Marijuana Treatment in Colorado

Marijuana Treatment

Overcoming chronic or habitual marijuana use means getting the right treatment from a professional rehab facility. Landmark Recovery of Denver offers the highest quality of care, evidence-based therapy, and personalized treatment programs for patients struggling with a marijuana addiction or marijuana dependence.

Quick Facts About Marijuana

Marijuana – or its more common name, weed – is a mind-altering drug produced from the Cannabis sativa plant, and currently, the most commonly used illegal substance in the United States at the national level.1 However, it is legal in over two dozen states and in Washington, D.C., 2 with laws around both recreational and medical marijuana changing often.3

The primary ingredient in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). When a person uses marijuana, THC travels through the bloodstream, connects to cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells, and results in a “high.”4 Marijuana influences the parts of the brain that control pleasure, memory, concentration, and coordination, which can lead to loss of coordination, difficulties thinking and problem-solving, and distorted perception.

Is marijuana addictive?

  • Recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health data revealed that 48.2 million Americans – or 17.5% of the population – used marijuana in 2019, with 4.8 million reporting a marijuana use disorder.6
  • Some who use marijuana regularly or long-term have been found to have an increased risk of psychosis or schizophrenia.7

Can you overdose on weed?

While it is not likely to overdose on marijuana, there are still plenty of risks with using the drug. The long-term risks of becoming addicted to or dependent upon marijuana include:8

  • Permanent IQ loss
  • Negatively affecting mental health (depression, anxiety, psychotic episodes)
  • Harmed athletic performance, specifical coordination
  • Impacting pregnancy (fetal growth restriction, premature birth, stillbirth, stunted brain development)
  • Affecting quality of life (relationships, career, and educational problems and reduced satisfaction with life)

 

What You Can Expect From Marijuana Rehab at Landmark Recovery

If you or a loved one are struggling with marijuana addiction in Colorado or the surrounding area, it is highly recommended that you consider professional marijuana treatment from a local, licensed, and accredited addiction treatment facility. Landmark Recovery of Denver offers evidence-based therapy, detox services, and a personalized treatment program at our marijuana addiction treatment center.

Detox

Chronic marijuana users who have developed a dependence on the drug will likely experience withdrawal symptoms, which can be uncomfortable and lead to relapse. The first step in marijuana addiction recovery will be rehabilitation through detox. Our trained clinical specialists monitor patients around the clock and provide certain medications – such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, mild pain relievers, and sedatives – that can help alleviate the negative symptoms and intense cravings that are often experienced during marijuana withdrawal.9

Rehab

Following detox, patients are transitioned into a personalized treatment program that has been tailored to meet their specific needs. Depending on the severity of the addiction and any unique challenges (such as a co-occurring mental health disorder), patients may receive marijuana treatment services through a combination of residential, partial hospitalization, or intensive outpatient programs. The cornerstone of Landmark Recovery’s holistic marijuana addiction treatment programs is behavioral therapy, the most effective and proven form of marijuana treatment. Behavioral therapy will help identify the underlying causes of the marijuana addiction and teach patients healthy behaviors and coping mechanisms that are needed to resist future urges and prevent relapse.

Recovery

Landmark Recovery understands that successful treatment does not end the day a patient leaves our facility. After completing rehab, patients have access to our fully integrated support network. Our alumni program includes a discharge plan, a recovery coach assigned to the patient, and events and programs like twice-weekly SMART Recovery meetings and weekly 12 step meetings.
