Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana Rehab in Thailand

Many people think, even claim, marijuana is not addictive, including some drug experts. In fact, rather than calling it an addiction, they’ll refer to it as a substance use disorder. The fact is, marijuana addiction is real and many people who have abused marijuana for long periods suffer from it. These people experience cravings just like any other addict does. They have a deep psychological dependence on the drug, as well. It is, after all, a drug. So, of course you can become addicted to it. Just as only a percentage of people who use alcohol become addicted to alcohol, it is a small percentage of people who use marijuana that become dependent on it. Marijuana addiction can lead to distorted perceptions of reality, difficulty with problem solving, problems with learning, memory and recall problems, impaired coordination, slow reaction time, anxiety, paranoia and more. Over a period of time the dependence on marijuana can become so strong that the psychological dependence can be every bit as intense as any other addictive drug. Like any other addictive drug the marijuana addict will compulsively seek the drug without regard to responsibilities of work, or school, and without regard to the negative impact on social circles, family, or even themselves.

Marijuana Addiction Treatment

Marijuana addicts will often try to quit on their own only to experience irritability, sleep issues, anxiety, decreased appetite and cravings which make it very difficult for the addict to stay clean and usually results in relapse. People seeking treatment for marijuana addiction also often have a co-occurring disorder, such as depression or trauma, which would also require treatment. They often exhibit an addiction to other drugs, as well. Unfortunately, because marijuana addiction is often disputed, not all treatment centers accept people solely addicted to marijuana and, if they do, the program may not actually be a suitable fit for the addict. It is important to find a treatment program that takes this addiction seriously and that can actually benefit the addict.
