Although marijuana is used more than other drugs, cocaine is the most serious problem in South Carolina – including crack.
The cocaine high – euphoria, excitement and a feeling of physical strength – only lasts for about 20 minutes. During that time the blood pressure goes up and the heart beats faster. Most of the cocaine deaths are caused by cardiac arrest or seizure, then the person stops breathing. Also, a study determined that cocaine deaths might actually be 20 times what are reported.
When the 20-minute high is over, the cocaine user feels anxious, depressed, exhausted and paranoid. To avoid those feelings they either have to use it again or take tranquilizers and sedatives.
Heroin is also a problem in South Carolina – it used to be mostly available in the cities, but it is now available in suburban and rural environments and is being experimented with by a lot of young people.
Other popular drugs that might need addiction help are methamphetamine and club drugs like MDMA ‘ecstasy.’ MDMA is known as a ‘club drug’ because it’s frequently used in clubs, at parties and raves. These drugs also affect the heart rate and blood pressure. They can be quite dangerous.
In South Carolina, addiction help is available for cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and club drugs.
South Carolina Addiction Help for Prescription Drug Addiction, Abuse or Dependency
Prescription drug abuse and addiction is a growing problem. Prescription painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin are highly addictive. In fact, many people get addicted by just taking them as prescribed by their doctor after an injury, illness or surgery. Then they can’t stop.
Others take them without ever having had a prescription. In fact, so many people are using prescription drugs, South Carolina addiction facilities often have more clients getting help for prescription drugs than for all other drugs combined.
If prescription drugs are your problem, it’s important to find a drug addiction treatment program experienced with them. Getting off them can be extremely difficult, and medically dangerous.
There are such facilities available in South Carolina. Addiction help is available even for those on prescription drugs.
Our experienced counselors can advise you on finding help for prescription drug addiction and abuse.
No matter what your problem – alcohol, street drugs or prescription drugs – we can help you.

What Does Good Addiction Help in South Carolina Consist Of?
Some are relatively short-term and are done on an out-patient basis. They get the person off alcohol or drugs, and they work with them a little bit to ensure they don’t get back on them. But, these are generally not the most successful.
It takes a long time to become an alcoholic or drug addict, and the problems the person has that led them to alcohol or drugs in the first place have usually been going on for a while.
In order for the person to have the best chance at staying off alcohol or drugs after their alcohol or drug addiction program, they need to work with someone who can find out what those problems were, and find real solutions to them.
It’s one thing for the person to say “Well, I just won’t let that bother me anymore,” or “Other people have worse situations,” or “I’ll just have to live with it.” But that’s not enough. If the person was capable of doing that, if that was a solution for them, then they wouldn’t have gotten into alcohol or drugs in the first place.
So, it can take a while to find real solutions. Solutions that will allow the person to be happy with their lives and themselves.
The most successful alcohol and drug addiction help in South Carolina, are the facilities that really get down to the bottom of the problems.
