According to the North Carolina Division Heath and Human Services (NCDHHS), from 1999 to 2016 more than 12,000 North Carolinians died from opioid-related overdoses. This epidemic is devastating families and communities. It is overwhelming medical providers and is straining prevention and treatment efforts. To tackle this health crisis, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is working to connect people with preventative healthcare, substance use disorder treatment and community supports. This is a complex issue requiring partnership from many sectors and is an effort that needs to be supported through funding and resources to be successful.
These clinics educate people about their rights and empower them to handle certain basic legal issues without the help of a lawyer. Participants receive all the guidance and paperwork necessary to walk out of the clinic and into the courthouse. Clinics are hosted monthly or quarterly at Legal Aid offices, churches, community centers and other locations throughout North Carolina. All clinics are completely free, but advance registration is required due to space limitations at most locations. Participants receive general legal information only. No specific advice is given on individual cases.
