North Carolina

Frequently, one of the questions that people have when they are seeking treatment for an addiction or alcoholism is whether or not they are addicted or dependent.  In North Carolina, there are treatment programs available for both kinds of drug and alcohol problems, but understand whether or not you have an addiction problem or a dependence problem can make a crucial different to what kind of treatment program you should seek.

According to diagnostic requirements a person with a dependence issue is someone who uses a drug or alcohol occasionally, but does not use it habitually.  In other words, you don’t need to use every day, but you use it often enough that it has an impact on your life.  You may be someone who smokes a few joints on the weekend, but you don’t smoke every day.  However, the impact on your life by using even occasionally can be negative.  For instance, you may find that your relationships suffer or you may have problems paying your bills because you are spending too much money on drugs or buying alcohol.

However, if you use or drink every day, you may actually have an addiction problem.  Addiction is even more invasive.  People with addiction problems use or drink every day.  While they may not be stumbling drunks, they find that if they skip using or drinking, their body actually craves the drug and they feel driven to go back to drinking.  If you have an addiction problem, not only does it affect you, but it also affects your job, your family and your finances.  It interferes with your life to the point where almost every problem you encounter in your life can be traced back to using drugs or alcohol.  And you may find that you are not limited to just one drug of choice.  You may like to use more than one drug or a combination of drugs, plus alcohol.

In-patient programs are designed to deal with the special issues that come with more pervasive addiction.  In-patient programs include detox, along with group and individual counseling.  In contrast, out-patient programs may not include a detox program, but also include group and individual drug counseling sessions.

If you or a loved one is having an issue with drugs or alcohol, there are many treatment programs available in North Carolina that can help you.  Whether you need an intensive in-patient program or an out-patient program, there is help available for you.
