How Will I Be Able to Find Substance Abuse Treatment Programs in Cleveland, Georgia?

Question by ayah a: How will I be able to find substance abuse treatment programs in Cleveland, Georgia?
I’m doing this for a special project in school. As part of my report, I wanted to be able to include a few interviews of people who are undergoing a substance abuse treatment program. Does anybody know how I can get a hold of contact numbers of treatment centers?
