The opioid epidemic is one of the biggest health crises the United States faces, with recent numbers reflecting an increase in overdose deaths almost 800 percent higher than what was occurring back in the late nineties. These tragic numbers are due, in part, to routine and possible irresponsible opioid prescription-filling, but also to the prevalence of illicit use overall.
The year 2021 was one of the worst years for opioid-related deaths, with a reported 4,041 people in North Carolina alone losing their lives to overdose – the highest number on record. What is interesting is this does not correlate with the number of prescription opioids being filled, as the total amount in the general United States has decreased in the past four years.
What has increased is the use of fentanyl in drugs. Fentanyl not only increases batches, making it more cost-effective for manufacturers, but it makes the substance much more potent. Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin, making it a lethal drug if used inappropriately in any way.
Combining substances has always been dangerous, but when drugs are laced with this highly lethal drug, the outcomes can be disastrous – such is the case in the current stage of the opioid crisis.
These statistics reveal a desperate need for outreach and treatment so that individuals who are at risk of death from opioids can find the help they need and begin their journey back toward recovery and freedom.
Finding recovery in North Carolina
The first step to healing from drug addiction and being able to prevent overdose and further abuse is to get in touch with the right detox program providers. The benefits of drug detox are numerous, including:
Allowing the body time to detox so physical healing can manifest
Moving from detox of the body to recovery of the mind to provide a holistic, whole-body healing
Working closely with you to find a personalized treatment plan so that your needs and goals are met and recovery can be in your control
Regaining stability inside the home and in outside commitments including work and school responsibilities
Offering support for the entire family so that recovery feels encouraged and fostered by the people who know you best
Providing aftercare options so that recovery is long-lasting and relapse risk is reduced
Fortunately, service providers at Freedom Detox in North Carolina (located just outside of Charlotte) can provide all these benefits and more so that you can feel supported and successful in overcoming the challenges that detox and recovery entails.
