Columbia, South Carolina, is home to approximately 116,278 people. It is found in Richland County and is around 85 miles outside of Charlotte and 65 miles outside of Augusta. During the 1990s, Columbia's population grew by about 19%. Today, it continues to grow, albeit at a very small rate of less than 1%. The city is, unfortunately, also home to a significant substance abuse problem. This is reflected in the fact that both property crime and violent crime levels are higher in this city than the state average. Studies have demonstrated a positive correlation between these types of crimes and substance abuse or addiction.

The Columbia Approach to Addiction


Columbia officials are particularly concerned with regards to the perception of young people in terms of how easy it is to access illicit substances. As a result of this, there has been a significant crack down on those who are trafficking, manufacturing, and distributing drugs. At the same time, the city authorities have attempted to decriminalize, to a certain degree, substance abuse. They have included two drug courts in the Fifth Judicial Circuit, one for adults and one for juveniles. The goal of these courts is to ensure that those who commit nonviolent offenses and have a substance abuse problem are provided with the opportunity to seek treatment through detox and rehab facilities rather than spending time in prison. This form of intervention has proven to be very successful.


At the same time, the city wants to increase the availability of detox and rehab facilities for those who have not been in contact with the law. By signposting to these facilities and removing financial barriers to access, it is hoped that more people will be able to get the help that they need with regards to substance abuse.
