Marijuana Addiction Treatment

woman in denim shirt considers marijuana addiction treatment Like any drug, marijuana, when misused, can be addictive. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is the most commonly used addictive drug after tobacco and alcohol. The best approach? Personalized treatment. Each individual person’s needs are different, and their treatment journey should reflect that. The best marijuana addiction treatment centers offer patients customizable treatment plans to address their individual needs. Connection is key in the treatment of substance abuse, and building a support system that will last long after you leave treatment is a big part of the equation.

Signs Someone Would Benefit from Marijuana Addiction Treatment 

You might be wondering what marijuana addiction looks like. First, it’s important to understand what the signs of marijuana use can be.

  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Inappropriate giddiness 
  • Increased appetite for unhealthy snack foods (aka the munchies)
  • Poor coordination
  • Lethargy and wanting to sleep a lot

Next, you should look for signs of marijuana misuse or overuse. These can include:

  • Becoming secretive
  • An increased heart rate
  • Lack of focus
  • Disinterest in normal activities

People tend to think that marijuana use does not lead to addiction, but it can just like alcohol and tobacco or other drugs. Studies show that almost half of the adult population in the United States have tried marijuana once in their lives. A growing number of states have legalized—or are looking to legalize—marijuana for both medical and recreational use. 

How Treatment Can Help

Types of therapeutic approaches can include:

  • Experiential therapies – This may be yoga therapy, music therapy, meditative therapy or acupuncture therapy to help you to heal on a physical and emotional level.
  • Motivational interviewing – This can empower those battling addiction to find their own reasons for gaining and maintaining sobriety.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – This type of cognitive-behavioral therapy is a mental health treatment that is based on the belief that change is possible.
  • Individual therapy – This one-on-one therapy gives you the chance to work with a therapist on your specific needs.
  • Group therapy – Having the support of peers as you work through treatment can be invaluable.
  • Men’s and women’s addiction programs – These gender-specific groups offer a safe and supportive environment for men and women going through treatment.
  • Family therapy – Counselors work with you and your family at your own pace to help you address the issues that are causing stress and conflict around your addiction.
