1 DIRECTORY OF ALCOHOL & OTHR DRUG SERVICES in Greenville County & Surrounding Areas A Directory for Friends, Families & Professionals Revised: October 2010

2 This brochure maintained by: The Phoenix Center Greenville County Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (GCCADA) Substance abuse and dependency are problems that affect people of all ages, races, religions, and classes. The consequences of drug abuse and dependency are costly and devastating to the individual, the family, and the community. This directory is comprised of agencies and organizations that are committed to providing alcohol and other drug abuse education, prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery services to the Greenville community and surrounding areas. Although the primary philosophical approach and treatment modality presented in this document represent the state of the art in scientific and medical research, The Phoenix Center actively encourages partnership with all segments of the community which are able to demonstrate a positive impact on this pervasive problem. This includes a willingness to respect diversity of thought and the right of other persons and organizations to maintain and act upon opposing philosophical positions and viewpoints with respect to substance abuse treatment, including those held by some faith-based organizations which may believe, teach, or see substance abuse as some level of willful behavior. In encouraging this community partnership, officers, staff, and volunteers of The Phoenix Center will display appropriate levels of courtesy and respect toward community members and organizations that represent such opposing viewpoints and ideas. As differential philosophies of approach to this problem are as diverse as the individual beliefs upon which they are based, available space prohibits their delineation. Accordingly, anyone interested in such an alternative approach is strongly encouraged to ask questions of or about the organization prior to beginning or submitting to any treatment or training protocol. Duplication and use of information in this document is permitted. We encourage readers to learn more about alcohol and other drug abuse problems and identify helpful services through this directory. Questions, comments, or requests for additional information or copies of this publication may be made by contacting The Phoenix Center at (864) Information in this directory is updated regularly, so be sure to review it as often as you like. If you know of any organization or service that should be added, please feel free to let us know. The Phoenix Center 1400 Cleveland Street Greenville, South Carolina (864)

5 Part 1: An Introduction to Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse Problems and Responses Overview Substance abuse (the abuse of alcohol and other drugs) is among the most pervasive health and social problems in the United States today. Substance abuse increases: Instances of accidents, especially in motor vehicles The incidence of illness, disability, and early death Disruptions of family life and household responsibilities The incidence of domestic violence, sexual assault, and suicide The commission of crimes, including homicide. Many people who drink or take drugs occasionally do not experience problems from using these substances, although it is possible to have a serious injury or even to die from a single episode of alcohol or drug use. However, with heavier, more frequent use, they are more likely to experience problems with health, family members, friends, school, work or the legal system. Substance abuse refers to a pattern of use that results in health consequences or impairment in social, psychological and occupational functioning. While substance abuse concerns problems in living, dependence (addiction) involves compulsive use, craving and increased tolerance. Abuse, addiction and the consequences appear in every socioeconomic stratum, educational level, geographic region and ethnic and racial group. Of the 218 million people in the United States age 12 and older, 48% were using alcohol in Of those people, about 21% engaged in high-risk binge drinking (five or more drinks) and 6% were high-risk heavy drinkers. In 2001, 13 percent of the population, 17 million Americans, used illicit drugs. It is estimated that 15-20% of persons who have used alcohol or other drugs will become dependent at some point over their lifetimes. In Greenville County, a 1996 study estimated that 35% of the population of 370,000 uses alcohol regularly. In the year 2000, it was estimated that 30,451 Greenville County citizens age 12 and over met the diagnostic criteria (DSM IV) for alcohol or drug dependency (addiction) or abuse, and were in need of treatment. This is a larger number than either Charleston or Richland counties. It is difficult to put a monetary value on human suffering and loss of life associated with alcohol and other drug problems, but other, more direct costs, add up to big dollars. It is estimated that alcohol and drug abuse in the United States cost society nearly $246 billion in Alcohol abuse accounted for 60% of the total, and drug abuse accounted for the remaining 40%. Most of the costs are borne by the government and the individual substance abusers, although families, businesses, the health care system and society also share the burden. Alcohol and illegal drugs present special risks for young people. The number of potential years of life lost to alcohol and drug related injuries are as significant as those lost to heart disease and cancer. Research shows that treatment not only reduces substance abuse, but reduces crime as well. Criminal activity declines by 23 to 38% following substance abuse treatment. Each dollar spent on alcohol and other drug abuse treatment saves Americans $7 by reducing or avoiding costs related to criminal justice, health care and welfare. Despite these findings, there is a serious gap between the need for and the provision of treatment services. In 1997, 13.9 million people were in need of treatment for addiction (dependency) but only 2.7 million received treatment services. 5

