearly any substance at a nearby detox center.

North Carolina detox centers offer treatments that help individuals safely and comfortably withdraw from drugs and alcohol. Quitting these substances on one’s own can be dangerous and life-threatening — especially for those heavily dependent on drugs or who have abused drugs for an extended period of time.

  • Over 91% of North Carolina residents who suffer from alcohol abuse do not receive treatment.


Causes & Signs of Drug Abuse

Drug abuse can be caused by factors including family history of addiction, mental health disorders, and spending time in environments surrounded by drugs and alcohol. Anyone can suffer from addiction, regardless of age, gender, and socioeconomic status.

Common signs of substance abuse:

  • Hiding drinking and drug use from others
  • Decline in work or school performance
  • Withdrawing from social activities
  • Stealing prescription drugs

Those who suffer from addiction tend to prioritize drinking and drug use above important life responsibilities associated with family, career, and education. They may devote less time to their favorite hobbies and interests, and spend more time obtaining, using, and recovering from drinking and drug use. North Carolina detox centers offer treatments that can help these individuals recover from addiction and turn their lives around.

Choosing From Many North Carolina Detox Centers

Finding a detox center can be overwhelming and difficult when you’re doing it alone without help. Let Addictions.com help you choose a detox center based on your individual preferences and treatment needs.

Follow these tips when researching detox centers in North Carolina.

  • Look into detox methods

    Choose a detox center that offers safe, effective treatments for your addiction type. Ask about detox and sobriety success rates, and about any potential risks and complications associated with treatment. For instance, if a detox center prescribes medications to treat your addiction, inquire about whether these medications also carry a high risk for addiction.

  • Treat addiction as a whole

    Detox is often the first stage of addiction treatment, and only treats the physical aspect of addiction. Many times, other treatments are needed to help you or your loved one overcome psychological causes of addiction, such as mental health disorders. Look for North Carolina detox centers that treat addiction as a whole using detox, counseling, and aftercare.

  • Consider location

    Determine whether it’s in your best interest to seek treatment near home, or in another part of North Carolina. If you have a large support system in the form of caring friends and family, choose a detox center nearest your home. If your addiction is being driven by toxic people and other negative influences, choose a detox center away from home so you can recover successfully without distractions.

  • Find affordable treatment

    The cost of drug and alcohol detox varies depending on location, treatment types, and amenities. Many North Carolina detox centers offer sliding scale payment systems so nearly any resident can afford treatment. All detox centers featured on Addictions.com accept most health insurance plans, and may offer other payment methods.
