In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 1,262 or 5.6% of North Carolina's 22,574 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 7,664 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 196,000 or 2.8% of North Carolina's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.3% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Heroin use and availability is reportedly low in North Carolina and is mainly confined to the major Central and Eastern metropolitan centers; however, developing information may suggest heroin trafficking has been underreported. Mexican drug-trafficking organizations transport small consignments of Mexican brown and black tar heroin from the Southwest Border states to North Carolina using private and commercial vehicles and express parcel services. Other Hispanic, Asian, and African-American traffickers transport South American, Southeast Asian, and Southwest Asian heroin from Miami, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Philadelphia by private vehicles and networks of commercial bus and airline.
It is a known fact that most individuals that are involved in drug use have a more likelihood to succeed in a residential drug rehab center than in an outpatient drug rehab. The amount of time that individuals spend in the programs varies from 28 days to a year. There are also many philosophies when it comes to determining what type of drug rehab is best for specific individuals.
