N&O – Funding cuts mean addicts get turned away

August 24th, 2013 by Chloe Morgan

nando-treatmentPlease read this article by Anastasia Frank of the N&O about addiction treatment in North Carolina, with a special focus on the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Centers and funding cuts.

About 7 percent of North Carolinians in 2012 reported an addiction to or abuse of alcohol or illicit drugs, according to the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. That’s about 683,000 people.

Over the past 13 years, the state has transferred treatment to the private sector. Now there are about 2,500 private facilities in the state that use donations, and federal and state money to provide detox, or medical treatments that remove drugs from the body over several days; outpatient treatment; and counseling.

Funded wholly or in part by the federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Fund (CFDA #93.959) as a project of the NC Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities & Substance Abuse Services.
