How addiction affects society

The Impact of Substance Abuse in Beaufort County, South Carolina

South Carolina’s Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services monitors the impact of substance problems on the state’s communities. One important measure of this impact is the extent of community factors for substance use disorder (SUD). The definition for this disorder combines the once-separate diagnoses for:

  • Clinical drug addiction
  • Dysfunctional substance abuse in the absence of clinical addiction

Figures show that Beaufort and Beaufort County rank low on the state’s list of common factors for SUD. The one exception to this general finding is the county’s exposure to alcohol-related problems, which is fairly high. 

Substance problems are a major concern in any community because of their common personal and social effects. On a personal level, all SUDs cause substantial emotional distress. They also change your thoughts and behaviors, making it harder to function in everyday life. In addition, chronic substance problems increase your exposure to a host of serious physical and mental health issues.

The social impact of SUDs often begins with significant damage to your most important relationships. You may also find it harder to meet your obligations or responsibilities at school or in the workplace. Other negative impacts of SUDs on society include:

  • Increased involvement in risky behavior
  • Higher rates of car crashes and other kinds of accidents
  • Greater odds of committing and being victimized by violence or other forms of criminal behavior

For all of these reasons, effective SUD resources are invaluable to any community. With help from these resources, you can decrease or eliminate your own substance-related risks. You can also help decrease or eliminate the potential social costs of untreated substance problems.

Getting Help for Addiction

Do you need a Beaufort Drug Rehab Center or Alcohol Rehab Center?

The presence of an SUD is a sure indicator that you likely need formal drug or alcohol treatment. There are many subtypes of this disorder. However, doctors and addiction specialists use the same methods to look for and identify all SUDs. Specifically, they check for 11 signs and symptoms that addiction or substance abuse are present. Separately or in combination, these symptoms can do such things as:

  • Make it impossible for you to set and keep limits on your substance use
  • Interfere with your ability to understand how your substance use affects you physically or mentally
  • Similarly, interfere with your ability to recognize substance-related harm to your relationships
  • Change the way you respond to the chemical effects of using drugs or alcohol
  • Negatively alter your typical behavior, life priorities, and interactions with other people

You only need to have a couple of signs or symptoms to qualify for an SUD diagnosis. Based on the overall number of issues affecting you, the disorder may be classified as:

  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Moderate-to-severe
  • Severe

Who do you need to see for an SUD diagnosis? Today, most people start by asking their primary care doctor for a drug and alcohol assessment. You can also talk to a provider who specializes in addiction treatment. Consult the staff at Southern Sky Recovery to learn more about determining your SUD treatment needs.
