Drug Addiction in Georgia

Though some surveys point to substance use rates below or equal to national averages, Georgia has begun to be affected by the opioid crisis gripping the rest of the country. It has taken some steps to address the crisis, but it has yet to see significant declines in overdose rates.

Opioids, primarily prescription pain relievers and heroin, are the main cause of drug overdose deaths in Georgia. Overdose deaths tripled between 1999 and 2013.1 Georgia has a prescription drug monitoring program that tracks the writing and filing of controlled substance prescriptions. However, doctors are not required by law to check if a patient has already been prescribed painkillers before writing a prescription.2

A law passed in 2013 provided greater oversight and stricter regulation of pain clinics. However, this law appears to have had little effect on overdoses in the state so far.2

Georgia has 270 outpatient, 76 residential, and 22 hospital inpatient substance abuse treatment facilities. 55 facilities have opioid treatment programs. About 87% of facilities accept cash, about half accept private health insurance, 31% accept Medicare, 54% accept Medicaid, and 51% offer a sliding scale fee.4

Addiction by the Numbers

  • In 2013-2014, Georgia adolescents aged 12-17 were below the national average for past-month illicit drug use, past-month cigarette use, and binge alcohol use. Overall, these rates appear to have gone down since 2010-2011, though binge alcohol use has been relatively stable. Nonmedical use of pain relievers has been above the national average since 2010-2011.3
  • In 2013-2014, Georgians aged 12 or older were below the national average for past-year alcohol dependence or abuse, though this rate has gone up since 2010-2011. They were above the national average for past-year illicit drug dependence or abuse, but below the average for past-month heavy alcohol use.3
  • Of the 1,307 drug overdose deaths in 2015 in Georgia, 900 or 68% were due to opioid overdoses.1
  • Hospitalizations related to opioid use and misuse in Georgia have risen from around 302,000 in 2002 to about 520,000 in 2012.1

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

Every treatment program in Georgia will vary in price. The cost will be influenced by a number of factors such as location, whether it is a luxury or standard rehab facility, the length of your program, and the types of wellness services it offers such as massage, acupuncture, and yoga. If you know that you will be better able to concentrate on your treatment if you are in a private room or at a facility that offers access to a gym, it’s important that you find a center with these services.

Most programs in Georgia allow you to negotiate on price and offer sliding scale fees. In addition, there are programs across the state that accept Medicaid, Medicare, private health insurance, and out of pocket payments.

Treatment Options

Once you find a program, you can expect to start with a period of detoxification (depending on your drug of choice and severity of your addiction) followed by inpatient or outpatient treatment. Since there are many components to addiction, it is not enough to treat addiction by simply stopping the drug.

Whether you are in intensive outpatient, short or long-term residential inpatient, or hospital inpatient program, you will work with therapists and counselors to address the psychological aspects of your drug use. During your treatment, you may have the option to attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings or other 12-step group meetings where you will meet other people in recovery to share stories and offer one another feedback and support.
