    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Athens, GA

    Opioid addiction starts when a person becomes addicted to legal or illegal opioids. The addiction can happen quickly, in just a matter of days. Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires medical observation. Sometimes inpatient treatment with a medically supervised detox is necessary for managing the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools for maintaining recovery. Medications may be used in some cases of opioid addiction.

    Opioid addiction is one of Georgia‘s most prominent forms of addiction. It’s treated by detoxifying the body so that the chemicals from the medications no longer impact them and by therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.
