    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse

    Drug Rehabilitation

    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.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.

    Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at Ascensa Health at St. Jude’s Recovery Center in Atlanta.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like Ascensa Health at St. Jude’s Recovery Center support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids.

Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon.
