Raleigh & Cary, North Carolina Alcohol & Drug Rehab
The City of Raleigh has made it a clear priority to identify and eliminate substance abuse in their city and surrounding areas since 1990. In that year, the Raleigh City Council formed their Substance Abuse Advisory Commission which to this day meets every second Wednesday and invites public participation – both to learn and to comment. These are the very kind of proactive initiatives that allow government officials to remain abreast of the latest concerns and trends that their communities experience every day. The commission offers various annual programs including pill drop-off programs, drug education initiatives, a rally for drug and alcohol recovery and outreach programs.
Of course, total societal abstinence from drugs and complete prevention is not yet a reality and those living and working around Raleigh and Cary experience the ravages of drug abuse in the same way as other communities in North Carolina. This is especially true for heroin, a drug that has seen a resurgence in communities like Raleigh, across North Carolina and the United States.
As the numbers of those abusing drugs and alcohol increase, effective and comprehensive treatment, such as that provided by Fellowship Hall, has become more important than ever. Not only is the cost of treatment significantly outweighed by the consequential societal cost savings, but the intangible emotional benefits to the recovering addict, their families and their friends, is staggering.
What Can You Do?
As a community, we can change the lives of those who need it most. And while drugs and alcohol may seem like plagues that do not affect us, there are very few people that have not experienced the ill-effects – either directly or indirectly.
Fellowship Hall has been a leader in the North Carolina’s alcohol and drug treatment community since 1971 and remains a nationally known and respected treatment facility to this day. As part of our commitment to the community, we offer a one-day Family Education Program, held in the Fellowship Hall Outpatient Center on the first Friday of each month from 9:00am – 4:00pm at a cost of $70 per person. Families concerned about the welfare of a child, parent or loved one are encouraged to attend this symposium to understand the concepts of addiction, how to approach their loved one’s situation and the steps to seeking treatment.
