Georgia brings to mind peaches, the Atlanta Braves, and Atlanta’s talented musicians. The city has emerged from Jim Crow laws to a quickly growing state with much promise. Home of the 1996 Olympics, the state has challenges with substance abuse. For example, from 2011 to 2014 there was a 300% increase in Heroin related deaths. Within 4 years, the number of Heroin related deaths jumped from 276 to 863.
