Marijuana Abuse

For those suffering from marijuana abuse, quitting can be similar to quitting other drugs. While the physical aspects of marijuana withdrawal are less severe, many marijuana users can experience significant psychological symptoms that are associated with the withdrawal process. Some who quit using the drug may not experience withdrawal symptoms. Those that do may experience the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Intense dreams
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Moodiness
  • Lack of hunger
  • Abdominal pains
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness

People Can Experience Withdrawal from Marijuana

Marijuana abuse withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, and many will use marijuana instead of enduring symptoms. It is imperative for those who are addicted to enter treatment at a Florida marijuana addiction treatment facility. While many addicts may not experience the sharp physical symptoms of withdrawal, our experienced treatment staff can use the detox process to perform a comprehensive evaluation. This can be used to diagnose any underlying co-occurring mental disorders in the client.

As each client becomes medically stable, they will shift to a more formal and intensive drug treatment. During this stage, clients will undergo a combination of individual and group therapy, life and coping skills education, and other holistic-based therapy options such as yoga and nutritional therapy. The individual treatment program considers the unique circumstances of each client. Furthermore, it can be modified as the client’s needs change during treatment.

Medical Marijuana is Not Your Father's Pot

Today, more and more states are legalizing marijuana or making it readily available for medically approved uses. However, the variety has changed significantly in recent years. Medical marijuana dispensed in many states is highly concentrated in THC and strong. This is because it is biochemically engineered. Additionally, today's variety in legal dispensaries includes edibles and liquid concentrates, which are extremely potent and can last up to eight hours. Moreover, since they are absorbed in the liver, their potency can increase significantly. Liquid concentrates and edibles have been known to cause certain nausea and vomiting syndromes, such as cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. This can send users to a hospital emergency room and can be easily confused with an upper gastrointestinal virus. Typically, this occurs when marijuana concentrates are abused over time.

Marijuana Addiction Treatment – Levels of Care

At Simple Path Recovery, we offer a range of progressive treatment phases. Typically, clients start out in our PHP program, then move forward into IOP and OP as they step-down with increased response to treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – This is our most intense addiction treatment program. Clients reside in off-site housing and are transported to our treatment facility daily. Clients are monitored at all times.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) – This stage of treatment is for clients who are ready for step-down care from partial hospitalization. The IOP program runs three times per week. Clients generally starting working or resume school.

Outpatient Treatment (OP) – Clients live independently and make individual appointments with their therapist on an ongoing basis. Video telehealth is also available for outpatient care.
