Johns Creek, GA, July 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- DecisionPoint Wellness LLC, an innovative outpatient treatment facility for individuals and families fighting the disease of addiction, announces the launch of its Heroin Education and Recovery Optimization (H.E.R.O) Program designed for individuals seeking abstinence from heroin and opiates. The H.E.R.O. program is only for heroin and opiate addicts. Groups are made up of peers who struggle with the exact same problem, and the curriculum was created to address the unique issues faced only by this population. The program is flexible, and each person’s treatment plan is highly individualized. In addition DecisionPoint Wellness is the only location in the Johns Creek area that has a weekly Heroin Anonymous meeting. The meeting is held every Friday at 8:00 PM with the first meeting on July 8th at 10700 State Bridge Rd. Ste. 6, Johns Creek, GA.
“The H.E.R.O. Program was designed to help individuals combat the growing epidemic of heroin and opiate addiction that has been highlighted in the Atlanta media recently,” said Mike Reis, CEO of DecisionPoint Wellness. “The number of individuals addicted to heroin and opiate in the four metro Atlanta counties of Fulton, Cobb, Gwinnett, and DeKalb is staggering as is the increase in deaths related to this addiction. It is our belief that the H.E.R.O. program will combat this growing addiction.
“In addition to the H.E.R.O. program, DecisionPoint holds the only meeting of Heroin Anonymous in the Johns Creek area,” continued Reis. “This meeting held every Friday at 8 PM is critical for the successful recovery of every heroin addict.”
The H.E.R.O. program treatment is based upon the on four pillars:
I. Addiction Education regarding heroin and opiate dependency.
II. Sober support networking
III. Relapse dynamics and prevention
IV. Family restoration.
Addiction to heroin and other opiates is a national crisis that is striking the Atlanta community in overwhelming numbers. Johns Creek, GA, where DecisionPoint Wellness is located is prominently located "Inside The Triangle" where an investigation uncovered a 3,844% increase in heroin related deaths over the last five years in a cluster of four counties – Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb and DeKalb. That percentage climbs to 4100% with the addition of new heroin-related deaths found in reports in just one week (April 11, 2016). The H.E.R.O program and hosting Heroin Anonymous meetings are ways that DecisionPoint is helping combat this growing crisis.
DecisionPoint Wellness also has a dedicated 2000 square feet of space within their facility to create a warm, inviting, and safe atmosphere called The Legacy Club. This environment gives struggling addicts a place to rebuild their lives or form positive relationships with other recovering addicts and their families. The Legacy Club features healthy snacks, beverages, coffee, free Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, video games and scheduled events. This is the first of its kind in the Atlanta area.
