Newnan Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Newnan is a growing yet peaceful community 40 miles southwest of Atlanta, Georgia. The town began its U.S. life in 1828 and soon grew prosperous as a center for the cotton trade. The town was spared much of the Civil War damage suffered by neighboring towns, so Newnan still retains a NeoGreek Revival courthouse and other period architecture. Residents enjoy a relaxed pace of life, plenty of shopping opportunities, dozens of schools and many upscale housing developments. The theater, history and the arts are promoted in the city, and recreational opportunities are abundant in Newnan through the Coweta County Parks and Recreation Department.

Many films and TV shows are filmed in Georgia, too. Newnan is close to the filming sites of a popular series involving zombies. Residents of Newnan have become accustomed to seeing camera crews and stars out and about their town. One thing that no one in Georgia can get used to is the problem of opioid and other substance abuse. Georgia now ranks as one of 11 states with the highest numbers of prescription opioid deaths. These deaths were preventable in most cases, and future deaths from opioid misuse can be prevented if the public can become better educated about the issue.

One of the most persistent myths about opioid use disorders is the stereotyping of the “typical user.” With opioids — including morphine, hydrocodone, methadone, oxycodone, fentanyl and heroin — there’s no “typical user.” A person addicted to opioids can be a bank president or a retired teacher. Anyone, in a mansion or mobile home, can develop an opioid use disorder because dependence on the drug is one of the side effects of that very drug. Good, loving, responsible people in Newnan have been sucked into the spiral of opioid dependence after a surgical procedure or painful injury. They took the pain pills as prescribed, then found themselves misusing the pills, simply because a certain number of people will have that reaction to opioids. It’s not a moral failure when you develop a drug or alcohol use disorder. It’s simply the science of substances and the frailty of human physiology. Fortunately, there’s help out of the opioid or other substance trap. This guide describes some of the programs and resources available for people who want to recover, including Newnan drug treatment facilities and Newnan alcohol treatment facilities.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

Finding Help & Recovery in Newnan, GA

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers in Newnan, Georgia

Explore all of your options for recovery so you can make the most sensible choice for your situation. The three basic types of rehab programs are similar to treatment plans for other diseases. You can enroll as a full inpatient, partial outpatient and full outpatient depending on your particular medical and lifestyle considerations. Consult with your health insurance policy, union representative, religious institution and fraternal organizations to discover any resources that are available to you for covering the costs of treatment. The three types of rehab plans available at Newnan drug rehab programs and Newnan alcohol rehab programs are listed below.

    Newnan Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential rehab treatment is the most supportive type of rehab for patients with substance use disorders. You enroll as an inpatient, meaning you live at treatment center in a private or semi-private room. In many cases, your meals and other daily needs are provided for you, so you can focus on your rehab responsibilities. You aren’t at the mercy of well-meaning friends and relatives who don’t understand the process of rehab. In nearly all residential treatment plans, patients work through a daily schedule of group therapy and other treatments, which may include meditation, exercise, yoga, art or music therapy. You have free time during each day and evening to rest and regroup.

    Newnan Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs are similar to outpatient rehab plans. You visit the treatment center for your activities, but you return home at the end of the day to sleep in your own bed. You spend more time at the facility than you do in an outpatient plan. This means you’re monitored a bit more closely and you have a higher number of daily tasks to complete than you have in an outpatient plan. Partial hospitalization is often an appropriate choice for anyone who has recently completed residential rehab; the program continues to support the patient with targeted therapies and counseling.

    Newnan Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Many treatment facilities offer an outpatient option for rehab. You must regularly check in to the center. This may mean a daily visit for checkups, counseling and other rehab activities. However, most of your day is free to raise your children, work or attend college lectures. If you want to enter rehab without interrupting your daily life as much, the outpatient plan is one way to accomplish your recovery goals. Outpatient rehab is often chosen by people who have completed work in a residential or partial hospitalization rehab program. These patients don’t necessarily need intensive monitoring, but they often want continued structure and accountability as they work toward healing.

As you can see, each of the three types of recovery programs has its positives for different situations and preferences. You must determine the best program for you based on your lifestyle, duration of substance misuse and level of resources available to you. The intake counselors at The Recovery Village have more information on types of rehab options, including how to pre-qualify, if possible, for a rehab stay.

Newnan Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

When you decide to enroll in a rehab program, your recovery team likely expects you to rid your system of all misused drugs and alcohol (except necessary prescription medications) before your rehab treatment begins. Some facilities offer detoxification (detox) treatment to make it easier on your body and emotions, because withdrawal can trigger a variety of uncomfortable and even life-threatening symptoms in some people. The use of medication and other therapies can lessen many detox symptoms, depending on the substances you’ve used. There are Newnan drug detox programs and Newnan alcohol detox programs available to help. Additionally, The Recovery Village can answer any additional questions you have about the process.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Newnan

For many people, a drug or alcohol problem takes away their sense of dignity. Perhaps there have been embarrassing moments or some criminal behavior related to the substance misuse. Family members and friends may have abandoned you or have worse substance use disorder problems than you have. Recovery meetings have grown over the years to meet the needs of people in recovery, and offer support after you complete drug rehab in Newnan, Georgia or alcohol rehab in Newnan, Georgia. Even if you have a supportive family, a recovery meeting allows you to vent and express frustration in a safe, private environment around people who know what you’re going through.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous has worked hard since 1935 to help people with drinking problems. Its 12-step program is a model for other recovery organizations. In a 12-step program, you learn how you can honestly make amends and admit your weaknesses. You submit to a higher power of your choosing to find peace and help with making positive choices now and in the future. You may be paired with a sponsor or sponsors who are there to let you vent and manage your recovery safely and responsibly.

SMART Recovery Meetings

There are some recovering patients who aren’t comfortable mixing religion and recovery. Whether due to having an uncommon belief system or a deep trust in science, the need to know “what the research says” is very important to these patients. SMART Recovery was organized to address the particular needs of this group of people. Using an evidence-based program that stresses life balance and making wise choices, you may meet people with every type of substance use disorder at a SMART meeting. People with gambling, overeating and other compulsive and impulsive behaviors are welcome to join the groups, too.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

It’s important for the entire family to understand substance misuse and recovery. It’s never a child’s, parent’s or spouse’s fault when a loved one develops a drug or alcohol use disorder. However, the problem does affect all of these people in a household or family group. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are two groups that offer regular meetings in Coweta County for the people who love those who misuse substances. Events, educational resources and social gatherings can help you find fellowship, even if your loved one has not admitted to a problem yet.