6 Alcohol and Alcoholism (Addiction to Alcohol) Description Alcohol is a depressant drug that slows the activity of the brain and the spinal cord. It is a colorless liquid with a sharp, burning taste and is known chemically as ethyl alcohol. What is Alcoholism? Alcoholism is a disease characterized by periodic uncontrolled use of alcohol. Few families or friends of alcoholics are, on their own, able to understand why the person just can t stop drinking. The alcoholic can t stop drinking because he or she depends on alcohol to function. The alcoholic is addicted to alcohol. Alcoholism is a treatable disease. Four Characteristics of Alcoholism 1) Alcoholism carries an overwhelming urge to repeat the experience of getting high on alcohol. At times, this urge will go beyond the strength of a person s willpower to do otherwise, no matter how much risk seems to be involved. 2) The urge to drink becomes the number one priority in the alcoholic s life. 3) The urge to get high with alcohol becomes linked to all other aspects of life. 4) An alcoholic has the incurable disease for life. As time passes with sobriety, the urge reduces in intensity and frequency but can return at any time. What causes alcoholism? Experts believe that genetic factors make certain people more vulnerable to alcoholism. Environmental, cultural and psychological factors can also contribute to the development of the disease. Scope of the Problem Approximately seven out of ten adults drink alcohol, and of these about one of ten is an alcoholic. One-third of all preventable deaths in the U.S. are related to the use of this drug. About one-half of all highway deaths are alcohol-related. What can an alcoholic do? Although alcoholism cannot be cured, alcoholics can recover and can return to a normal way of life. Recovery depends on total abstinence from alcohol and other drugs. Those suffering from alcoholism need to face and accept the truth that alcohol has become a problem and that drinking cannot be controlled. They must be willing to get help. Many community resources are available to address this problem. Use this directory to find help or call the Community Information and Referral Line at (864) for more information. Treatment Treatment for alcoholism is available in many forms depending on individual needs. Most common are detoxification, inpatient and/or residential treatment, and outpatient treatment depending on individual needs. Effective treatment may include individual, group and family counseling, community based support group involvement (e.g, Alcoholics Anonymous), and education about alcoholism to address the person s physical, mental and emotional needs, which are all affected by addiction. Other Drug Abuse and Addiction Drugs are natural and synthetic chemical substances which can be used to affect a person physically, emotionally, and/or behaviorally. They can be legal (prescription, over-the-counter, including alcohol) or illegal. Used properly to treat a medical problem, drugs protect against disease, correct imbalances in body chemistry and treat many health problems. Definitions Drug abuse is a pattern of drug use that includes: (1) Continued use despite knowledge that on-going or occasional social, occupational, psychological or physical problems are caused or exacerbated by the drug use; and/or (2) the repeated use in physically hazardous situations (such as driving while under the influence). Drug dependence or addiction is a physical and/or psychological need or compulsion to continue to use drugs despite 6

