Drug addiction and alcoholism destroy lives, drug rehab and drug treatment rebuild lives. You can get better, and you can move beyond the pains of drug or alcohol abuse. Addiction treatment works, it teaches you how to get clean and sober, and more importantly, it teaches you how to stay that way. Find a drug rehab that matches your beliefs and meets your needs (holistic drug rehab, teen drug rehab, Christian drug rehab, executive drug rehab) and start your journey of recovery soon. You can beat addiction-it won’t be easy-but you can do it!
Georgia unfortunately does not yet mandate insurance parity. This means that Georgia health insurance providers are not yet required to fund mental health and substance abuse treatment equally to physical health treatment.
However, whatever your insurance coverage situation, and however little money you may have to self-finance a stay at a private rehab, everyone in Georgia can find affordable care. Please see the information below on how to access state funded drug and alcohol treatment and please also review our list of free or almost free rehabs within the State of Georgia.
Alcoholism and drug addiction create incredible personal and familial pain, and there are two myths that unfortunately keep too many Georgians out of the treatment that could save their heath, their dignity and ultimately their lives.
Addicts never need to hit rock bottom before getting treatment. Treatment is always better entered sooner rather than later. Don’t wait for the worst to come; if you do nothing it probably will, but that pain can be avoided. Get help now.
The second very harmful myth is that only the addict can decide on her own to get better. In fact, recovery statistics indicate that regardless of the initial motivation to enter into treatment, addicts and alcoholics recover about equally well. Whether they walk in that door, or whether they're pushed, they have an equal chance to leave the pains of addiction behind.
