South Carolina may be one of the largest states in the US when it comes to being a transshipment state for illicit drugs as well as drug proceeds. Organization activity found in South Carolina spreads as far as to New York City, southern Florida, southern Texas, southern California, and Mexico. The major transportation lines ensuring that these drugs are dispersed throughout the US include where I-20, I-26, I-77, I-95 and I-85. No matter what route, drugs such as, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin have traveled through the state.

As stated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the major drug abuse problems are due to cocaine hydrochloride (HCI), crack cocaine, and methamphetamine. The problem with drug enforcement is that many of the investigations are taking officers across the state line into other bordering states. South Carolina has been seen a major drug abuse for years with cocaine and crack cocaine, however, today methamphetamine is slowly rising. In 2008 alone, over 100 clandestine meth labs were seized by law enforcement, which is a six percent increase over 2007.

Heroin at one time was only seen in the larger cities, however, it is now being seen at youth parties, and more teenagers are entering drug rehab centers for addiction to the drug. After heroin, marijuana is the favored drug for teens along with club drugs such as ecstasy. A report published by the Drug Enforcement Administration showed that sixteen percent of ninth graders and twenty percent of twelfth graders were using marijuana.

Children of course are not the only ones with drug abuse and alcohol abuse issues. Many adults are entering drug rehab facilities with addictions to prescription drugs. The major drug abuse with prescription drugs is Oxycontin and Vicodin. The problem comes in when individuals may not be able to receive prescriptions from their doctors, they begin to visit more than one doctor to get their prescription, or even resort to breaking into pharmacy’s to steal the drugs that desire.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration SAMHSA released a report in December of 2008 that showed in South Carolina that the most mentioned drugs at a treatment center as cocaine and marijuana with alcohol decreasing from previous months.

No matter what the type of addiction, South Carolina has several alcohol treatment centers as well as drug rehab facilities to help all individuals that are suffering from addiction. Some facilities cater to one drug whereas others work with individuals that may be addicted to more than one drug or a combination of alcohol and drug abuse.

In 2006, South Carolina had 37 drug and alcohol treatment centers with a mix between private for profit and private nonprofit. All facilities do receive some type of public funding to ensure that their facilities meet or rise above the health standards for treating addictions.

Residents in South Carolina have several choices when it comes to the type of treatment they prefer from inpatient to outpatient to residential. All work to ensure that each person can learn to live with the need of their addiction.
