Healing starts by finding the best treatment, and that treatment might be just a few hours away.

Opioid Overdose Deaths, Plagues No. Carolina Cities

Prescription pharmaceuticals, including opiates and benzodiazepines, are diverted and abused across the country at an alarming rate. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said in 2009 that North Carolina’s problem with the illicit use and distribution of pharmaceuticals was “widespread.” Counties throughout this East Coast state have been affected by the widespread misuse of prescription painkillers and heroin (opioids). These drugs are highly potent and attach to opiate receptors in the body. Prescription opiates are often used for pain relief but can lead to dependence with prolonged use or abuse. The DEA says the increase in demand for these drugs is due to their relative ease of access. The agency reports that popular diversion tactics in North Carolina include illegal sale and distribution by healthcare workers, prescription fraud, employee theft, doctor shopping and the Internet.
Methadone, morphine, codeine, hydrocodone and oxycodone are opiates of choice for people who want to divert or obtain these medications in North Carolina. The largest metropolitan areas of the state have been affected by this problem. The fallout from prescription painkiller abuse and diversion has devastated communities and puts stress on already-taxed law enforcement agencies, hospitals and courts. Officials say North Carolina also has a problem with the recreational use of opiates, among young people. The North Carolina State Risk Behavior Survey from 2007 shows that a quarter of high school students in the western part of the state had used prescription drugs recreationally at least once. This is noticeably greater than the 17 percent of students in the central and eastern parts of the state who reported such use. The report said the drugs most often used by these students were OxyContin, Percocet and Xanax.

North Carolina Reporting Record Increases in Heroin Deaths

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCD) reported that death rates from synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, increased 72.2% from 2014 to 2015. The report also confirms the dramatic increase in overdoses that first responders have seen.  During this same period, heroin deaths increased by 20.6%. South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee are on the top of the eleven states with the highest increases in heroin overdose deaths.
The number of people dying from heroin addiction and abuse has jumped up 584 percent.There is hope, and there is help out there, and we are here to help you find it.
