Jefferson Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
A part of Jackson County, Jefferson is located in northeast Georgia. It is just about an hour north of the big city of Atlanta. Named after President Thomas Jefferson, the city is over 200 years old. Jefferson is known for its economic opportunities as well as its acceptance of newcomers. The town boasts a small-town feel while being just a short drive to the big city life in Atlanta. It proudly maintains that small-town feel while still striving to further develop with the times. A recent development in the town is several different drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs. Incorporating the welcoming feel of the small town and the modern day technology needed to run the facilities to the best of their ability, Jefferson is an ideal place to look into addiction treatment.
Risks of Addiction
A person suffering from an addiction is at a much greater risk of injury, illness, trouble with the law, and even death. When under the influence, a person is much more likely to make poor decisions or choices they would not have made had they been sober. This means that, as an addict, you are more likely to contract a sexually transmitted disease and even HIV. Poor judgment may lead to unsafe sex or the sharing of needles. Both of these are ways to contract HIV and both of these are more likely to happen if you are under the influence.
Another obvious risk of drug addiction is the abuse your body must endure. Depending on what drugs a person is using or how much alcohol they are ingesting, a person can be at a much greater risk for different types of cancer. There are a slew of mental and physical issues that can develop, both short term and long term. If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction, contact us now before it is too late.
