If you’re seeking treatment for your addiction, we’d like to take a moment to congratulate you. We also understand you will have lots of questions.
Here are some common questions we are asked about addiction and the treatments and programs we offer at Metro Atlanta Treatment in Marietta, GA.
Q: What Substance Abuse Disorders/Addictions Do You Treat?
Q: How Do You Help A Person Overcome Addiction?
A: We partner with you to create the right program for your unique needs. Each of our treatment programs involves therapy and holistic components like volunteering, adventure-based counseling, arts and culture, and wellness activities.
Q: Why Are Opioids So Addictive?
A: There are two kinds of opioids – legal and illegal drugs. Legal opioids are pain relievers that a doctor may prescribe like codeine, morphine, oxycodone (OxyContin®), Hydrocodone (Vicodin®), etc. Illegal opioids are synthetic, such as fentanyl and heroin. When taken as directed, prescription products may be safe, but many people have fallen into the trap of addiction with these drugs, as they trigger feelings of euphoria. Opioid prescriptions can quickly lead to addiction and experimentation with illegal drugs.
Q: What Is Fentanyl?
A: Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. Its potency is one of the many reasons people become so addicted to it so quickly. Fentanyl is one of the most abused and the most dangerous opioids.
Q: How Do You Treat Opioid, Heroin, And Fentanyl Addiction?
A: Heroin, fentanyl, and prescription painkillers are all opioid drugs. Traditionally, opioid addiction can be treated with medication-assisted treatment, a program that we offer at Metro Atlanta Treatment.
