The Children of Addiction

A&E’s Emmy-award winning show, Intervention, focused for the first time on the area of North Georgia dubbed “The Heroin Triangle”, which is the area roughly within Cobb, Fulton, Gwinnett, and Dekalb counties stretching north of Atlanta. The area came to the attention of the show’s producers due to a report done by a local news station, NBC’s 11Alive, and is the first time that “Intervention” focused the entire season on the people of one geographic area, some of whom are even related to one another.

While the show features some of its previously aired interventionists in the series, they also feature a new face to the show, local interventionist Heather Hayes, who works with the family of a man named Zac to get him into treatment. Hayes also tries to help  his father, Mark, who has battled alcoholism for years. One of the statistics that the show states is that the children of people with substance use disorders are 3 to 4 times more likely to become addicts themselves. The National Institute of Health supports this statistic, and the clinical team at Centered Recovery understands that family care can be an integral part to any recovery, whether other family members suffer from addiction or not. We offer a non-12 step recovery program that focuses on the whole health of the individual, helping them regain their own natural mental health resiliency, and in turn, physical and emotional health that affects every aspect of their life, not just helps get them “sober”.

If you or a loved one is suffering from an alcohol or drug addiction and you’d like to see how Centered Recovery can help, please call 800-556-2966. If you’re a parent who struggles with addiction, there is no better time than now to get help, for yourself as well as the future health of your children.
