Marijuana Drug Treatment in Orange County

The Peaceful Retreat Where You Can Recover from Marijuana Dependency

Marijuana, medically known as cannabis but more commonly called weed, pot, herb, or grass, is touted as safe and harmless by advocates. Many also say it has medicinal uses, like treating chronic illnesses, owing to its organic properties. Because marijuana is legal for both medicinal and recreational use in California, many underestimate the harm it can cause. In fact, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) found between that 25-50% of marijuana users smoke or otherwise ingest the drug daily, the hallmark sign of addiction. However, recognizing marijuana addiction can be difficult, precisely because it is so widely available and very easy to get.

As with most drugs, regular use results in a rapidly building tolerance to the substance. This will lead marijuana users to hit the bong or pipe again and again just to feel the same high they experienced when they first started smoking. When this happens, you may feel like it’s impossible to feel good without marijuana, making it very difficult to quit cold turkey as a psychological addiction takes hold.

Is Marijuana Addictive?

NIDA research has shown that marijuana use disorder is indeed real. This disorder is associated with dependence on marijuana, which occurs when a person feels withdrawal symptoms from not taking the drug. Once you develop a psychological addiction to weed, your entire world can seem off balance. Dependence results when the brain has adapted to large amount of marijuana and withdrawal symptoms start when the drug is not available.

Some of the symptoms of marijuana withdrawal include:

  • Irritability
  • Increased or decreased appetite
  • Restlessness or insomnia
  • Anxiety and paranoia
