Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Marijuana is a very common drug these days, and contrary to popular belief, marijuana is addictive. While the withdrawal process is fairly long compared to other drugs, it is much milder. Finding compassionate, competent care for marijuana addiction is critical if someone wants the best chance of recovery.
Our Approach to Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Our marijuana addiction treatment program here at The Summit Wellness Group is a multifaceted and integrated approach that utilizes medical and psychiatric care, clinical therapy, and holistic practices to provide the most well-rounded and comprehensive treatment and recovery solution for our clients. Many people who end up abusing marijuana and becoming addicted are also struggling with some other co-occurring mental health condition or substance use disorder, and addressing these through a combination of techniques is what provides the best chance for long-term recovery.
Marijuana use and addiction are becoming increasingly prevalent, and a huge factor is that many people don’t believe they can become addicted. This lack of awareness about the drug’s long-term effects (which still aren’t entirely understood) is dangerous and can cause damage to both the brain and the body. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable, so the best chance at sobriety is through professional treatment.
Our marijuana addiction treatment programs are tailored to the needs of each individual client, although our programs do follow 3 common steps:
Step #1 – Possible Need For Detox and Withdrawal Management
Though many people do not need to detox from marijuana as there aren’t many physical side effects for withdrawal, those suffering from a co-occurring mental health condition may need to visit a detox facility or be prescribed medications to help with withdrawal. These medications can be antidepressants, non-benzodiazepine anti-anxiety medications, or sleep aids, and may make the transition process a little easier.
Step #2 – Forming a Treatment Plan
We understand that everyone has their own unique experience, and with this comes specific struggles, needs, and desires. We work with our clients to tailor a treatment plan that is unique to them, taking into account all of the variables of their life and situation. While the exact layout of treatment may vary from person to person, the high quality of comprehensive care does not. Some variables we consider include:
- The way someone used marijuana (smoking, edibles, vaping)
- The amount of marijuana someone regularly used
- The length of time someone used marijuana
- Co-occurring drug use
- Pre-existing or co-occurring mental or physical health issues
- Someone’s current housing situation
- A client’s commitment to their recovery
- Insurance coverage or self-pay
Step #3 – Individual Care
Through a combination of medication, clinical therapy, and holistic techniques, our comprehensive care plans provide the highest level of care possible. Though these plans are individualized, clients will typically be involved in some form of integrative talk therapy, which includes cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, or motivational interviewing. Medication management may be necessary for individuals struggling with mental health conditions alongside addiction. Our holistic techniques, such as yoga, meditation, or therapeutic fitness teach overall wellness and equip our clients with tools for positive coping.
Other forms of therapy we offer include:
- Trauma-Informed Care
- Art Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Chiropractic Care
- Therapeutic Fitness
- Adventure Activities
