Substance Abuse in Georgia

The southeastern area of the United States has long been known as a major area for transshipment of illegal drugs, but in recent years Georgia has become a local distribution area for traffickers based in Mexico.

  • Cocaine: Cocaine is trafficked through the state by the Mexican drug cartels, and so it is widely available in large or small quantities. Georgia does have a serious problem with crack cocaine abuse as well.
  • Heroin: There is a stable supply of heroin in Atlanta, and the drug is available in Georgia's other cities as well. Colombian heroin traffickers are known to use the Port of Savannah.
  • Meth: Most of the meth found in Georgia comes from out of state sources. Texas and California provide most of the domestic meth found in the state with Mexico as the largest foreign source.
  • Club Drugs: MDMA and GHB are the most widely used club drugs in Georgia. Ecstasy is also easily obtained in the clubs in Atlanta, but Georgia does not have much of an issue with raves in the state.
  • Marijuana: This is the most widely used illegal drug in the state and the vast majority of all the imported marijuana available comes from Mexican drug organizations.

Substance Abuse Statistics

One of the best ways to get a picture of what is going on within a state in terms of substance abuse is to look at the admission statistics for Georgia treatment centers. These statistics have been provided to the state and local governments to determine where the problem lays, which is the best way to determine what steps can be taken to overcome the state’s substance abuse problem so more people can begin getting the help that they need.  

  • Significantly more men than women are admitting themselves to drug treatment centers according to statistics. The total percentage of admissions belonging to men was 63.6 percent, whereas only 36.4 percent of admissions were made by women.
  • The most common cause for admission into a treatment facility was alcoholism, with 26.4 percent of admissions relating only to alcohol abuse without a secondary drug. On the other hand, 12.4 percent of admissions involved alcohol paired with a secondary drug such as marijuana or cocaine.
  • 16.4 percent of all admissions to Georgia treatment centers involved smoked cocaine, and an additional 6.0 percent related to cocaine being taken by another means.
  • 13.7 percent of all admissions to treatment centers in Georgia related to the use of marijuana. 1.9 percent of all admissions to treatment centers were related to the use of heroin. Finally, methamphetamine use in Georgia accounted for 4.6 percent of all admissions into Georgia treatment facilities.

These statistics are eye openers when it comes to understanding what is happening in the state of Georgia. Understanding what substances are being abused and by who will help the state better understand how it can provide aid. The state collects statistics about substance abuse from treatment facilities that tell them about age distribution, race or ethnicity and other demographic details so that the state can better understand why substance abuse is a problem in the first place.


Detox and Withdrawal

Too many people in the state of Georgia are struggling with addiction and substance abuse problems and not getting the help that they need. The problem is not that the help isn't there for them to take advantage of, the problem is that many people are unwilling to admit that they are struggling with a problem that is beyond their control. For many people, committing yourself to Georgia treatment centers means admitting that you cannot overcome your substance abuse problem on your own. What many people fail to understand is that your inability to overcome your substance abuse issues is not actually your fault. Most people cannot tolerate the withdrawal symptoms or resist temptation all around them, which is why Georgia treatment centers exist in the first place.

When you first start abusing a substance, it takes some time for your body to get used to what you are feeling. As you continue to abuse the substance, two things happen. The first is that you start developing a tolerance for the drug and the second is that you begin developing a physical dependence on it. Your body will begin to tell you that you need more of the drug, and you will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms when you do not have enough of the drug in your system. When people quit taking the drug cold turkey, the body responds by throwing as many different withdrawal symptoms as the body can stand. This unfortunately drives many people back to substance abuse again because they cannot handle going through the withdrawal alone.

This is exactly why Georgia treatment centers are so beneficial. Georgia treatment centers are designed to provide people with the help and support that they need when they are going through the withdrawal process. With most abused substances, the withdrawal process is not harmful or deadly, but it can be severely uncomfortable and hard to bear. For some substances, the withdrawal process can be harmful or deadly, making it even more necessary for you to get real professional medical help when you stop taking a substance that you are addicted to or abusing. If you are struggling with a substance abuse problem of any type, getting real help from Georgia treatment centers is often the best decision that you could make for yourself.

You are also going to want to consider if you are looking for short term or long term programs when you are considering Georgia treatment facilities. Short term programs and long term programs often incorporate a lot of different types of therapies in them, and so you want to make sure that you choose a program that is going to last long enough to actually give you the help that you need. If you have been struggling with a substance abuse problem for a long time or if you have repeatedly attempted to quit and failed, then a longer term program is generally going to be the best course of action for you.
