Private Clinic Columbus is an outpatient medication assisted treatment program aiding individuals with addiction to prescription pain medicine and/or heroin.

To promote the widespread national observance of SAMHSA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration) National Recovery Month, Private Clinic Columbus will lead a recovery event on September 8, 2016 which is intended to support people in recovery and draw attention to critical prevention, treatment, and recovery support services.

This week’s events are a part of Recovery Month, a national observance sponsored by SAMHSA, within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The observance raises awareness of mental and/or substance use disorders, celebrates individuals in long-term recovery, and acknowledges the work of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services.

According to the Center for Disease Control there were 47,055 reported overdose deaths in 2014 of which 18,893 deaths were related to prescription pain relievers and 10,574 deaths were heroin related deaths.

The state of Georgia and the city of Columbus are not immune to this epidemic.  Together we can join forces and educate the community on the severity of this addiction and provide them with the hope and proper services they need to stop using and start living.
