Landmark Recovery’s Praxis of Fort Wayne is strategically located to offer treatment for those struggling with a marijuana addiction in the state of Indiana and surrounding areas. Our mission is to support your well-being in mind, body, and spirit as you develop a lifestyle free of addiction.
Like the rest of the nation, Indiana’s most commonly used illicit substance is marijuana.1 The 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 15.6% of the Indiana population over the age of 12 had used marijuana within the year, with ages 18 to 25 being the largest group using the drug at 35.8%.2
When it comes to treating marijuana use and addiction, 48.6% of Indiana treatment admissions in 2018 were for marijuana, compared to the national percentage of 31%.3
A mind-altering drug produced from the Cannabis sativa plant, marijuana’s primary ingredient TCH (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) travels through the bloodstream and connects to cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells, resulting in a “high” as an individual uses the drug.4 Typically smoked, 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.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 1 in 10 people who use marijuana will become addicted, and that number rises to 1 in 6 if the individual begins using before the age of 18.5 Even though marijuana can be addictive, it is used widely throughout the United States, according to recent findings:
While there is little risk of overdosing from marijuana, there are still plenty of risks. The long-term risks of becoming addicted to or dependent upon marijuana include:10
Overcoming both habitual and chronic marijuana use often requires getting treatment from the right professional rehab facility. Landmark Recovery’s Praxis of Fort Wayne offers evidence-based therapy, detox services, and a personalized treatment program at our marijuana addiction treatment center.
The first step in your marijuana addiction recovery will be to immediately stop marijuana use and prepare your body and mind for rehabilitation through detox, the natural bodily process that flushes out all traces of drugs and toxins from your system. Chronic marijuana users who have developed a dependence on the drug will likely experience withdrawal symptoms, which can be uncomfortable and lead to relapse. If this is the case, our trained clinical specialists will monitor you around-the-clock and provide you with 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.11
Following detox, you will be transitioned into a personalized treatment program that has been tailored to meet your specific needs. Depending on the severity of your addiction and any unique challenges (such as a co-occurring mental health disorder), you 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 your marijuana addiction and teach you healthy behaviors and coping mechanisms that are needed to resist future urges and prevent relapse. Some of the evidence-based behavioral therapies incorporated into our marijuana treatment programs include cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, and motivational enhancement therapy.12