7 serious results. It is marked by tolerance (a need for an ever-increasing amount to achieve the same effect), and an inability to control or limit use. Some people abuse drugs or alcohol. Abuse is the use of a chemical substance, legal or illegal, which results in an individual s physical, mental, emotional or social impairment. Other people suffer from a more serious chemical dependency (addiction). A simple definition of dependency is if the use of alcohol or other drugs is causing any continuing disruption in an individual s physical, personal, social, spiritual or economic life and the individual does not stop using, he or she is chemically dependent (addicted). Substance abuse and dependency are quite different. Because dependency can be complicated, it is extremely important that the individual be assessed to determine the correct level of treatment or counseling which is needed. See page 10 for a description of treatments available. Scope of Problem There are no typical drug abusers. They may be young, old, professionals, unemployed, rich or poor. Studies say many who abuse one substance will abuse at least one other. People who are abusing or are addicted may face serious problems health problems (liver, brain, kidney damage/failure), overdose (possibly fatal), accidents, legal problems, poor work performance or job loss, financial difficulties, and family problems. Why do people start? Generally, most people who begin to abuse drugs are either trying to eliminate negative feelings or create pleasurable feelings with their drugs of choice. Eventually, the drugs stop working and the substance abuse becomes a much more serious problem, in addition to the original problem or uncomfortable feeling. People often deny the seriousness of their problem with drugs in hopes of being able to continue to use without further difficulty. What Can A Substance Abuser Do? Although addiction cannot be cured, addicts can recover and can return to a normal way of life. Recovery depends on total abstinence from drugs, including alcohol. Those suffering from addiction need to face and accept the truth that their drug use has become a problem and cannot be controlled. They must be willing to get help. Many community resources are available to address this problem. Use this directory to find help or call the Community Information and Referral Line at (864) for more information. Treatment Drug abuse and addiction can be arrested with proper treatment. Treatment settings can include detoxification, inpatient/residential treatment and outpatient treatment depending on individual needs. Components of treatment may include individual, group and family counseling, community based support group involvement (e.g. Narcotics Anonymous), and education about addictions to address the person s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs, which are all affected by addiction. Stages of Alcohol and Other Drug Use Experimental Use/Contact Stage Person tries out alcohol and/or other drugs because of curiosity about their effects. For many people, alcohol and/or other drug use stops or remains at this level. Recreational Use Stage Person uses alcohol and/or other drugs to alter mood in friendly settings and at parties, to be sociable. Regular Use Stage Person uses alcohol and/or other drugs in regular pattern over period of time. Use can be situational (to celebrate; for stress or depression) or spree/binge type. Excessive Use Stage User spends a great deal of time, energy and money on getting and using alcohol and/or other drugs. Alcohol and/or other drug use may be solitary or take place in social situations where substance use is the central activity or main reason for the get-together. Preoccupation with the quality and effects of alcohol and/or other drugs becomes noticeable. Psychological and physical impairments become apparent. Daily functioning is noticeably affected. Responsibilities are neglected. Relationships with others may become strained and go downhill rapidly. 7

8 Family members (enablers) may find themselves making excuses for drug users or taking over his or her tasks. Many heavy drinkers who do not consider themselves alcoholics are in this stage. Dependency Stage Person uses alcohol and/or other drugs to hold off withdrawal symptoms, which occur after development of physical and psychological dependence. Individual s entire perspective for dealing with reality is controlled by the alcohol or drug of choice. Warning Signs Alcoholism Decide to take only one drink or to stop on their own but then continue to drink until drunk. Feel guilty about drinking, but have never really tried to stop. Spend a lot of time planning occasions to drink. Are drunk during important times (work, school, family time). Give up hobbies and outside interests due to drinking. Build up a tolerance so they have to drink more to get drunk. Get physically or emotionally ill when they stop drinking. Begin drinking to relieve or avoid getting physically or emotionally ill. Are frequently arguing with relatives and friends about their drinking. Know all of the above is happening and still keep drinking. Other Drug Dependence (Addiction) Decide to use only one time or to stop on their own but then continue to use until they lose control. Feel guilty about using drugs, but have never really tried to stop. Spend a lot of time planning how to get and use their drug of choice. Are under the influence of drugs during important times (work, school, family times). Give up their hobbies and outside interests due to their drug use. Build up a tolerance so they have to use more of their drug of choice to get the effect that they want. Get physically or emotionally ill when they stop using. Begin using to relieve or avoid getting physically or emotionally ill. Are frequently arguing with relatives and friends about their drug use. Know all of the above is happening and still keep using drugs. CAGE Screen Test* Brief Interventions can start by asking four simple questions. If a person answers yes to two or more, there is an 88% chance that the person has an alcohol problem. (CAGE stands for Cut down, Annoyed, Guilty, Eye-opener.) C: Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking? A: Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking? G: Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking? E: Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning (an eye-opener) to steady Your nerves or to get rid of a hangover? *J.A. Ewing, Detecting Alcoholism: The CAGE Questionnaire: JAMA, 252: , CAGE is an internationally used assessment instrument for identifying alcoholics. It is particularly popular with primary care givers. 8

