Drug Rehab Alpharetta Georgia

Find Drug Treatment and Alcohol Rehab Programs in Alpharetta

There are several drug rehab options available to individuals living in the Alpharetta area. It is important to understand each treatment option that is available in Alpharetta, Georgia, in order to choose the appropriate treatment approach for yourself or a loved one. Choosing the proper drug or alcohol rehab program in Alpharetta, GA. is the most important factor in the treatment of drug abuse, drug addiction and alcoholism. The following information will help you to understand your various treatment options so that you have the greatest chance of a successful outcome.

Let's take a look at the various treatment options that coincide with the condition of the individual seeking treatment.

Outpatient drug or alcohol rehab programs do not require patients to reside in a treatment facility during the treatment process; therefore, employment and home activities can continue during the treatment process. Typically, outpatient treatment is a method employed only in the case of moderate drug and/or alcohol use, that has not advanced to the stages of dependence or addiction.

An inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program is the correct treatment method for severe cases of drug addiction and alcoholism. Unlike out-patient rehab programs which can leave an individual susceptible to continually relapsing, inpatient drug and alcohol rehabs offer a controlled, safe environment where a person can get maximum benefit in the recovery process.

Short term drug and alcohol rehabs are inpatient treatment programs which are best suited for people that have reached the stage of addiction but the addiction stage is a year or less. The typical length of stay is 30 days or less in an inpatient treatment facility. Because of the brief duration of a short-term rehab program, people that have struggled with a severe addiction for years do not usually benefit from this method of treatment.

Long term drug and alcohol rehab provides treatment for people that have developed advanced stages of drug addiction and alcoholism. This is the only method of treatment that has shown to be effective for long term advanced cases of addiction. Long term drug and alcohol rehab programs are 60 to 90 days and longer.

Research studies show conclusively that the longer a severe drug or alcohol addicted person stays in treatment, the better the outcome. As such, the benefits of a long term drug or alcohol rehab should be taken into serious consideration when deciding upon treatment for a long term severe addiction problem.

A dual diagnosis drug or alcohol rehab may be the correct choice if one suspects that the person that is addicted to a drugs and/or alcohol due to an underlying mental health issue. Co-existing conditions are very common and both can be treated through a regime of detoxification, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, and therapy.

According to the National Association of Diaconate Directors, dual-diagnosis rehab centers should use a variety of therapy when treating those with this condition. Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches the drug or alcohol abuser how to better deal with their thoughts and behaviors regarding their condition. Behavior management is an additional form of therapy which centers on their behaviors and actions concerning their substance abuse.

Drug or alcohol detoxification is a process that deals with the mental and physical withdrawal symptoms that are brought on when a drug or alcohol addicted person stops using the substance they are dependent on abruptly. The severity of these withdrawal symptoms is dependent upon the type of substance or substances the person is addicted to and how long they have been using. Most often, detox has a duration of 3 days to a week but in some cases such as methadone and suboxone it can be much longer.

It is important to realize that for addiction, detox is only the first step of addressing the problem. Drug and alcohol addiction is a complex problem, psychological symptoms may persist long after physical addiction symptoms have passed. Individuals not only develop a physical dependence to drugs and alcohol but in most cases, emotional and psychological dependence as well. Detox should be followed with an extensive treatment program so that the individual is emotionally and psychologically prepared for the future.

As you can imagine, one doesn't want too many failures piling up due to choosing incorrect treatment options, as the person will become hopeless and give up altogether. So it is vital to understand your options and seek the proper level of care for the severity of the substance abuse problem.

DEA Info For Georgia

There are 9.3 million legal residents in the state of Georgia, and Hispanics comprise over 5 percent of the population. Growth of the Hispanic population in Georgia has been aided by an influx of undocumented immigrants, mostly from Mexico. Intelligence currently shows that as the Mexican immigrant community has grown, so too has the presence of Mexican traffickers. Mexican poly-drug organizations have been identified as the largest foreign threat in the State of Georgia, predominantly trafficking in cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and heroin. Moreover, Mexican traffickers now supply kilogram quantities of cocaine HCl directly to local crack cocaine dealers.

Also, Interstate Highway 20 runs directly into Georgia from drug entry points along the southwest border and Gulf Coast.

Drug Facts

Studies have shown that substance abuse can lead to child abuse. Whether it does depends on family factors such as education, income, and the parents' own histories of substance abuse, neglect, and physical abuse. Moreover, physical abuse is not the only kind of abuse. Parents who use drugs or alcohol are typically unable to fulfill some aspects of their children's emotional or physical needs. One common factor in the family lives of substance abusers is the absent father. When the father leaves, his role in family life must be filled by someone else. Often a child must assume responsibilities inappropriate to his or her age, such as caring for younger children in the family. As a result, that child's own needs may never be met. Domestic violence can occur when a drug abuser in the family is desperate to obtain more drugs. For example, if the drug abuser needs money to buy drugs, and a family member tries to prevent him from taking money, the drug abuser may become violent. A drug abuser might also become suspicious that a partner is informing on him or her to the police and respond violently. Some women are involved in prostitution to obtain drugs for themselves or their partners, so their risk of exposure to violent behavior is increased substantially. Studies of couples have shown that when both partners have substance abuse problems, they are more likely to become violent against each other. Alcohol problems most strongly increase the likelihood of violence. Studies have also shown that the combined use of alcohol and drugs, particularly cocaine, is extremely dangerous in terms of violent behavior.
Most pregnant teens leave school permanently, especially in low-income communities. Nearly one million teenagers become pregnant each year and 40 percent of these pregnancies end in abortion. A national study found that almost half of the young women had been drinking and/or using drugs at the time of the unplanned pregnancy, and 17 percent of those who carried their babies to term continued to drink and/or use drugs while they were pregnant. This leads to a high incidence of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, a pattern of physical, mental, and behavioral defects which appears in children of mothers who drink during pregnancy. Hospitals report delivering nearly four hundred thousand drug-dependent babies each year. Drug-exposed babies, if they live, often have serious disabilities, both physical and emotional. When the mother uses crack, for instance, the supply of oxygen to the fetus's brain is cut off, causing varying degrees of brain damage. The resulting children are often fearful and suspicious of people and have trouble learning even simple tasks.
Powdered cocaine is also sometimes smoked, though heat destroys much of the chemical; smokers often sprinkle it on marijuana.
Some courts have required a convicted drunk driver to pay punitive damages to victims in an accident. In this case, a jury determines an amount of money the convicted drunk driver must pay the accident victim to make up for his or her loss. Some states permit the drunk driver's automobile insurance to cover the costs of punitive damages. In this case the punishment has no deterrent effect, as the money does not come out of the driver's own pocket.
