South carolina Drug Rehab

south carolina Drug Rehab

South Carolina is both a transit point and a distribution area for illicit drugs along the eastern seaboard. Most drugs are transported into the state via the highways in both private and commercial vehicles. Heroin is not a major threat to South Carolina mainly because the availability and abuse are confined to urban areas and the coastal areas of the state. There is by contrast, a very significant problem with the abuse of the over-the-counter drug, oxycontin. Cocaine investigations and seizures are common place throughout the state of South Carolina. Methamphetamine trafficking and abuse, and the property crimes commonly associated with this drug, have become a significant threat to the state. In a situation all too common in the eastern United States, there has been a significant increase in ecstasy distribution throughout South Carolina. Like many other states, marijuana is the single most common drug of abuse by a wide range of users. For addicts seeking recovery in South Carolina, traditional outpatient programming is the most widely available option. Although residential and hospital programs do exist, they are small in numbers. Services do range however, from detoxification centers, to methadone and buprenorphine alternatives. Statewide, patients are able to access state-funded programs or facilities offering sliding fee scales, but the wait for these options can be lengthy. Treatment is often accessible more quickly to those who are able to fund their own recovery in South Carolina. Unlike other states, where the concentrations of rehabilitative services are concentrated in extremely high degrees in the larger centers, South Carolina's treatment and care options are smattered across the state. The largest target groups for whom care is available are DUI and criminal justice offenders, but specialized programs for men, adolescents and pregnant/postpartum women are also widely available. If you are looking for specific help in the state, please feel free to contact our toll free helpline and speak with us immediately.
