Find Drug and Alcohol Treatment in Georgia That Works

From the hustle and bustle of Downtown Atlanta to the riverside scenery of Savannah, Georgia is a shining example of Southern hospitality and culture. Lightning bugs illuminate summer nights while stadium lights brighten the field at SunTrust Park. Whether you’re catching a concert at Philips Arena, reliving the spirit of ‘96 at Centennial Olympic park, or exploring the North Georgia mountains, the Peach State has something for everyone.

But between its bucolic landscapes and sprawling skylines, Georgia is embroiled in an addiction crisis along with the rest of the country. Although prescription and illicit drug use and alcohol abuse are prominent, many resources are available. There are several drug treatment facilities in Georgia and beyond, all well equipped to help manage and heal the effects of drugs and alcohol.

Georgia’s Opioid Crisis

Like most of the United States, Georgia has been significantly impacted by the opioid crisis of the past few decades. Starting in the early 1990s, doctors in the state and across the country began to prescribe more opioid medications than ever before. While these were originally thought to be beneficial for helping manage pain, the devastating rates of addiction that came from opioid use quickly became apparent.

In the past few years, states across the country have restricted the availability of opioid prescriptions. In Georgia, the opioid prescription rate dropped from 88.6 per 100 residents in 2011 to 77.8 in 2016. Despite this, opioid overdoses have continued to rise in the state, as more and more addicted individuals who are unable to get prescription opioids turn to illicit opioids like fentanyl and heroin. In 2016 alone, 1,370 people died from lethal opioid overdoses.

Georgia Drug Abuse

Addiction and substance use are issues that every social, economic, racial and age group faces across the United States. Unfortunately, Georgia is no exception. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) consolidates a variety of drug abuse statistics and reports to give an accurate depiction of substance use and addiction throughout these different regions, including the state of Georgia:

Alcohol Abuse and Dependence
in Georgia Population

Between 2013 and 2014, roughly 506,000 people aged 12 or older either abused or were dependent upon alcohol in the Peach State.

Illicit Drug Dependence
in Georgians Aged 12+

Based on a SAMHSA report, there were about 238,000 Georgians aged 12 and older who abused or were dependent on illicit drugs from 2013–2014.

From 2007–2014
Received Drug Treatment

Of the Georgians who struggled with illicit drug use and dependence, only 26,000 individuals (13.3 percent) received treatment in the year prior to being surveyed, leaving 86.7 percent without therapy.

Nonmedical Pain Reliever Use
Among Georgia Adolescents

From 2013 to 2014, there were about 44,000 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who misused pain relievers for nonmedical purposes.

While these drug and alcohol statistics demonstrate the extent of Georgia’s substance use problem, there’s still hope for the Empire State of the South.

Choosing a Georgia Rehab Facility

With such a broad range of drug and alcohol rehab centers in Georgia and surrounding states, it can be difficult to decide which facility will best meet your unique needs. Because no two Georgia drug treatment centers are exactly alike, it’s important that you carefully weigh the pros and cons of each option to ensure the best care possible. Some of the most important factors to consider when selecting alcohol and drug rehab centers in Georgia and beyond include:

  • Levels of care offered
  • Average length of each treatment program
  • Extent that each patient’s care plan is tailored to their unique needs
  • Feedback from past and present patients
  • Which therapeutic methods are implemented
  • Whether or not tapering drugs are utilized, if necessary
