Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at HERO House

Substance Abuse Treatment is important when getting sober, as it helps addicts learn the skills they need to live a clean life. There are many different kinds of recovery treatment, including medication-assisted therapy, behavioral therapeutic approaches and self-help groups, as well as counseling.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Kennesaw, GA

Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.

Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.

The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.

Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.

Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.

Kennesaw, Georgia Addiction and Treatment

Prescription opioid use has caused a large increase in the total amount of overdoses in Georgia. Almost 12% of the Georgia population uses illicit drugs each year, and slightly over 3.5% also abuses alcohol at the same time. This does not include those who binge-drink at least once a month, which includes 20% of all Georgians.

Kennesaw, a suburban city northwest of Atlanta, offers a family-friendly environment with outdoor recreation, cultural attractions, and historical significance. However, Cobb County, where Kennesaw is located, has seen a troubling increase in drug-related deaths, with opioids, particularly fentanyl, contributing to a staggering 73% of overdoses in 2018 and a 97% increase in fentanyl-related deaths between 2018 and 2019.
