Drug Abuse in Georgia
At The Treatment Center, we want to help residents who feel trapped in the recurring cycle of addiction. We can help Georgians heal from a number of harmful substances, including the following commonly abused drugs in Georgia:
Oxycodone (OxyContin) was the most reported prescription opiate in the Atlanta area at the beginning of 2013, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). However, Georgia residents hope to see a decrease in the rates of prescription drug abuse now that the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is available to physicians and pharmacies.
The Georgia PDMP allows authorities to keep track of how patients are filling their prescriptions. This has helped many states deter addicts or illegal drug distributors from “doctor shopping” or filling multiple prescriptions from different doctors.
Due to its low price and high potency, many addicts are switching from prescription opiates to heroin. For this reason, Georgia metro areas have seen a drastic rise in both heroin abuse and heroin overdose deaths.
According to NIDA, Georgians who sought treatment for heroin addiction in 2013 were younger than in the past.
NIDA reported that community-based Georgia drug and alcohol rehabs have witnessed a steady increase in methamphetamine admissions since 2010. The rate of meth abuse was at its highest level in 2013 since a peak in 2006.
In early July of 2014, Harris County police officers seized the largest amount of ice their county has ever seen. The police officers trailed the traffickers from Georgia to Panama City Beach, FL, where they seized eighteen pounds of Mexican-made meth.
Cocaine has been an issue in the past for Georgia, but luckily the rates of abuse for this drug have been on the decline since 2010. Still, coke is available to many and is often abused among young adults.
Like many other states in the U.S., Georgia’s number one abused substance is alcohol. According to NIDA, alcohol abused either alone or with other drugs was the primary cause for over half of Georgia’s treatment admissions in 2013.
Marijuana is the most frequently abused illicit drug among Georgia residents. In Atlanta, marijuana abuse made up about 20 percent of the drug admissions in 2011.
In addition to the substances listed above, The Treatment Center can help Georgians detox and recover from club drugs, synthetic drugs and inhalants.
