The Discovery House offers a marijuana addiction treatment program for individuals who have become addicted to marijuana and need help to get clean. Marijuana is the most commonly abused illicit drug in America. Many people struggle with this kind of addiction, but are afraid to get help.
Marijuana abuse is widespread. According to the NIDA, more teenagers are now current smokers of marijuana than of cigarettes. The marijuana plant is grown illegally in homes and on properties in America for the purpose of being sold or used recreationally. This drug is smoked, brewed, or mixed in food. The active ingredient in marijuana passes quickly into the bloodstream and brain. It targets brain receptors that influence thinking, concentration, and movement.
Someone who is under the influence of marijuana will suffer from lack of coordination, memory loss, difficulty learning, and trouble concentrating. Over time, an individual who is addicted to marijuana may have a problem with every day tasks that require concentration and memory. They may become depressed and unmotivated.
Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Marijuana abuse causes many problems among users. Individuals may give up things in life in order to get high. They may lack the motivation to keep their job, or meet their normal responsibilities. Marijuana abuse causes impairment, and can lead to poor decision making like unsafe sex, risk taking, and drugged driving.
One of the biggest problems with marijuana is that users often do not think the drug is having an impact on their lives. They may deny they have a problem, or that they are not functioning as well as they would if they were sober. These individuals may continue on with their lives continuing to spiral downward, not even knowing they have a drug problem. Marijuana addiction treatment is necessary for these individuals to help them understand the negative impact the drug is having on their lives, and help them learn to live without their substance.
