Alcohol and Drug Use Statistics in Marietta, GA

Like much of the U.S., Marietta has seen an increase in opioid use and related opioid overdoses in recent years. The Georgia Department of Public Health reported the following statistics for Fulton County and the corresponding substate region:1,2

Levels of Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Drug and alcohol rehab settings vary in intensiveness and structure. Here’s more about the levels of care:


When you receive drug detox, a team of doctors and nurses monitor your withdrawal symptoms while the drug or alcohol leaves your body, ensuring your safety and comfort. This usually occurs first before starting formal addiction treatment services.

Residential or Inpatient

You reside at the treatment center for 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days, while receiving a myriad of treatment modalities, such as individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, support groups, experiential therapies, and addiction treatment medications.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs)

A step down from inpatient rehab, you live at home while attending between 20 and 30 hours of counseling per week.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs)

Less intensive than a PHP, IOPs involve living at home while attending between nine and 20 hours of therapy per week.

Standard Outpatient

Standard outpatient involves just a few hours of therapy per week and may not be the best option for someone who doesn’t have a strong support system or who is struggling with a severe addiction. It may be better used as a step-down option after completing an inpatient or PHP.


Once you complete your addiction treatment program, you’ll want to make sure to continue receiving ongoing support to prevent relapse. This can look like joining AA, NA, or SMART Recovery, or attending ongoing therapy. Some people transition into sober living homes before returning home.

How to Pay for Drug Rehab in Marietta, Georgia

There are many ways to finance your addiction treatment to reduce the financial burden.

Private Insurance

Health insurance providers are required to cover substance abuse treatment and mental health services to the extent that they do surgical and medical benefits. If you have private insurance, you can likely get partial or full coverage for drug rehab. Contact your provider for more details.

Georgia Medicaid: Peach State Health Plan

Georgia’s Medicaid, or Peach State Health Plan, provides health insurance coverage for low-income Georgia residents. Medicaid covers drug and alcohol rehab, although you will need to find a rehab that accepts Medicaid.


Georgia Medicare covers Georgia residents aged 65 and older as well as those with certain medical conditions and disabilities. It covers addiction treatment services, like medication-assisted treatment, outpatient rehab, and inpatient hospitalization. Like Medicaid, you’ll need to find a drug rehab that accepts this form of payment.

TRICARE in Georgia

TRICARE in Georgia provides health insurance coverage for veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families. Many drug and alcohol rehabs accept TRICARE.

Sliding Scale Rehabs

A sliding scale rehab only charges you what you can reasonably pay based on your income and financial situation, greatly reducing the cost of treatment and increasing access.

IHS-Funded Drug Rehabs

The Indian Health Services funds addiction treatment programs that provide free care to Indigenous people. Most of these IHS-funded rehabs are on reservations, although a few are elsewhere.
