How to Find the Right Treatment for Marijuana Use Disorder

Marijuana is popping up everywhere. It can be a hard substance to give up. The increasing social acceptance of the drug makes it seem like it is safe to use. Most people with addiction don’t think they have a problem and people who don’t have one thing they’ll never become addicted. Those who receive treatment are people with chronic use of marijuana on a daily basis. 

Quitting Marijuana

Although marijuana is not physically addictive, psychological addiction can be powerful. Behavioral disorders are great examples of mental dependency. More people than ever think marijuana is tolerant or acceptable. Legalization is happening everywhere lately and people are accepting marijuana as mainstream. It does not mean dependence or addiction will increase. The key is to think about how to quit using it if it becomes a problem. Misconceptions about the addictive nature should not stop people who need treatment from receiving it. 

Detox and Withdrawal

Some people may be surprised to hear marijuana may produce withdrawal effects. They are not severe for some people but cause irritability, anxiety, insomnia, and cravings may kick in. other symptoms include depression, agitation, and mood swings for people who detox from use of marijuana. It is not a drug to be used lightly or without thinking about consequences first. 

Inpatient Treatment

Some people who receive inpatient treatment can kickstart recovery. Of those people, many are placed there by the criminal justice system. There are people who choose this treatment voluntarily and want to seek help. They typically go for up to 90 days and stay there for treatment.


The primary treatment options available for people dependent on marijuana include therapy and support groups. People who get treatment often utilize behavioral health services for mental health aspects of drug use. Undergoing behavioral therapy can help understand addictions and motivations better. This is a great way to arm yourself against cravings and relapses. With a psychological drug like marijuana, it is crucial to implement CBT techniques that support a person’s healing. Support groups are a great method to support a person with the addiction. Because many communities do not offer marijuana anonymous (MA), they may have other ones like NA that are more accessible or provide what the person is looking for in rehab. The goal of rehab is to help the person quit using drugs, heal from addiction in the body and mind, then move forward with healing from addiction in recovery and recapturing their life.
