Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Cumming, GA

Opioid addiction has become a significant health problem in the United States. In 2015, there were 91 opioid overdose-related deaths per day, with a substantial increase in mortality rate in 2014.

When opioid addiction has reached a point where a person’s life becomes unmanageable, treatment options are available to help them get sober. Treatment that includes medical care with medications and counseling can help a user transition into sobriety.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Drug Rehab, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

Sober living homes, also known as halfway houses, provide recovering people with a structured drug-free environment to live in that bridges inpatient rehab and the much less structured world of outpatient rehab. Sober living homes offer a person early in recovery the opportunity to practice recovery skills in a safe environment.

The atmosphere in sober living homes is less restrictive than in an inpatient facility. Members have to follow many rules, including not drinking and using drugs and paying rent and bills. There is no limit to the period of stay. As long as you stay, you should follow the rules because it’s the opportunity for individual and group sobriety.

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

Therapies & Programs

Because no single treatment is effective for all addicts, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to figure out what works best for each individual. Tolerance and withdrawal levels differ from person to person, affecting the treatment intensity required. Addiction treatment should aim to help addicts develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with their addiction and its underlying causes.

Group therapy can help build a stronger support system and give addicts in Cumming, GA insight into their addiction that they gain through shared conversations. Group therapy occurs in a controlled group environment, exclusive of one on one meetings. This makes it safer for patients to feel comfortable sharing the struggles they’re going through and gaining perspective.

Life Skills Services assist addicts in their recovery by teaching them healthy coping mechanisms that will aid them in becoming sober, focussing on helping people enter into, and maintaining long-term sobriety. Drug Treatment Centers provide Life Skills Services at varying levels of intensity, specific to the needs and requirements of each patient.

The benefits of Life Skills Services offered at Abba House:

  • Restores hope and empowerment — Helps addicts believe that recovery is possible and instills a new confidence in their ability to achieve a positive, drug-free future
  • Enhances family involvement — Encourages families to get involved in the recovery process and supports their understanding and encouragement of healthy behavior.
  • Increases patient’s compliance — Helps patients take responsibility for and ownership of their recovery and encourages continued progress
  • Reduces relapse rates — Encourages long-term abstinence and emphasizes the importance of establishing sober support systems.

It’s important to remember that malnutrition can affect your mood and energy level, which affects your desire to get sober. Good nutrition helps keep your body strong against the familiar ravages of drug use–tuberculosis, hepatitis, abscesses, infections, etc. — as well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal. If you’re eating right, you’ll have more energy for productive activities and will have more strength to fight cravings.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) has many benefits for drug addicts who also choose to quit smoking. It is an effective technique at this treatment center that provides smokers with the nicotine they are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes to wean them off entirely. You can reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, irritability, bone loss, stroke, type II diabetes, fertility in women, an enhanced sense of taste and smell.
