Georgia Drug Addiction Recovery and Treatment Programs and Centers

mgeorgiastate

Georgia, just like every other state in America, is dealing with a serious drug and alcohol abuse problem. Although the state of Georgia has below-the-national-average rates of drug and alcohol dependency, there are still things for everyone to be concerned about. For the last few years, admissions to Georgia’s treatment centers for alcoholism have fallen, but drug admissions continue to rise.

In Georgia, the use of and addiction to methamphetamine is climbing steeply, with meth labs springing up on a daily basis around the state. Meth is a deadly, destructive, and extremely addictive drug- many people are hooked after using it just one time. Of all admissions to Georgia’s drug and alcohol treatment centers in 2005, about thirteen percent were for addiction to meth.

Below, you’ll find a chart that shows a breakdown of admissions to Georgia’s drug and alcohol rehab centers. Drug admissions make up almost fifty percent of the total, with a good deal of those coming from addictions to prescription medications. These drugs, like Percocet and Valium, are easily obtainable. Those who are over 60 years old are especially susceptible to prescription drug addiction. So-called “club drugs” like PCP and ketamine, found wherever young people hang out, are a growing concern as well.

State of Georgia Profile of Drug Indicators

November 2007

For 2006, the last year for which we have data, there were 277 drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in Georgia. As half of Georgia’s people live near the Atlanta metropolis, most of the state’s treatment centers are located there- but many bigger communities in Georgia are home to at least one drug treatment center. Those that need help for addiction shouldn’t be afraid to drive a little further to get treatment, and they should carefully examine their options. Not all drug and alcohol treatment centers in Georgia offer the same programs or the same level of treatment. For example, only thirty two facilities offer treatment for opiate addictions, and very few are certified to provide buprenorphine. Of all of Georgia’s drug and alcohol treatment facilities, 78 are publicly owned, 76 are private and profit-based, and 84 are private not-for profit. This variety of centers gives the addict a lot of choice when they finally decide to get help, and the amount of publicly-funded facilities means that treatment is accessible to everyone.

If you are looking for drug treatment in Georgia, you should choose a program that covers all the bases- detoxification, counseling, behavior modification, and continuing care. No program can be successful unless it attacks the addiction from all possible angles.

Shame and fear shouldn’t keep you from looking for help for a drug addiction in Georgia. You are not alone-many people are going through the same thing. With help, medication, and counseling, it is possible to put a stop to a dangerous and deadly drug or alcohol addiction.
