But, the state is following the lead of the rest of the nation in battling the opioid epidemic by taking some precautions, like warning communities about the risk of fentanyl-laced heroin and encouraging people early on to seek treatment for opioid dependence and abuse.

There are also inpatient rehabs, where clients are residents for anywhere from 30 days to several months, as well as hospital inpatient settings for cases that need serious medical treatment.
For patients with underlying conditions or mental illness along with substance abuse issues, there are several dual diagnosis facilities in South Carolina. You can also find rehabs with programs specifically geared towards women, men, seniors, and adolescents, as well as survivors of trauma, domestic violence, and sexual abuse.
