Marijuana is one of the most commonly abused drugs in our country, falling second only to alcohol. Yet, seeking marijuana addiction treatment is not as common as you’d think.
Because of its legalization in many states and loud activists, the negative effects that marijuana can bring into your life are often dismissed or overlooked.
However, it is a very potent drug that can lead to significant impairment in life. This is especially true for those have engaged in prolonged or excessive use. This is also true for those who began using marijuana early in their lifetime.
If you take the step to seek treatment, we will provide you a personalized approach to give you the strength and tools you need to become sober – and remain sober.
About This Type of Addiction
Many people are known to use marijuana casually. And, you rarely ever hear of individuals overdosing on the drug. Do not let this knowledge lead you to have misconceptions – none of this makes using marijuana safe.
Using marijuana brings physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. These may include:
- Impaired memory
- Inability to concentrate
- Anxiety and depression
- Apathy or lack of interest in life
Of course, it can also lead to hallucinations, paranoia, chronic depression, and disruption of brain development.
The truth? Marijuana is not as innocent as it is portrayed to be, and treatment for marijuana addiction is sometimes necessary.
What typically is not focused on is the negative impact regular marijuana use can have on life as a whole. The symptoms and feelings you get from smoking or ingesting this drug can negatively affect your desire to achieve, grow, and find joy in life.
