Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Georgia

Georgia has been in the midst of the opioid epidemic for nearly 2 decades now. The Atlanta area, in particular, is rife with opioids along with many other types of drugs. Between February and May of 2017, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation found over 50 overdose deaths involving the hyper-potent opioid mixture known as grey death. This mix is usually heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, and U-47700, although the grey death found in Georgia also contained other fentanyl analogues including butyrylfentanyl and acrylfentanyl. Additionally, one of the largest DEA fentanyl seizures ever occurred in Bartow County, just north of Atlanta, where 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of fentanyl were seized. Additionally, as of 2016, Georgia ranked in 5th place for the most hydrocodone or oxycodone overdose deaths out of all states. Furthermore, the presence of counterfeit prescription opioids has been on the rise as well, as in June 2017 over 24 people were admitted to a hospital ER in Macon for taking counterfeit Percocet pills that contained cyclopropyl fentanyl and U-47700. Aside from opioids, cocaine seizures have also been on the rise. In December 2017, a shipment that was bound for Atlanta was stopped in Texas, and upon investigation, it was found to contain 58.5 kilograms (128.9 pounds) of cocaine. Finally, crystal meth has been on the rise as well. In June of 2017, two meth labs were discovered in Georgia that contained a combined total of 300 pounds of dry crystal meth and 219 pounds of crystal meth in solution. While drugs are rampant across the state, the detox and recovery community is vibrant and there are dozens of detox and treatment centers across the state. Entering detox is a crucial first step toward recovery, and there is help available all across the state.
