North Carolina loses over 2,000 people a year to drug overdose, and the tragic loss doesn’t appear to be improving. As grim as this situation is, there is a simple solution; we can help North Carolinians battling behavioral health disorders — and cut our uninsured rate in half — by expanding Medicaid. States have seen a 6% decrease in opioid deaths after expanding Medicaid. Recovery is possible if we give folks a fighting chance.

Join Us via Zoom every Thursday at 11 AM for Speakers, Support and Solutions at RCNC's Recovery Corner!

Loneliness is one major challenge people often face early in recovery. It’s usually a good idea to distance yourself from old friends who drink or use drugs since they can be a major trigger of cravings. However, you may not yet have any friends to replace them. People typically find loneliness stressful and depressing. Chronic loneliness has even been linked to early death. Having a pet is a hedge against loneliness. There’s always another sentient being around to keep you company. A dog is always happy to see you and a cat will at least put up with you. It’s not the same as having friends to talk to, but it helps.
