Marijuana is a dangerous and habit-forming psychoactive substance that causes harm in communities across the world. People use marijuana for the effects of its main chemical ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC creates a high that results in relaxation, heightened senses, paranoia, and tiredness. Marijuana use can be dangerous, but we want you to know that help is available. Contact Lakeview Health by calling 866 552 6557 to learn more about our marijuana addiction treatment program.
If marijuana use interferes with your work or social life but you can’t seem to cut back or quit, it is an addiction.

You can get the support you need by contacting a substance abuse treatment center to find treatment programs designed with your care in mind. From detox to long-term sobriety support, Lakeview Health provides help at every step of the way.

Treatment for addiction begins when you decide that you are ready to change your life. It starts with the withdrawal process, which can take some time, as symptoms can continue to show up even after you have stopped using marijuana for good. Symptoms of marijuana withdrawal can include:
Feeling anxious or nervous, or generally restless
Trouble eating or feeling sick
Difficulty concentrating and being irritable or angry
Physical pain, such as fever, headache, chills, or sweating.
It can take a week or so for you to experience marijuana withdrawal symptoms, and you will need support while you experience withdrawal.

The time range of treatment for marijuana addiction differs for each person in treatment, depending on factors such as overall health, history of addiction, or the presence of mental health disorders. Because detox is not necessary for marijuana addiction, treatment plans focus more on the psychological addiction to marijuana. The level of care depends on the severity of the addiction. For example, some may benefit from a residential treatment program, while others may thrive in an outpatient or inpatient treatment program. Our Lakeview Health team will collaborate with you to see which program may be best. Also, our team revisits treatment plans periodically to ensure that the level of care is best for your recovery journey.

People with a drug addiction often become secretive, hiding the extent of their problem. It may start small with missing a family event or not calling as often. Things may progress to the point where you realize that you haven’t heard from them in a while. Efforts at getting them to participate in social events may be rebuffed. They may self-isolate or become secretive. Things can escalate even when you both live in the same household. Your loved one may disappear for days at a time. They may resent any efforts at trying to figure out what they’ve been doing with their time.
