North Carolina Rehabs

North Carolina, famous for its beautiful coastline and downhome bar-b-que offers a quiet, country charm for residents. The moderate climate is a draw for many, making it a travel destination. As home to the Wright brothers, and their first historic flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina is rife with history. Whether visiting the mountains or the shore, there are many activities to enjoy in this beautiful state.

Along with its rolling countryside and indelible charm, North Carolina harbors a dark secret, as well. Opioid abuse is steadily on the rise. Prescription misuse turns quickly into heroin abuse when people are no longer able to get pharmaceuticals. Chemically, oxycodone, fentanyl and other opioid prescriptions are the same type of drug. They each modify the way the brain processes pain and pleasure. Opioids also illicit drug-seeking impulses. Geographical location makes North Carolina a hotbed for drug trafficking. While North Carolina has some of the steepest penalties for drug transport, enforcement has been inconsistent, making way for a rise in heroin trade throughout the state. With this level of access and the growing prescription crisis, residents are at great risk of falling prey to addiction.

For those suffering from prescription addiction or any other type of addiction, help is available. Rehabs in North Carolina are available statewide, providing the best treatment for you or someone you love. Finding the right treatment and ongoing services can make the difference between life and death.

Causes & Signs of Drug Abuse

Drug dependency can develop quickly or gradually. Sometimes the signs and symptoms can be confused with other illnesses or disorders. When someone is suffering from a chronic illness or recovering from surgery, dependence upon pain medications can happen quickly. Knowing the warning signs to look for can help diagnose an addiction.

  • Increased tolerance
  • Secretive behaviors
  • Personality changes
  • Difficulty stopping
  • Using other substances

If you have a nagging feeling that something is not right, trust that intuition. Drug addiction can affect the healthiest, most well-adjusted individuals, making them unrecognizable even to close family.

Choosing From Many North Carolina Rehabs

With so many options available, finding the right rehab center for you or a loved one can be tough. The first step is to look at which centers are available in your area. Secondly, consider which services are available. While researching, consider the following options:

  • Specific Interests

    Some rehabilitation centers offer art or music therapy. Exercise and wellness may also be of benefit. While an addiction is present and good treatment is critical, fostering healthy interests can be of great benefit to anyone new in recovery.

  • Religious Beliefs

    It is important to consider the personal beliefs of an individual or family when seeking treatment options. Many recovery programs are faith-based. Some are more spiritually focused. Still others are completely secular. Looking at which methods and treatments are used in each facility can help patients feel a greater sense of ease and comfort going into the recovery experience.

  • Family or Lifestyle Considerations

    Finding a treatment facility to treat addiction while offering familial support is also of great concern. Recovery continues long after the drug or alcohol use has stopped. Working on the mental and emotional changes that occurred during active addiction may take many years. Thus, finding a network of support to help family and friends and ease adjustment back into a clean and sober way of life is critical for success.
