Landmark Recovery of Denver can help you overcome marijuana dependence and get you on the path to recovery. We are proud to offer the highest quality of care, medical detox, and evidence-based treatments in a caring environment at our new marijuana recovery center in Aurora, Colorado.
Marijuana use in Colorado is not new, but since recreational marijuana was legalized in the state in 2013, usage has increased statewide and has impacted residents in multiple ways. Hospital visits and fatal accidents involving marijuana increased, and so have the percentage of fatal vehicle accidents.1 In 2018, the Colorado Department of Transportation announced that 27% of people surveyed admitted they drove high almost daily.
With THC concentration (the primary ingredient in marijuana) tripling 12% from 1995 to 2014, the risks of using marijuana also have increased; this is because higher doses of THC are more likely to cause anxiety, agitation, paranoia, and psychosis. 2 Those with a marijuana addiction who are taking high doses of THC are also at risk for developing cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, which causes severe nausea and vomiting.3
Receiving evidence-based treatment at an addiction recovery center is incredibly important if you are struggling to overcome a marijuana dependence. But, unfortunately, many people do not seek out the care that they need. Recent data shows that only 14.8% of people who entered a rehabilitation program for marijuana did so of their own accord.4
At Landmark Recovery, our sole purpose is to provide those battling an addiction a bridge to a brighter future. We believe no one will be more dedicated to helping you live beyond addiction. Here’s why:
What can you expect, specifically, from Landmark’s marijuana treatment?
Once you have made the decision to begin your marijuana recovery, you must go through detox to flush out all traces of marijuana from your system. Like other forms of addiction, this dependence will cause you to experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop using marijuana.5 Our team of clinical specialists will provide around-the-clock care and administer medications to ensure your safety and comfort.
After detox, you will be ready to join our program for the therapy phase of your recovery. We offer a number of science-backed treatment options. Individual and group counseling are often combined with behavioral therapy, which studies have shown to be a very effective form of marijuana treatment.6 Various forms of behavioral therapy will be used to identify the root causes of your marijuana addiction and equip you with new behaviors and coping skills you will need to prevent relapse.
Landmark Recovery understands that successful treatment does not end the day you leave our facility. After completing treatment, you will have access to our fully integrated support network. Our alumni program includes a discharge plan, a recovery coach assigned to you, and weekly events and programs you can attend like SMART Recovery and 12 step meetings.
