Why Choose Georgia Detox Centers?

Many people think they would rather go through detox at home, but this choice is completely unsafe. Going through a professional detox program will allow you to receive access not only to the supervision of medical personnel but to medications, behavioral therapies, holistic treatments, and many other options. It is also a much safer situation to be in if something with your withdrawal goes wrong.

  • Even withdrawal syndromes that seem uncomplicated can become severely dangerous.
  • People who go through withdrawal at home have a much higher chance of relapsing than those who at least attend an outpatient detox program.
  • Recovery is easier with the help of medical treatment.

Don’t go through withdrawal at home when it will be safer and easier for you to attend a Georgia detox program.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration states, between 2012 and 2013, Georgia’s binge alcohol use among individuals aged 12 to 20 was 13 percent. This was similar to the national average at 14.7.
  • 56.5 percent of Georgia teens in the same time frame perceived no risk from drinking 5 or more drinks once or twice a week. 35.6 percent perceived no great risk from smoking one or more packs of cigarettes a day.
  • Of the 1,307 drug overdose deaths that occurred in Georgia in 2015, 900 of them were due to opioid abuse. This is over 68 percent, according to the Substance Abuse Research Alliance.
  • Between 2010 and 2014, only 7.8 percent of Georgians aged 12 or older who were dependent on alcohol received the treatment they needed (SAMHSA).
  • Only 13.3 percent of the Georgians addicted to drugs between 2007 and 2014 received treatment.

How Long is Georgia Alcohol Detox?

Georgia alcohol detox can sometimes be unpredictable when it comes to the length of treatment, especially when an individual experiences severe symptoms. Though the National Library of Medicine states alcohol withdrawal usually starts 8 hours or so after the last drink and peaks 72 hours later, symptoms can drag on for several weeks. It can be difficult to determine if a person is through the worst of their symptoms as well since delirium tremens can occur suddenly several days after withdrawal has begun.

You should expect to be in alcohol detox for a few weeks or longer in most cases. Find out which program will best suit your needs when you call 678-679-9298(Who Answers?) today.

How Long is Georgia Drug Detox?

Drug detox can take a few days or as long as several months, depending on the drug of abuse. Many times, patients who leave treatment early experience difficulty with their symptoms, so make sure you stay in your treatment program as long as necessary.

  • Stimulant withdrawal can often take months. The symptoms can linger on and resurface with little to no warning.
  • Heroin and opioid withdrawal usually takes no longer than a week or two, although you will need to stay longer if your doctor deems it necessary.
  • Benzodiazepine detox can be unpredictable and may take several days or a few weeks for a safe recovery.
  • Some drugs, like club drugs, can be completely unpredictable when it comes to their detox lengths. This is often because drugs like ketamine and GHB cause both psychological and physical symptoms.

Be prepared to be in detox for about 30 days, even if you believe your withdrawal will take less time. After all, you will need to attend addiction treatment afterward, no matter what your situation.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in GA

Not everyone needs inpatient detox, but it can be a beneficial choice for many, especially those with severe withdrawal symptoms (or the potential to experience dangerous symptoms). In addition, if you have

  • A lack of support at home
  • An unsafe home environment
  • A history of relapse
  • A co-occurring mental disorder

inpatient care is likely the best choice for your needs. However, this does not rule out outpatient detox as an option, so think carefully about which will be likely to suit you better.
