Drug Addiction Rehab in Kennesaw
Treatment for Drug Dependency in Cobb County
There is no “one size fits all” approach to recovery. Depending on the type of drugs a person is using, the length of time that they have struggled with addiction, and what they hope to gain from treatment, every person’s plan for recovery will be different.
The team at North Georgia Recovery Center creates individualized treatment plans for people who are in treatment for drug addiction. We provide free consultations to people who are seeking treatment so we can familiarize ourselves with the needs of each patient and build a plan that is attuned to every unique situation. Additionally, we have a referral program in case a patient is in need of a service that we do not currently offer. We aim to get our patients the treatment they need, no matter what.

Drug Treatment Programs at North Georgia Recovery Center
We customize each of our patient’s recovery plans to ensure that treatment is tailored to their specific needs. Your treatment may involve any combination of our rehabilitation programs and therapy methods.
We offer two treatment programs: Our partial hospitalization program and our intensive outpatient program. Within each of these programs, we offer multiple options for therapy, education, activities, and other forms of treatment.

North Georgia Recovery Center offers the following drug addiction treatment programs:

Intensive outpatient program (IOP) — In our intensive outpatient program, we utilize group connectivity and individualized treatment to address patients’ struggles with addiction in a community atmosphere.
Outpatient group and after care — Following your completion of treatment, we encourage continuous individual and group therapy sessions to strengthen you in recovery. We will continue to stay in touch with you after you complete treatment and remain invested in your rehabilitation.

Identifying Signs of Drug Addiction
If you suspect that your loved one may be struggling with drug addiction, there are certain physical and behavioral changes to look out for.
When it comes to drug abuse and addiction, there are a variety of physical changes to the body as a result of drug use and even withdrawal symptoms after they stop. While you may not be able to tell what kind of drug your loved one is using, there are tell-tale signs that they may be struggling with addiction:
Signs of Current Drug Use
When someone has recently used drugs or is currently on drugs, there are a multitude of physical changes that can be observed as a side effect. Some common side effects of being under the influence of drugs include but are not limited to:
- Sudden weight changes
- Bloodshot eyes
- Enlarged pupils
- A disheveled appearance
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Slurred speech
- Poor coordination
After abruptly stopping drug-use or going long periods of time without using, a person who is addicted to drugs will experience physical symptoms which are called withdrawal. In severe cases, this can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. Signs of withdrawal typically include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Confusion and trouble concentrating
When a person is struggling with drug addiction, there may be changes in their behavior that suggest that they have a problem. While these changes in behavior don’t always point to addiction, they are some of the most commonly observed behaviors in drug addicts:
- Declining work performance
- An increased need for privacy
- Showering less often
- Not grooming themselves
- Wearing dirty clothes
- Disinterest in previously enjoyed activities
- Less present in relationships
- Spending more money than usual
- Defensiveness or denial when confronted about having a drug problem
- Lack of energy
- Changes in appetite
Individualized Drug Addiction Treatment Programs
During your initial consultation with us, please provide information about your substance use. Descriptions of the types of drugs you use and other details will help us create a plan that will be beneficial for you.
At North Georgia Recovery Center, we have specialized rehabilitation programs for people who are struggling with addiction to:
- Benzodiazepines (including Xanax, Ambien, and Valium)
- Prescription drugs
There are many different types of substance abuse cases we assist with. Although we offer specialized programs, these are not the only types of drug addictions we help with. We also have treatment programs for people who struggle with alcohol addiction and abuse.
Breaking the Stigma of Drug Addiction
There is often a strong, negative stigma attached to individuals who struggle with drug addiction. Seen as burnouts, criminals, "low lives," weak, immoral, or products of broken families, addicts are often looked down upon by those who have never dealt with addiction firsthand.
The truth of the matter is that drug addiction is a chronic, progressive disease that does not discriminate in who it affects. According to the Substance Abuse an Mental Health Services Administration 23.5 million Americans deal with some sort of substance addiction, translating to one in every 10 Americans over 12 years old. Shockingly, only 11 percent of those with an addiction ever receive treatment.
While choosing to take drugs may start as a choice, a person does not choose to become addicted. At North Georgia Recovery Center, we recognize this and offer our drug rehab services to all who seek help without judgment or prejudice. We know what it is like to struggle with addiction and are prepared to stand with you every step of the way on your journey to sobriety.
What Happens After Drug Rehab?
Recovery from drug addiction is an ongoing process that must continue long after you have completed rehab to minimize your risk of relapse. At North Georgia Recovery Center, we proudly provide an outpatient group specifically designed to support former patients and connect them with other people in the same situation as theirs, allowing them the opportunity to express their emotions, concerns, and progress in a safe environment.
