A one-time heart surgeon from Macon, Georgia, was recently convicted of operating a “pill mill.” At one point, the doctor was receiving and dispensing more OxyCodone than any other facility in the state. It’s a sad testament to addiction that he had so many customers.
If you’re one of the nearly 9,000 people in Macon who are hooked on drugs or alcohol, we care deeply for you and hope to see you heal.
Why Professional Rehab Facilities Are Best
Your decision to stop using is no doubt a sincere one, but addiction is hardly ever beaten with willpower. Treating this chronic brain disease calls for tried-and-true methods.
Your treatment plan will be designed especially for you after a careful evaluation of your mental health history. Your background and current circumstances will also be taken into account. Only a qualified specialist with a solid track record can recommend the best care.
Also, you may experience physical effects or mood swings when you suddenly stop using. During withdrawal, our detox professionals will closely monitor your health, keep you comfortable and offer emotional support.
Approaches to Recovery
Your treatment will be comprehensive and may combine several of the following methods:
- Individual counseling for uncovering the mental issues, traumatic experiences or negative emotions that factor into your addiction
- Couples or family counseling
- Cognitive behavioral therapy for pinpointing triggers to substance abuse
- Peer support groups
- Nutrition and exercise classes
- Vocational or legal services
- Social outings with others who want to stay sober
- Mentorship programs, 12-step meetings or self-help classes

Should You Travel for Treatment?
For many of those addicted to drugs or alcohol, your first course of action will be in deciding geographically where you want to attend treatment. While those who are interested in outpatient care will be best served by attending a treatment center in their hometown, those who are concerned about privacy or who need to make special arrangements for their care may be interested in going to surrounding cities and traveling for treatment.
For example, you may prefer a faith-based approach to recovery that matches your religious choices. In other situations, your choice of drug and alcohol rehab center may be solely based on how holistic the center’s approach to recovery is. In either of these cases, travel may be necessary in order to fulfill your personal requirements for treatment. We can help you make the decision on whether or not travel for treatment will be the right choice for you or your loved one.