9 A Self-Test Do you have a problem with alcohol and/or other drugs? Check all those statements below which describe you. I frequently (once or twice a day) find that my conversation centers on drinking experiences and/or drug using. I drink or get high to deal with tension or physical stress. Most of my friends or acquaintances are people I drink or get high with. I have lost days of work or school because of drinking or other drug use. I have had the shakes when going without drinking or using drugs. I regularly get high or take a drink upon awakening, before eating, or while at work or school. I have been arrested for Driving Under the Influence of a substance. I have periods of time that I cannot remember. Family members think drinking or other drug use is a problem for me. I have tried to quit using substance but cannot (A good test is voluntarily going for six weeks without substances and not experiencing physical or emotional distress). I often double up and/or gulp drinks or use more drugs than others at parties. I often drink or take drugs to get ready for social occasions. I regularly hide alcohol/drugs from those close to me so that they will not know how much I am using. I often drink or get high by myself. My drinking or use of drugs has led to conflicts with my friends or family members. Scoring: If you checked as many as three of the above statements you should be suspicious about the way you use substances. If you checked as many as five, you may have the beginnings of a problem and should start looking for some kind of help. If you checked more than five, you should talk about your use of substances with a professional counselor.

Keller & Lawrence G. Ritt, 1982, p Responses to Abuse: Prevention, Intervention and Treatment Prevention In the United States, prevention is chiefly focused on efforts to prevent the onset of first use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Consequently, it is aimed primarily (although not exclusively) at children. To this end, substance abuse education curricula are in place in the nation s public schools; the Partnership for a Drug-Free America places informational public service announcements in the media; the federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention supports an array of programs operated by local community-based organizations; and the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information provides free information to the public about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Parents are important targets in many prevention programs. These programs try to inform parents about substance abuse and give them the skills to foster changes in those behaviors that are risk factors for children s future alcohol and other drug use. Intervention Family intervention is a process, which helps train and guide loved ones and friends in how to approach someone with an alcohol or other drug problem. It is designed to enable the alcoholic / addict to recognize and accept treatment for their chemical dependency. The process includes individual, group, and rehearsal sessions to prepare the team in the do s, and most importantly, the don ts of confrontation. It is a loving and caring approach and quite effective when done properly. Professional guidance by a trained chemical dependency interventionist is recommended. 9

