Drug Abuse & Addiction Treatment Center

You already know that drug addiction can be devastating. What you may not realize is that help and hope are just a phone call away. At Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center, you can get the care that you need to live a healthy and satisfying life.

Residential Treatment

Our Residential Treatment Center

Located in Georgia on 40 sprawling acres snugly nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center specializes in the residential treatment & rehab of men and women suffering from drug addiction and substance related disorders. When you come to our treatment center, you will undergo a thorough medical evaluation to determine the substances in your body and whether or not you will require detoxification before entering our drug addiction rehab center.

Medically-Assisted Detox

Medically-Assisted Detox at Our Treatment Center

If it is determined that you need drug or alcohol detox, we will safely and effectively manage your detoxification process to remove all substances from your body while controlling your withdrawal symptoms. After you’ve been completely detoxed and medically stabilized, you will then enter into our unique addiction treatment center, participating in our rehab process that is based around the 12-step model for addiction.

Opioids

Opioid Abuse Treatment

Opioids are narcotic painkillers that also cause euphoric feelings of calm and well-being in individuals who use these prescription drugs. Common narcotics include OxyContin, codeine, Lortab, Vicodin, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and Roxicodone. All opiates carry significant risks for abuse and addiction.

Prescription Drugs

Prescription Drug Abuse Treatment

Prescription drug abuse is on the rise in Georgia and the rest of the United States. While most individuals use prescription drugs in the way they were intended and don’t have need to enter rehab in a treatment center, up to 20% of individuals in the US have used prescription drugs for a non-medical purpose. The highest rates of prescription drug abuse and addiction occur among stimulants, sedatives and tranquilizers, as well as narcotic painkillers.

Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines Abuse Treatment

Benzodiazepines such as Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin are invaluable tools in the treatment of anxiety disorders. However, all benzodiazepines run the risk for abuse and addiction. Benzodiazepine abuse typically is a secondary drug of abuse used to increase the high from another drug, such as a narcotic, or to reduce the side effects of stimulants such as methamphetamines.

Amphetamines and Methamphetamines

Amphetamines and Methamphetamines Abuse Treatment

Amphetamines and methamphetamines are illegal stimulant drugs that allow the user feelings of increased energy and a euphoric rush. Repeated usage of meth causes changes to the structure and function of the brain, easily leading to addiction and negative health consequences. Amphetamines, often referred to as “speed,” offer a similar rush of energy, elevated mood, and euphoria. Recreational use of amphetamines can quickly cause addiction and severe side effects.

Alcohol

Alcoholism Treatment

Alcoholism is a chronic problem in Georgia and our society as we often view alcohol use with having a good time and living the good life. Individuals who have a predisposition to alcoholism may find it extremely hard to limit the amount of alcohol imbibed and may learn to use it to manage unpleasant emotions or stressful situations. This type of alcohol use can quickly lead to alcoholism and can lead to the need for rehab in a treatment center.

Marijuana

Marijuana Abuse Treatment

Marijuana is one of the most popular recreational drugs and is often considered the “gateway drug,” leading some to abuse more potent drugs. While often marijuana addiction occurs as a secondary addiction, marijuana usage can lead to damaging effects on the body and the brain.
