Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.
Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. The specific mental health issues that the patient at Atlanta VA Health Care System - Gwinnett County Clinic might have include but are not limited to:
- Bipolar Disorder
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
The specific addiction issues that the patient might have include but are not limited to:
- Drug Addiction (i.e., Cocaine, Meth, and other stimulants, Marijuana, and Ecstasy)

Dual Diagnosis, Mental Health
Levels of Care Offered
offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Dual-Diagnosis, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Lawrenceville, GA Outpatient Program
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction or a co-occurring disorder. The treatment must attend the treatment facility for their therapy and other programs but return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of the treatment program is complete. The treatment programs are monitored by the treatment facility and case managers who work for a judge or judge’s office. A treatment program may be performed out of a treatment facility, treatment clinic, or treatment center.
The benefits of outpatient treatment programs are many. One of the most beneficial treatment programs is that it allows treatment for clients who cannot afford or may not be able to attend treatment at a treatment facility, treatment center, or treatment clinic full-time. Another benefit of treatment programs is that they reduce crime rates because treatment allows people to treat their addiction.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
This type of addiction treatment is available at Atlanta VA Health Care System - Gwinnett County Clinic for people who need more time and attention than an outpatient program can provide. This type of program is beneficial for people who have low motivation due to addiction, or have a lack of support at home which prohibits them from being able to attend a traditional addiction recovery program.
PHP is beneficial to:
- Individuals who have very low motivation to recover from addiction as a result of the severe consequences they are facing as a result of their drug or alcohol use.
- People with a mental health diagnosis combined with addiction.
- People who need to be closely monitored due to the fact that they are not able to function well enough on their own.
- People who do not have strong social support or other treatment options available to them at home such as family or individual therapy.
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.
Recovering drug addicts need aftercare support when they leave treatment. The support can include guidance through 12-step programs, outpatient rehabilitation programs, and support groups. Aftercare supports the individual in their desire to maintain sobriety by reducing relapse risk with positive choices.
The success of drug treatment does not end when the addict leaves the rehabilitation center. There is no such thing as a “one and done” type of rehabilitation process. Recovery is a lifelong journey that begins with treatment and continues by the addict committing to outside support groups or drug rehab programs.
When choosing a program, it is crucial to choose one that will provide long-term aftercare support. This ensures that you have the tools you need to sustain your recovery.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual.
Individualized Treatment is essential because it gives addicts the ability to participate in a program that meets their unique needs. An addict should work with professionals who understand what they’re going through, especially if the addict is actively using. Finding the right treatment program for an addict is difficult, but it’s even harder without communicating with those who have experience treating your specific situation.
Couples therapy is a treatment approach where the patients and their partners are engaged together. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and his people, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases. Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.
The therapies typically involve all family members, potentially including siblings, children, and parents who play a role in their daily lives. These sessions can be essential because they address past issues that may have affected an addict or alcoholic’s recovery process. They provide support during this time when it is needed most!
A family therapy session, often called a family meeting or intervention, is a necessary process that helps loved ones of addicts see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things families will ever have to do when they’re facing a loved one battling addiction or alcoholism.
Group therapy sessions provide recovering addicts with a chance to cope with everyday situations that many face. Group therapy sessions are held in rehab facilities, clinics, churches or community centers that offer drug addiction treatment.
People who attend these groups are encouraged to voice their feelings and support other addicts in recovery. This helps group members strengthen their own recovery program while cheering on others who are struggling with sobriety.
Trauma therapy allows them to work through past trauma to have peace of mind and begin down the road of sobriety. The therapist will work with the individual to help them understand their past and present relationships. Patients may often believe that something is inherently wrong with them or they are unworthy of love. The therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.
