Drug and Alcohol Addiction In Raleigh, North Carolina

The capital city of North Carolina, Raleigh’s population is second only to Charlotte. However, many of the drug issues that Raleigh faces are even greater than those faced by the larger city. Sat in the center of Wake County, Raleigh is home to the majority of the county’s population.

Naturally, as with any metropolitan area, this makes it a popular place for the trade and use of illicit drugs. The Opioid epidemic, though prevalent, is second to Raleigh’s most continuous danger: alcohol. Those looking to stop drinking, or help a friend or relative stop drinking, may find assistance in inpatient or outpatient treatment centers or groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and/or SMART Recovery™.

Alcoholism, A Steady Danger In Raleigh

Home to nearly half the population of Wake County, Raleigh sees its fair share of tragedy; a local CBS affiliate reported that “Deaths from impaired driving increased by 18.4% in 2020 from 2019.” But much of that tragedy is avoidable. Making the choice to not drink and drive can literally save lives. If you find that you have trouble resisting the temptation of drinking and driving, or just drinking in general, then it is possible you’ve developed a dependency. If you’re afraid this is the case, but not sure what you should do, contact a treatment provider immediately.

The Opioid Crisis In Raleigh

The people of North Carolina have much to endure when it comes to Opioids. On average, 3 people in North Carolina die every day from Opioids. That includes Heroin, common prescriptions, and synthetic Opioids. Wake County saw a greater number and percentage than those who died in Mecklenburg County, the largest population in North Carolina. The following statistics are from the North Carolina Department Of Health And Human Services (NCDHHS).



During 2020-2021, assistance programs provided over 8,000,000 clean syringes.



During 2020-2021, assistance programs conducted over 3,000 tests for Hepatitis C and HIV.



In 2021, NCDHHS announced it was giving “$4.4 million in funding for 15 mobile units to provide screening, assessment, treatment, primary care and recovery support services.”

Synthetic Marijuana Has Emerged

A crisis that has been affecting the Midwest has reared its head just outside of Raleigh. In Durham County, at least 2 people were hospitalized due to Synthetic Marijuana that caused them to bleed out through urine, coughing, and even the eyes and ears. Many, especially many young people, may think that Synthetic Marijuana is a safer, more legal, or more convenient alternative to organic Marijuana. Synthetic Marijuana is none of those things; the price of a “clean” drug test (provided the drug test doesn’t screen for Synthetic Marijuana in the first place) could be death.

Recovery In Raleigh

Seeking recovery in your city can be a difficult situation. On one hand, you’re in a community you know, surrounded by people who can support you. You can even enter an outpatient program so that you can live at home and maintain normalcy in your life. However, sometimes, recovering in the place where your addiction was born can be too much temptation. That is why so many find it helpful to travel for rehab, go through an inpatient program, and create a new support network.

If you or someone you love is suffering from addiction but doesn’t know where to turn, contact a treatment provider. They can answer questions and help you find a path to long-term recovery.
