What’s Marijuana Drug Rehab Like?
Promises’ marijuana addiction treatment is grounded in research. It’s also engaging and motivating. Our goal is to help you get sober and create a life that’s fulfilling and enjoyable without drugs or alcohol.
Assessments That Ensure Comprehensive Treatment
We’ll assess your physical and mental health to make sure we’re addressing all of your issues. People with marijuana use disorders often have underlying depression or anxiety that contributes to substance abuse. Our clinicians will create a unique treatment plan for you based on our assessment findings.
Medical Detox From Drugs and Alcohol
Marijuana can be addictive. You may be psychologically addicted to marijuana and have a physical dependence on the drug. This means you could experience withdrawal when you quit using marijuana. People who use marijuana often abuse other substances like alcohol.
Marijuana addiction treatment at Promises includes medical detox from drugs and alcohol. We help you kick marijuana dependence with medications that ease withdrawal symptoms. Our treatment centers also offer alternative approaches like acupuncture, massage therapy and mindfulness. These can help you deal with the long-term effects of marijuana withdrawal like depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances.
Mental Health Treatment
Marijuana addiction treatment is most effective when it addresses all of the issues that fuel drug or alcohol abuse. You may have unknowingly started smoking marijuana to ease anxiety or depression symptoms. Promises treatment team attends to co-occurring mental health disorders like depression, anxiety or personality disorders. Substance abuse and mental health treatment includes regular psychiatric care. We’ll prescribe medications as necessary to manage psychiatric symptoms. You’ll meet with our psychiatric team to assess improvement and adjust dosage as appropriate.
You’ll have individual counseling sessions with a licensed therapist. Promises’ mental health professionals are trained in approaches that get to the root causes of your addiction to marijuana. Identifying emotional pain from past trauma and other difficult experiences is a critical part of drug treatment. Drug abusers often try to numb feelings with drugs and alcohol. Your individual therapist will help you acknowledge the impact these challenges have had on you. They’ll help you learn healthier coping skills to deal with these issues going forward.
Group Therapy With Peers
Promises drug rehab includes several small groups everyday. Group therapy helps you build friendships with others who understand what you’re going through. This is an important part of staying sober. Group therapy also helps you develop better interpersonal skills and confidence. Through interactions with others you’ll gain new insights into yourself and your issues.
Our rehab centers provides a variety of treatment options that keep you active in recovery. We offer individual and group therapy as well as experiential approaches. These may include:
- Yoga and mindfulness
- Equine therapy
- Adventure therapy
- Acupuncture and massage
- Creative approaches like art and music
Planning for Life After Drug Rehab
You’ll plan to minimize addiction risks and marijuana’s long-term effects after you leave treatment. Recovery from pot addiction is a lifelong endeavor. We’ll arm you with healthy coping skills, recovery resources and self-care activities that keep you strong in recovery. Aftercare planning may include scheduling appointments with therapists and psychiatrists. We’ll also connect you with support groups and our Promises alumni groups.
Why You Need Inpatient Rehab to Get Better
With nationwide efforts to legalize marijuana and a rise in medical marijuana, the validity of an addiction to marijuana is often questioned. The fact is, marijuana addiction is real. Like other addictive drugs, inpatient rehab is often needed to combat marijuana dependence.
Marijuana is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the U.S. You can be both physically and psychologically addicted to it. Marijuana abuse and addiction is recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as cannabis use disorder. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) classifies it as a Schedule I controlled substance with high potential for abuse. Without treatment from professionals trained in addiction medicine, you’re at risk for relapse.
Drug rehab for marijuana addiction helps you:
- Address the reasons why you abuse marijuana like:
- Emotional pain
- Low distress tolerance
- Poor self-worth
- Trauma and mental health issues
- Get expert treatment for mental health disorders that fuel substance abuse such as:
- Personality disorders
- Have space and time away from triggers in day-to-day life that lead to marijuana abuse.
- Learn relapse prevention skills and healthy self-care activities to help you stay sober after drug rehab.
If you don’t get proper treatment for marijuana addiction, you continue to put yourself at risk for:
Marijuana users who have taken high doses of the drug may encounter acute toxic psychosis. This may include:
- Depersonalization — a loss of their sense of personal identity or self-recognition
Acute Respiratory Problems
People who use marijuana may have similar respiratory problems as tobacco smokers. These may include:
- Daily cough and phlegm production
- Frequent acute chest illnesses
- Increased risk of lung infections
- Greater tendency toward obstructed airways
Impaired Immune System/Frequent Illness
THC impairs the immune system’s ability to fight off infectious diseases and cancer.
- In laboratory experiments that exposed animal and human cells to THC or other marijuana ingredients, the normal disease-preventing reactions of many of the key types of immune cells were inhibited.
- In other studies, mice exposed to THC or related substances were more likely than unexposed mice to develop bacterial infections and tumors.
- A study of 450 individuals found that people who smoke marijuana regularly but do not smoke tobacco have more health troubles and miss more days of work than non-smokers do.
- Many of the extra sick days utilized by the marijuana smokers in the study were for respiratory illnesses.
Marijuana use may promote cancer of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract. This is due to irritants and carcinogens in the drug. A study comparing 173 cancer patients and 176 healthy individuals shows smoking marijuana increases the likelihood of developing cancer of the head or neck. It also shows that the more marijuana smoked, the greater the risk. A statistical analysis of the data suggests that marijuana smoking doubles or triples the risk of these cancers.
