Understanding the disease

What is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse is a disease of both the body and the brain that manifests through the repeated use of toxic substances despite their negative consequences. People can develop addiction to:

These substances have a mind altering effect that changes the individual’s natural brain chemistry. The pain signaling chemicals in the body are blocked, and feel good hormones are released at extremely high and unnatural levels. This results in a “euphoric” like sensation, commonly referred to as the substance’s “high”. While the body naturally produces feel good hormones, when exposed to addictive substances it begins to rely on them for the production of these hormones. This leaves the individual feeling both metnally and physically ill when they are without the substance. The more a substance is used, the deeper the addiction and dependence becomes, and here the cycle of addiction is created.

Overtime, the amount of the substance needed to feel high gets higher and higher. This means that what started as one drink or one pill now takes twice or three times as much to get the same effect. Of course, in higher doses these substances become extremely dangerous. Oftentimes chasing the high leads to overdose which can be fatal. In order to prevent overdose or a deeper addiction, professional treatment that includes a detox period is necessary. Until the body is completely flushed of any addictive substances- it will continue to crave and seek a deadly high.

The Benefits of Addiction Treatment

Why is Treatment Needed?

Professional treatment is the best way to ensure a full recovery from substance abuse. Addiction isn’t just a bad habit, it is a disease that affects the body and mind.

Oftentimes, those suffering from substance abuse are not in the right state of mind to care for themselves. While the drug itself is the addictive portion of the disease, mental health, family and personal health history, as well as life experience all play a role into the formation of addiction. You can stop using, but without addressing all of these aspects, relapse is very likely. Professional drug addiction treatment in Atlanta ensures you have access to experienced doctors, healthcare workers, and licensed psychologists that can tailor a program suited to your needs.

Professional treatment goes beyond getting the drug out of your system. Intensive programs give you the tools to be able to handle any emotional or physical triggers so you can stay sober long term. Treatment connects you with professionals who have extensive experience in treating drug addiction. You’ll also be connected with other addicts going through similar trials through group therapy and workshops.

Understanding Your Treatment Options

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Atlanta, Georgia

Whether you’re addicted to drugs or alcohol, our addiction treatment centers can help you through the process of detox and intensive outpatient programs in Atlanta, Georgia. While addictions can be very different and require different treatment approaches and  medical care, any of the necessary services needed can be found at Atlanta Recovery Place. Oftentimes, those suffering from substance abuse are addicted to multiple substances and alcohol at the same time. There is no limit to what we can treat. 

The first step in most addiction treatment centers is a full substance detox, although not every substance requires this. For the drugs that do require it however, this is the initial period of time, typically lasting 5-7 days, where the toxic substances are flushed from the body. This is the most difficult and most important step in recovery. A successful detox is the foundation of sobriety, and if any drugs are left in the body, cravings will likely continue. With alcohol, withdrawal symptoms during detox can be fatal, so it’s crucial to be under the supervision of a medical professional. 

Once the initial detox is complete, clients will continue with either an inpatient residential or outpatient program. This part of recovery ranges from 30-90 days and gives you the tools to stay sober long term. Treatment will range depending on the individual but will often include one on one therapy, medicated assistance if needed, relaxation techniques, alternative therapies, group therapies, and more. Once the program is complete there is usually a post recovery program with weekly meetings and other resources to keep you on track. The important thing to look for in your recovery treatment program in Atlanta is a facility that offers treatment for all types of substance abuse and offers a range of services so your unique needs can be met.
