Two Leaders Joined in the Fight Against Addiction

RiverMend Health Centers of Gerogia Affiliation with Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University.RiverMend Health Centers specializes in treating drug and alcohol addiction, dual disorders, eating disorders, obesity and pain management through its statewide network of detoxification programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs).

With our affiliation with the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, RiverMend Health Centers provides greater access to scientifically-driven treatment for those suffering from addiction-related illnesses.

Addressing the unique challenges of addictive disease demands a new and unprecedented level of collaboration between scientists, doctors, patients, educators, policy makers, and most importantly, the citizens of Georgia.

Expanding partnerships across the state to include Georgia schools and universities, and community and religious organizations will increase awareness, deter substance abuse and increase access to treatment. Adding additional education in Addiction Medicine to the curriculum of Health Care Professionals in training and to continuing education for current practitioners will help provide more access to quality treatment for Georgians in need.

This renewed commitment to research, education and treatment is essential for changing the current trends in drug abuse prevalence, mortality, healthcare costs, and the human suffering associated with addictive disease.
