Call for Help (843) 264-7376
Most of South Carolina’s illegal drugs used to come from across the ocean by plane or boat. Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, increased air- and sea-port security has greatly restricted these direct imports.
Now, the cocaine, "black tar" heroin, marijuana, and meth in South Carolina are predominantly transported across the U.S.-Mexico border by car or truck. Since 2011, the ease of trafficking illegal drugs into the states by land has lead to an increase in substance abuse.
Despite the availability of drugs in South Carolina, it is possible to find relief from addiction. At The Treatment Center, we provide healing therapies for South Carolinians that are afflicted by illegal and prescription drug addiction, alcohol addiction, and co-occurring disorders.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Similar to the national trend, prescription drug abuse in South Carolina continues to grow. In an effort to take some prescription drugs out of illegal circulation, 37 organizations within South Carolina are participating in the DEA-organized National Drug Take Back Day. On this day, residents are invited to safely dispose of their unused prescription drugs at designated locations.
Methadone, diazepam, OxyContin, Lortab, and Xanax are among the most frequently abused prescription drugs in South Carolina. Of these, OxyContin is the most abused.
Despite the purity, availability, and low price, heroin was responsible for less than 2 percent of drug and alcohol admissions for state-run facilities from 2003-2012, according to the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services. However, this statistic does not include information about the heroin admissions at private treatment facilities.
Methamphetamine abuse steadily decreased from 2005-2009 for South Carolina; however, that trend is reversing. Admissions for meth use between 2003 and 2012 went from the lowest number, 241 in 2003 to the highest number of admissions, 771 in 2012.
Club drugs such as MDMA (ecstasy), GHB, PCP, LSD and ketamine are popular among teens and young adults, especially those that are into the "rave" scene. "Raves" are typically described as all-night dance parties or music festivals. Atlanta has become a hub for the distribution of MDMA and other drugs for South Carolinians due to low prices.
"Ice" is the form of meth that comes from Mexico. It is replacing the meth made in South Carolina because it is more potent and more addictive. A high demand on the Mexican variety also exists because meth labs in South Carolina are being shut down by law enforcement at increasing rates.
Marijuana is also widely available throughout the state. Most of the supply comes from the southern states and Mexico.
Alcohol has consistently made up over half of the drug and alcohol rehab admissions in South Carolina from 2003-2004 and from 2008-2012.
Drugs and alcohol affect every age group in South Carolina. Unfortunately, 13 percent of the total admissions for alcohol and drug treatment in the state between 2003 and 2012 were adolescents ages 12-17. This age group is at high risk of developing addiction later in life if treatment is not received early on.
Whether a South Carolina resident wants to recover from an addiction to alcohol, meth, cocaine, or another substance, we will provide the treatment they need.
