Rehabilitation, or “rehab,” is a lifeline for anyone struggling with a substance abuse issue, including marijuana. At Landmark Recovery of Denver, we want to support you during detox, treatment, and beyond as you work toward a life of sobriety. Our mission is to see you achieve physical and mental wellness to navigate the world sober and live the life you dreamed of before addiction.
Even though marijuana is used recreationally nationwide and continues to be legalized by many states, it is classified as a Schedule I drug (along with heroin and LSD) because of its high potential for abuse, even to the point of marijuana use disorder.1 Cannabis use disorder (CUD) is listed along with other substance abuse disorders and can be diagnosed as mild, moderate, or severe depending on the symptoms.2
A marijuana use disorder occurs when an individual becomes dependent on the drug to the point where they cannot stop using even when it interferes with their personal and professional life, or when they experience withdrawal symptoms. In other words, an addiction.
In recent years, the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that roughly 6 million people in the United States met the criteria for a marijuana use disorder, and another study found that previous and lifetime marijuana use disorders were connected with other substance use and mental health disorders.3
Landmark Recovery of Denver offers a full continuum of care for those struggling with a marijuana use disorder. If needed, we offer a medically assisted detox treatment to safely manage any withdrawal symptoms you may have. After detox, we offer residential treatment to then work with you to address the underlying causes that lead to addiction, utilizing a variety of therapeutic and counseling options. We will cover all aspects of addiction and work from the belief that recovery is a lifelong learning process.
For less intensive cases, we offer partial hospitalization for patients who do not require stabilization for the withdrawal but need a transitional program for integrating back into everyday life in their community. Another option is our intensive outpatient program for those who need an ongoing support program but without the inpatient stay.
Regardless of the program that you attend, our strong alumni program – made up of Landmark staff who also have completed our programs – will continue to encourage you to stay connected with a community that supports your sobriety and growth. You will be assigned a recovery coach and can stay plugged in through various events such as SMART Recovery, 12 step meetings, and monthly alumni symposiums.
The cornerstone of Landmark Recovery’s holistic marijuana addiction treatment programs is behavioral therapy, the most effective and proven form of marijuana treatment. Because the National Institute on Drug Abuse has found that people with CUD often suffer from other psychiatric disorders (such as anxiety, depression, etc.) or substance abuse problems, behavioral health therapy has proven successful as a treatment for marijuana use disorder as it addresses the underlying causes that lead to substance use.
Behavioral therapy will help identify the underlying causes of marijuana addiction and teach patients healthy behaviors and coping mechanisms that are needed to resist future urges and prevent relapse.
