The approach to the treatment of marijuana dependency is the same as any other substance of abuse.
The goal of treatment is to understand you medically, psychologically and socially so your treatment center can help you understand addiction, how it pertains to you specifically and how you can respond to the triggers that cause you to use.

Signs You May Need Help
The signs that you may need marijuana rehab are very similar for any other drug or substance of abuse. For example, if your use decreases your enjoyment of the things you once found pleasurable in the past you may need help. If you lose touch with or harm relationships with family, friends or associates you may need help. If your use has led you to criminal acts such as driving under the influence or any other illegal activities you may need help. While the times are changing in terms of people’s perspective on marijuana, one thing will always remain the same: if using marijuana negatively effects your life, you should consider help.
Detox and Marijuana Dependency
Detox is not usually required for marijuana dependency, however, many people that are dependent on marijuana may be dependent on alcohol or other drugs. Your treatment center will perform an intake assessment to determine if you need detox. In most cases, if your only drug of abuse is marijuana, you most likely will not need medically supervised detox.
22.2 million Americans used marijuana in the last month, according to a 2015 survey.
MANY PEOPLE ASK:
What will Treatment be Like?
