Georgia OxyContin Rehabs

 Successful Oxycontin drug rehab treatmentAs is true with most drugs, OxyContin abuse will take the user on a dwindling spiral and will continue downward until action is taken. Now is the time to take action before it is too late. Quality of life for the user and for those around him will continue to decline. Past failed attempts to overcome addiction only further depresses the individual so it should come as no surprise that fear of losing control further could stop the individual from reaching out and allowing others to help. In the state of Georgia, there is an increased need for workable drug rehabilitation programs.

DEA Facts

The DEA1 (United States Drug Enforcement Administration) reports that the diversion of hydrocodone and oxycodone products (such as Vicodin®) and OxyContin®) continues to be a problem in Georgia. Primary methods of diversion being reported are illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping” (going to a number of doctors to obtain prescriptions for a controlled pharmaceutical), and the Internet. Xanax® and Lorcet® were also identified as being among the most commonly abused and diverted pharmaceuticals in Georgia. 

Published Reports

Oxycontin rehab need

The Georgia Department of Labor sent a letter to employers with t he Subject: OxyContin. Re: Letter to Business Insurance on OxyContin and Workers' Compensation. Abuse of OxyContin and other narcotics is not only a growing problem in our society at large, it is of increasing concern for the workers' compensation system. In case you missed it, here is an informative letter on this subject (please scroll down) which appeared in the Oct. 6 issue of Business Insurance (BI) magazine. The author, Wayne McOwen of GUARD Financial Group, submitted this letter on behalf of the National Association of Independent Insurers (NAII). Kudos to Wayne, who also serves on the UWC Board of Directors! The NAII communication is one of the several initiatives which UWC is aware of within the insurance industry, addressing the narcotics abuse problem.2

The National Drug Intelligence Center in an Intelligence Bulletin report dated August 2004, OxyContin Diversion, Availability, and Abuse, stated, "OxyContin is prevalent in every region of the country. However, law enforcement reporting indicates that the availability of diverted OxyContin may be stabilizing and has decreased in some areas. For example, law enforcement reporting indicates that OxyContin availability has decreased in areas covered by the Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) and DEA Field Divisions in Detroit, Miami, and Philadelphia. Nevertheless, NDTS 2003 data reveal that 67.0 percent of state and local law enforcement respondents nationwide report that OxyContin is a commonly diverted or illicitly used pharmaceutical in their areas--higher than any other prescription narcotic including Percocet (52.2%), codeine (50.4%), Percodan (44.6%), and Dilaudid (27.5%). More agencies in the Southeast (83.9%), Northeast/Mid-Atlantic (75.0%), Great Lakes (65.4%), West Central (61.8%), and Pacific (56.9%) regions report that OxyContin is a commonly diverted or illicitly used pharmaceutical than in the Southwest (28.6%) region."

The Damage to Society

Need for Oxycontin drug rehabIn the State of Georgia, the effects of drug and alcohol abuse goes way past the the damage done to the addicts themselves. In terms of time lost on the job, to the health system inundated by illness and overdoses to communities harmed by the crime rate caused by addicts looking to steal anything in order to get their next fix, to families living a nightmare as they watch helplessly as their loved one goes further down the chutes. The rollercoaster of emotions, concern and anger seems like a never ending ride the abuser puts his friends and family through. Failures in the past with drug rehab centers further numb the addict to any hope of a future without drugs. It truly can appear hopeless. It quickly becomes self-evident there is a real need for a successful drug addiction treatment.

Treatment Center Changes Needed

Just in the state of Georgia, there are many different types of drug rehab and treatment facilities. In the United States, there are thousands of drug rehab and treatment centers treating alcoholism to OxyContin addiction. Of course the common goal of all addiction treatment programs is to help end addiction for the individual. In Georgia and across the United States, a variety of techniques and methods are being used. Some of the well known treatment methods in Georgia include the twelve step method, relapse prevention, one-on-one counseling, drug rehabilitation, behavioral modification, cognitive therapy, support groups, sober living, therapeutic communities, AA , NA, inpatient, and outpatient drug rehab programs. There are many types of treatment centers available in Georgia, so making a decision can be difficult. Unfortunately, many uninformed people in Georgia go from rehab to rehab looking for the one that is right for them.

In Georgia, there are many attempts being made to meet the needs of drug addicts, but statistics show success rates to be dismally low. What is needed and wanted is a drug treatment which not only handles physical addiction, but finds the underlying reasons why a person turns to drugs in order to free the person forever. What Georgia addicts, alcoholics and their family, friends and loved ones need is a real and effective drug rehab treatment center; one where they are not on a time schedule or use other drugs to get the addict off the original drugs. The addict needs a reliable proven program where when they are done, their drug addiction is a thing of the past and they are now able to live full productive lives free of the stronghold of drugs or alcohol.

Should an Oxycontin addict attend a treatment program close to home?

Decision to enter drug rehab

Addiction is not just drug and alcohol use, it revolves around people and things in their immediate environment which help to trigger that addictive behavior. The abuser's location and routines of drug use further trigger drug use. It is the constant and seemingly unstoppable use of drugs and the hopelessness of day to day existence which perpetuates the problem and inhibits the native desire to stop ruining their life through the use of self medicating.

The above factor should not be over looked when considering a drug rehab treatment center location. The first two weeks of treatment are always the most difficult. There many factors at work which make this so. In addition to what has been covered above, a more basic factor is this - people are creatures of habit. Even overwhelmingly positive and beneficial changes in life, such as the birth of a child or a new job do not guarantee the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities such as drug or alcohol use, their drug buddies and other associated activities. Factually this is the normal reactive auto response of most human beings - to do what they are familiar with - good or bad. It is not really that they yearn for these things, but it is all that they have known for some time. If the abuser is close to home when the overwhelming feelings manifest themselves, there is a good chance they will leave and get back to what they know, drug addiction. Due to these factors, attending a drug rehab close to home is seldom the correct treatment option for chronic drug abusers. It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from their former association with the medicine cabinet, bars, the cigar box where their staff was stored, etc. All these triggers make the task of sobriety seem insurmountable to the chronic user as these triggers continuously stimulate a reminder of their past addictive behaviors.

For individuals with a severe drug or alcohol addiction problem, choosing a long-term inpatient treatment program is another key to a successful outcome.
