Cannabis Addiction Treatment

Contrary to popular belief, cannabis, or marijuana as it is otherwise known, is extremely addictive. Once a person develops an addiction to cannabis, they will find it difficult to function normally without it.

At Neuro Psychiatric Addiction Clinic (NPAC), we offer a specialized treatment plan for people struggling with marijuana addiction. This treatment aims to detoxify the body and return it to normal functioning. Our treatment also addresses the mental health issues that may have contributed to the addiction, allowing for long-term recovery.

What Is Cannabis?

Marijuana refers to the flowers of the cannabis plant. After these flowers are harvested and dried, what remains is one of the most consumed drugs in the world, known as marijuana, pot, or weed.

Today, cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in the United States. Classified by the federal government as a Schedule I substance, cannabis has a high potential for abuse. Ways of using cannabis include:

  • Brewing it as a tea
  • Smoking or vaping
  • Taking it as a supplement
  • Eating edible cannabis-infused candy

Containing more than one hundred and twenty chemical components called cannabinoids, cannabis has significant detrimental effects. It is also extremely mind-altering. When consumed, cannabis users may experience:

  • Paranoia
  • Short-term memory impairment
  • Heightened sensory awareness
  • Increased anxiety
  • Mild euphoria

Despite being touted as non-addictive, marijuana can be very difficult to give up. The truth is that many people with addictions do not see it as a problem, and their friends may share that view.

Although cannabis may not be physically addictive, its psychological dependence can be intense. There are numerous examples of how mental dependencies can lead to behavioral disorders.

According to new research, 30% of marijuana users may have some form of marijuana use disorder. Just because a substance isn’t life-threatening doesn’t mean it isn’t incredibly harmful to your mental health and can’t devastate your life.

If you struggle with cannabis addiction, our treatment programs will help you work through withdrawal and achieve a sustainable recovery.

Health Dangers Of Cannabis

Cannabis is harmful to our psyche, body, emotions, and behavior. For individuals prone to mental health problems, the use of cannabis can lead to additional complications. For example, it impairs normal sleep patterns and results in depression, anxiety, and mood swings. According to studies, cannabis can also trigger psychotic episodes in rare cases.

In the long run, marijuana highly tampers with personality. People who use marijuana develop a resistance to its effects, hence requiring larger doses to experience the high. Consequently, they may feel some of the following side-effects in the long run:

  • Reduced ability to learn
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of memory
  • Panic attacks
  • Lung infections
  • Inhibited mental development

Cannabis Addiction Symptoms

When a person develops an addiction to marijuana, they often show several symptoms, including:

  • Irritable mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Food cravings
  • Restlessness
  • Graphic dreams

Moreover, the presence of the following signs may indicate that you're addicted to marijuana:

  • Loss of interest in activities - You may lose the drive to pursue social and recreational activities you once enjoyed.
  • Increased tolerance - Your body develops a resistance to the effects of marijuana, and you’re compelled to take more to achieve the same effects.
  • Inability to quit - Those addicted to marijuana find it hard to stop using it, even if they experience adverse effects.
  • Suffering relationships - Paying less attention to your social and romantic life and pulling away from people who disapprove of your using cannabis.
  • Withdrawal symptoms - These include anxiety, depression, restlessness, or physical problems after stopping marijuana.

If you’re experiencing any of these signs and symptoms, it is time to seek help. At NPAC, our experts can assess your condition and determine whether your cannabis use has become problematic.
