Any Way You Light It…

There are few substance use-related issues more polarizing than marijuana. Proponents tout its considerable medicinal properties and relative harmlessness while detractors continue to rail against it as a public safety issue and dangerous liability to health and quality of life. The truth, as per usual, lies somewhere in between. While the debate continues over whether or not marijuana is a “gateway” drug, anecdotal evidence indicates that many users of more serious substances start off by using marijuana recreationally. The type of marijuana commonly allocated for street-level sales contains a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary hallucinogenic compound in the drug, that severely impairs judgment and puts users in an intoxicated state and potentially dangerous situations. Excessive use of marijuana is also linked to decreased ambition, high-risk behavior and other quality-of-life issues.

You don’t need to know the politics, or even the science, behind marijuana abuse; you just know that you can’t seem to stop and it's taking over more and more of your life. Recovery Unplugged is ready to help you or your loved one extinguish the joint for good and get your head on straight. Call us today at 1 (800) 55-REHAB so we can guide you toward marijuana abuse treatment.

Treatment for Marijuana Abuse

Marijuana abuse very often requires in-depth behavioral rehab to address the psychological ramifications of patients’ use. This process must not only identify the root causes and sustaining factors associated with this behavior, but also the logistical fallout they’ve experienced as a tradeoff for their preoccupation with marijuana, which may include lack of professional mobility, erosion of family relationships and even long-term mental health issues. Marijuana abuse treatment can usually be administered in an outpatient setting and often includes group therapy, individual counseling and certain types of occupational therapies. Recovery Unplugged offers music-based marijuana rehab.

• Dramatic Changes in Mood
• Impaired Body Movement
• Impaired Cognitive Ability

Stop Living Life in a Haze

Despite its clinical efficacy in controlled medicinal contexts, the fact remains that the plant contains mind-altering substances that can impair judgment, slow down motor skills and lead to dangerous behavior and the use of other more serious drugs. While marijuana addiction might not be as large of a threat to the American public as prescription opioid addiction, the drug is still the most commonly abused in the country.