10 Other intervention efforts are designed to reach substance users before they become dependent (addicted). For that reason, intervention services are frequently part of referral networks for troubled behaviors, are built into prevention and/or treatment programs as a separate component, or, in comprehensive substance abuse programs, are one of many services provided. Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are one example of the intervention concept. Other examples include special after-school and alternative school programs aimed at high-risk youth. These intervention programs help children change course before they become dependent. Student assistance, peer counseling, and student health services are among the most popular types of intervention services for youth. First offender and special programs for those that are charged with driving under the influence are examples of intervention programs for youth and adults sponsored by the criminal justice system. Again, with the added outside pressure of court-mandated participation, a proportion of nondependent users are able to change their substance-abusing behavior. Treatment Despite efforts to prevent and intervene with substance use before it becomes a problem, many adults and adolescents become addicted to alcohol and other drugs. Their addictions and the behavior that accompanies them have a variety of negative impacts on their lives and seriously impair their capacity for positive functioning in the family, at school, at work or in the community. Diagnostic criteria for addiction include physical effects, such as marked tolerance and symptoms of withdrawal, and psychological consequences, including craving and a mental focus on obtaining and using the drug of choice. Addiction fuels destructive behavior patterns that are exceedingly difficult to break. Few people addicted to alcohol and other drugs can simply stop using on their own, no matter how strong their inner resolve. Most need one or more courses of structured substance abuse treatment to recover from their dependence on alcohol and other drugs. Substance abuse treatment programs differ in philosophy, setting, duration, and approach. Most involve some combination of detoxification, rehabilitation, continuing care and relapse prevention. As in other areas of medical treatment, there are several different levels of care, which allow individuals to be treated at the most appropriate level of intensity. It is important to provide the most appropriate mix of services and settings for each client based on an assessment of individual needs and cultural relevance. Detoxification is the therapeutic, medically supervised withdrawal from the addictive effect of alcohol or other drugs. Physiologically, detoxification is usually complete within a few days. Craving and other physical and psychological symptoms of addiction, however, may persist for weeks or longer. Medications can reduce some of the discomforts of withdrawal or minimize medical complications. Detoxification stabilizes clients and allows them to move on to the next step of their recovery, but has little lasting impact in and of itself. Rehabilitation is the phase of treatment during which clients learn how to change their behavior to sustain sobriety. Individual and group counseling, family counseling, education, anti-craving medications, tutoring and vocational training, values clarification, social skills education and training, and other relevant services are all part of the process of preparing clients for life without alcohol and other drugs. Rehabilitation is provided in a variety of forms and settings: hospital inpatient, long-term residential, short-term residential, halfway houses, therapeutic communities, intensive day treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, and traditional outpatient. For the client, being matched to the right treatment level and staying in the program for the prescribed length of time is critical to successful recovery. To provide guidelines that help the field of addictions treatment place individuals in the most efficient and effective level of service, the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) in April 1996, published the Patient Placement Criteria for the Treatment of Substance-Related Disorders. For people who are otherwise healthy, who are employed, and who have stable families, rehabilitation may consist of a relatively short, intense burst of combined detoxification and intensive treatment, followed by a longer period of less intensive outpatient counseling, psychotherapy, and family counseling. People with fewer resources, whose addiction has stripped them of their families, jobs, and inner resolve, generally require more intense and extended treatment. Lacking strong supports in the community, they often achieve best results in residential treatment that continues for several months or even years. Long-term intensive 10

11 outpatient programs provide an additional approach. These must not only erase old and enduring habits, but also instill new habits and values, and provide skills that make productive life possible. Continuing care, usually provided in the traditional outpatient setting, is the ongoing phase of the treatment process. Many people with addictions stay involved in continuing care throughout their lives. Community based support group programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, are among the best-known support systems to maintain treatment benefits. They offer encouragement and moral support among people who are true peers. Also called maintenance or aftercare, these support systems have proven very effective in preventing relapse. Relapse prevention strategies can be applied after, or in conjunction with, the primary treatment. In general, these strategies focus on training clients to anticipate and cope with the possibility of relapse and helping clients modify their lives to reduce their exposure to high-risk situations and strengthen their overall coping abilities. Help for families of substance abusers can be found in Al-Anon, Alateen, and other community based support group programs. Substance abuse is a family illness. It is estimated that one person s substance abuse negatively affects the lives of at least four other people. These special support groups for the spouses, family members, and children of substance abusers address their problems and provide information and support as they cope with the process of their own recovery from the ill effects of their loved one s addiction. 11
