The use or abuse of alcohol often leads to an addiction, where alcohol treatment is required. The first treatment step generally involves detoxification, where the alcoholic must rid herself of the alcohol inside her body. Thereafter, depending on the severity of her case, inpatient or outpatient care is recommended.

Alcohol dependency has often adversely affected the country as a whole, however, on a state level, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health comprised their 2002-2003 estimates and 2005-2006 surveys to determine certain statistics for different states. The chart above depicts alcohol use for the state of North Carolina, which has consequently ranked among the lowest in the country.

Although North Carolina has ranked respectably in its alcohol usage rate, alcohol abuse and drug abuse still exists North Carolina. Per the 2006 NSSATS survey, North Carolina had 362 treatment facilities; 147 private non-profit; also 147 private for-profit organizations; and 1 owned or ran by a tribal government.

Since 2002, the amount of treatment facilities in North Carolina has increased by more than 80. This increase is primarily due to increases in both private for-profit and private non-profit facilities. In 2006, 300 of these facilities offered outpatient treatment; another 60 offered residential care; 34 offered an opioid treatment program, which is particularly effective in treating heroin addiction. Furthermore, 126 physicians and 48 treatment programs were authorized to provide buprenorphine care.

The 2006 NSSATS survey also shows North Carolina had a one-day client total of 25,845, with most being in outpatient treatment; 1,682 of the client total were below 18 years old. During the past 15 years, there has been a consistent decrease in treatment admissions for alcohol and changeable increases in cocaine and opiate (besides heroin) treatment admissions. Admissions requiring alcohol-only treatment decreased from over 40 percent in 1992 to less than 20 percent in 2006. However, admissions requiring drug treatment increased from 15 percent in 1992 to 35 percent in 2005.

Receiving treatment for drug or alcohol dependence is perhaps the most crucial stage in the “getting clean” process. In North Carolina, the rate for individuals needing but not receiving treatment has been below the national rates; in 2005-2006 North Carolina’s rates were among the lowest in the country for all age groups except for individuals age 26 and older. However, the rates for individuals requiring drug-only treatment and not receiving it were among the highest in the country for individuals 26 and older.

Drug abuse and psychological disorders often go hand in hand. For North Carolina, the rates for serious psychological distress (SPD) and major depressive episodes (MDE) have been at or below the national rates, and were among the lowest in the country for individuals 18 to 25. Many individuals suffering from psychological disorders that were related to substance abuse sought help, tripling North Carolina’s treatment admissions statistics since 1992. Let’s hope this quest for psychological treatment continues, and that the hunt for drug treatment follows.
