Alcohol And Drug Rehab Treatments For Military In Georgia

Within the state of Georgia, many different resources can be found for drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment for military personnel, service members, and veterans. Illicit drug use may not be as common in the military as it is with the civilian population, but it still does occur. With the military's zero-tolerance policy and random frequent drug tests, it has helped curb illicit drug abuse in the military. Cases do still pop up with it occurring, but not as frequent. As with any form of addiction, finding the right drug and alcohol treatment is very important. Each program will offer something different and will operate at different lengths of time as either a residential or outpatient center. For example, a program will offer individual counseling, group counseling, meetings of different types, life skills building courses, and other forms of conventional therapy and treatment.  Residential programs will operate anywhere from two weeks, 28 days; all considered short-term treatment, with the longer-term residential programs running for three to six months at a time.

These longer-term programs are very beneficial for individuals who are suffering from severe long term addictions and have been through other short-term programs before. An outpatient program is very common for military personnel as it will deal with a lot of counseling and provide a support network for them and their family. These programs are essential in helping service member’s deal with their problems and addiction and move on with his or her life in a positive way. The military has many different support options for its members, such as the Army Substance Abuse Program that provides treatment, support, and prevention services to military personnel and their families.
