Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina. Due to its metropolitan status, and its popularity as a commercial hub, it attracts a lot of people. Sadly, where there are large groups of people, there is also a spike in illicit drugs. Fortunately enough, both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers exist in and around the area to meet the growing need.

The Opioid Epidemic In Charlotte

Percentages can be deceiving. Charlotte’s death rate from Opioids has ranked at “only” eighth in the state. However, due to its high population, it actually regularly has the highest number of deaths every month. Mecklenburg County, which contains Charlotte, has seen a growing number of deaths year after year.

Nearly half of overdose deaths have been from prescription Opioids. While there were twice as many deaths from prescription drugs as Heroin, the number of deaths from prescription Opioids have remained fairly consistent, whereas Heroin deaths have seen a spike.

Alcoholism In Charlotte

Alcoholism has taken thousands of lives in the Charlotte area. Across North Carolina, there were over 11,000 car crashes that involved the influence of alcohol. Of those, at least 372 of them resulted in at least 1 fatality. On average, 41% of fatal car crashes in Mecklenburg County have been alcohol-related, well above a 30% average seen across the state.

Many don’t view the repercussions of alcohol as something they need to worry about. Despite it being legal, however, it can lead to more addictions, injuries, and deaths than any other substance.

Charlotte Addiction Statistics



Mecklenburg County overdose fatalities increased 32% after the COVID-19 crisis began.

Other Drugs In Charlotte

Although the Opioid crisis has taken over the headlines, and alcohol causes more addictions in Charlotte than any other substance, other drugs (like Cocaine and Meth) remain a major problem.

Synthetic Marijuana has also started striking at the country in many areas, such as Charlotte. In North Carolina, people have been hospitalized and have even died after smoking Synthetic Marijuana. The drug, a plant material coated in various chemicals, finds its way onto shelves of local smoke shops by being labeled as “not for human consumption.”

Recovery In Charlotte

Many people suffering from addiction want to look for recovery clinics near them. Depending on the level of treatment, they can still maintain a sense of normalcy in their lives. Working through a regular or Intensive Outpatient Program means they can still keep their job and stay in their own home. Some, however, prefer to fully remove themselves from their environment.

Knowing where you can go to get your drug of choice is often too much temptation for many in rehabilitation.  That’s why out-of-state recovery has grown in popularity. Looking for a new environment, with different weather, and surrounded by different scenery, can be a strong stimulus in getting clean. If you or a loved one is battling addiction, there is help available. Contact a treatment provider to discuss nearby treatment options.
