Marijuana Addiction Treatment & Rehab

At Align Recovery Centers, we understand the challenges and complexities of marijuana addiction. About 30% of marijuana users may have some degree of marijuana use disorder, and individuals who begin using marijuana before the age of 18 are four to seven times more likely to develop a disorder than adults. Our comprehensive marijuana addiction treatment program is designed to help individuals break free from the grips of substance abuse and reclaim their lives. With a combination of evidence-based therapies, personalized care, and a supportive environment, our residential and detox facility offers a path to recovery for those struggling with marijuana addiction.

Our approach includes thorough assessment and detoxification, residential treatment featuring individual, group, and family therapy, and holistic therapies such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and nutritional counseling. Recovery from marijuana addiction involves more than just abstaining from drug use; it requires building a fulfilling and sustainable life in sobriety. Our life skills training helps clients develop practical skills for daily living, such as managing finances, finding employment, and maintaining healthy relationships. Before completing our program, each client works with our team to create a comprehensive aftercare plan, including outpatient therapy, support group meetings, and continued access to our counseling services. At Align Recovery Centers, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to individuals struggling with marijuana addiction.

Understanding Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana, also known as cannabis, is often perceived as a benign substance. However, for many, it can lead to dependency and addiction. About 9% of people who use marijuana will become dependent on it, and this number increases to about 17% for those who start using in their teens. Regular use of marijuana can result in tolerance, where more of the drug is needed to achieve the same effect, as well as withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, insomnia, and loss of appetite. These symptoms can create a compulsion to continue using the drug despite adverse effects on one’s health, relationships, and daily life. Understanding these risks is crucial for recognizing the potential dangers of marijuana use and the importance of seeking treatment.

Signs and Symptoms of Marijuana Addiction

Recognizing the signs of marijuana addiction is crucial for seeking timely help. Common symptoms include:

  • Increased tolerance and needing more marijuana to achieve the same effect.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, and sleep disturbances when not using marijuana.
  • Spending a significant amount of time obtaining, using, or recovering from the effects of marijuana.
  • Neglecting responsibilities at work, school, or home due to marijuana use.
  • Continuing to use marijuana despite experiencing negative consequences in various areas of life.

If you or a loved one exhibits these signs, it is essential to seek professional help to address the addiction. At Align Recovery Centers, we offer comprehensive marijuana addiction treatment to help individuals overcome these challenges.

Our Approach to Marijuana Addiction Treatment

At Align Recovery Centers, we provide a holistic and individualized approach to marijuana addiction treatment. Our program is tailored to meet each client’s unique needs, ensuring a comprehensive and effective recovery journey. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), nearly 4 million people in the United States met the criteria for a marijuana use disorder in 2015, highlighting the widespread nature of this issue.

Assessment and Detoxification

The first step in our treatment process is a thorough assessment to understand the extent of the addiction and any co-occurring mental health issues. This evaluation helps our team create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all aspects of the individual’s health and well-being.

While detoxification is not typically necessary for marijuana alone, it may be required if other substances are being used concurrently. Our detox program provides a safe and supportive environment for clients to manage withdrawal symptoms under medical supervision. This phase is crucial for stabilizing the individual and preparing them for the next steps in their recovery journey. Our comprehensive approach ensures that all underlying issues are addressed, setting the foundation for a successful recovery.

Residential Treatment Program

Our residential treatment program offers a structured and supportive environment where clients can focus entirely on their recovery. During their stay, clients participate in a variety of evidence-based therapies and holistic treatments designed to address the underlying causes of addiction and promote overall well-being.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy sessions provide clients with a safe space to explore the root causes of their addiction, develop coping strategies, and set goals for their recovery. Our experienced therapists use various therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to help clients change negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with marijuana use.

Group Therapy

Group therapy sessions foster a sense of community and support among clients. Sharing experiences and challenges with peers who understand what they are going through can be incredibly therapeutic. Group therapy also provides opportunities to learn from others, practice social skills, and build a support network. Many clients who seek our marijuana addiction treatment also find it beneficial to discuss other substances and issues in group settings.

Family Therapy

Family involvement is a crucial component of our treatment program. Family therapy sessions aim to heal relationships, improve communication, and educate family members about addiction and recovery. A robust support system at home can significantly enhance the chances of long-term sobriety.
