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.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
People in North Carolina know that addiction to Heroin keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 2,557 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 1,977 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse!
