Jeffery CaudillSenior Vice President WestCare - Boggs Intensive Residential Program

In addition to routine police services, Jeff was in charge of the oversight for homicide, sex abuse (to include child sexual abuse investigations), narcotics investigations, and public corruption. Jeff holds a Juris Doctor degree from the Appalachian School of Law, and he is a licensed attorney in the state of Kentucky. Over the last several years, he had the opportunity to see firsthand the benefits that WestCare brought to his home state. Prior to WestCare's entrance in Kentucky, the community was tired of witnessing individuals and even children dying on a regular basis from drug overdoses. WestCare and its dedicated staff made a profound difference to the state, and they have helped so many people gain a second chance at life. Jeff is proud to be a part of such an organization, and he looks forward to working every day to continue to help those in need.Show Bio

Though statewide alcohol use and abuse have been much lower than the national average in recent years, illicit drugs are still causing significant issues for Georgia residents. Because the number of those in need of treatment is so high, state officials are working hard to mitigate the damage and come up with creative responses to the many problems that result, including:
- Higher rates of unemployment
- Higher rates of unpaid emergency medical care
- Higher rates of crime
- An overburdened jail and court system
- An overburdened social services system
For the Georgia families who are struggling to figure out how best to support their addicted loved one, these issues are far more personal. They can often mean:
- Job loss and an inability to find new employment for the addicted family member
- A decreased ability of other family members to work due to added pressure caused by the addiction
- Bankruptcy and foreclosure
- Less contentment at home
- Broken relationships, even divorce and loss of child custody
If addiction is hurting your family, don’t wait to seek help. Our counselors are standing by at the phone number listed above and waiting to help you find the best drug addiction treatment program for your needs.
The Worst Offenders
When it comes to substances, which ones are causing the most problems for Georgia families? According to a survey published in Georgia Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance by the Substance Abuse and Mental health treatment Administration (SAMHSA), the most commonly named drugs of choice among drug rehab patients in Georgia are:
Over the past 15 years, survey results show that alcohol has become less and less of the primary issue, and that more and more people are abusing illicit substances. Cocaine use has remained relatively steady, but marijuana abuse and methamphetamine abuse have been creeping up over the past few years.
Also, more and more often in Georgia, patients are seeking help fighting dependence for illicit drugs. Alcohol-only admissions have decreased and about half of Georgians who seek help for alcohol abuse or addiction also seek help for dependence upon another substance as well.
Residential Treatment Options Available in Georgia
Only 27 percent of the drug rehabs in Georgia offer an inpatient addiction treatment program – the gold standard in addiction treatment. Additionally, only 11 percent of Georgia drug rehabs offer treatment for opioid addiction, according to SAMHSA. This severely limits the rehabilitation possibilities for residents across the state.
Factor in the state and federal budget cuts, the low pay and high turnover of staff members at government-funded facilities, and the high number of patients waiting for a very few spots in treatment, and it makes it even harder for Georgia families to get the treatment they need when they need it.
Increasing Opportunities for Effective Medical Drug Treatment
When it’s impossible to find the treatment you need in your own backyard, what do you do? Accept subpar treatment and hope for the best? Absolutely not. Don’t waste your time and hard-earned money on treatment programs that are destined to be ineffective from the start.
Improve your loved one’s chances of a successful recovery by enrolling them in a treatment program that provides them with everything they need to heal from detox through aftercare.
