Georgia Drug Rehab

There are several drug problems in Georgia, the consequences of which can be seen on a daily basis in the state. Abuse of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and diverted pharmaceuticals are among the worst drug problems in the state of Georgia. This problem permeates throughout every age group, race and gender in the state, and no one in Georgia is immune to addiction or the resulting consequences. Many drug addicted individuals lose their lives each year to addiction or wind up in one of the many packed jails or prisons in the state, a consequence of addiction which not only affects the addicts themselves but every citizen in Georgia. Because of the consequences of addiction, every effort must be made to provide Georgia residents with effective drug rehab before it is too late.

For many individuals who are addicted to drugs, trying to kick addiction can seem like a losing battle. For the most part, individuals who are addicted to drugs often want to quit. Even with the best of intentions however they can find it almost impossible to do so because of a mixture of circumstances, including the physical and mental challenges they face during drug withdrawal and the general dependence individuals develop to drugs over time. This dependence is often not only physical but also psychological in nature, and long term addicts can find it very difficult to function in life without their drug or drugs of choice.

Family members, loved ones and friends can find it very difficult to understand why someone would choose a life of addiction over other important and sacred things in life such as one's health, career, possessions, and even one's family. The dependence to drugs however soon trumps any of these things which are seemingly important to anyone else, and become the number one driving force which obviously isn't a healthy choice at all. It can take quite an event to put an addict in the frame of mind to make the right choice and seek help, but it can happen with the help of family members and loved ones who care. One of the ways to get someone to see that there is a way to resolve addiction and that they can have a normal life again is to hold a drug intervention. Family members and friends can find an acceptable treatment option and work with a professional treatment counselor who can help those involved liaise with a professional drug interventionist. A professional drug interventionist can help intervention participants become educated in the process and help orchestrate the intervention and get the person sent off to treatment.

Once the individual accepts help and arrives in treatment at a drug rehab, they will first undergo a complete and safe drug detox. A drug detox is the process during which drugs are leaving the addict's system to the point where they are no longer high or experiencing any ill effects such as withdrawal symptoms. Some symptoms of withdrawal can be extremely painful and uncomfortable, and some can even be life threatening such as seizures. This is all dependent on which drug the individual is withdrawing from, dosage, etc., and treatment professionals are always diligent in knowing the individual's drug history and what to look out for while they are in detox. It is sometimes necessary to be slowly weaned off of a substance for example, and medical professionals are always on hand to intervene as necessary in the case any complications do arise. Most detox and withdrawal can be overcome easily within a matter of days however, and the individual can then begin the actual rehabilitation process.

Once the physical aspects of detox and withdrawal have been addressed, treatment professionals can then address underlying addiction issues with group and individual counseling, behavioral therapy and other useful treatment tools. The issues which arise during the course of treatment in drug rehab can be different from person to person, and the best approach to treatment is using these tools on an individual basis for as long as needed to resolve them. The time needed to do so can also vary from person to person, and drug rehab programs which cater to the particular needs and circumstances of each client in treatment are programs which typically have the highest success rates. Residential and inpatient drug rehab programs in Georgia which offer an extended length of stay, typically 90 days or longer, are programs which provide high success rates and give the individual the best shot at becoming completely rehabilitated.

The residential and inpatient drug rehab programs in Georgia have the highest success rates because clients are able to partake in treatment services without distraction, and are able to completely focus on treatment instead of things which may trigger their drug use. Outpatient drug rehab programs for example send treatment clients right back into the dragons lair each time they leave the facility, and susceptible to drug triggers and influences which may cause relapse. In a residential or inpatient facility, treatment clients not only have no access to drugs, but they are also surrounded by positive influences and around the clock support consistently and on a daily basis until treatment is complete. This ensures that all gains they make in treatment are sustainable, which gives them the best chance to actually be able to remain abstinent once treatment is complete and make a fresh start.

If you or someone you know is considering drug rehab to resolve addiction issues, the sooner one makes the step to do so the sooner they can live life in a healthy and productive manner. It is worth the effort on behalf of family members, loved ones and friends to hold an intervention as needed to get individuals into treatment before it is too late, and to do everything possible to ensure that they remain in treatment until they are able to confidently remain abstinent and be able to get through life without drugs as a crutch.
