SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Recover releases an all inclusive informational for those looking for drug treatment in Atlanta GA. The addiction and recovery media site dedicated to helping those fighting against substance abuse disorder has created a source for those looking for instructions on how to seek help against the types of drugs abused in their hometown. According to the site, Cocaine is the highest abused drug in the city, with marijuana being the next most abused substance.
In a city with over 5 and a half million residents, the need for substance abuse treatments is necessary in curbing the epidemic of high school drop outs at 33% and 1,394 drug overdose deaths in Georgia in 2016, an alarming rate of 13.3 deaths per 100,000 residents. In recent years, the city has been hit with an influx of drug trafficking, due to their location and resources stemming from Mexico, and methamphetamine makers in surrounding states like Tennessee and Missouri.
The site breaks down the processes involved in beginning treatment, from the pre-intake stage until a patient’s aftercare program. Detoxification from harmful substances is one of the most important processes, as it can potentially save a life from the painful withdrawal symptoms and help those walk into treatment with a clear body and mind. The site urges those interested in detox to find a medical detox center, as non-medical detox centers can be devoid of important components that will keep you safe during the strenuous withdrawal process.
Those looking for treatment can see what type of drug and alcohol treatment options are out there, from Inpatient to outpatient, residential to hospitalized and the sober living options available to a person in recovery once treatment has ended. After treatment has finished, it can be a very intimidating time for those who are still figuring out how to go back out into the world they once knew. The Recover is here to help in that process.
