Marijuana Addiction Treatment in Oklahoma City

Consistent marijuana use can cause many problems in a person’s life. Our Oklahoma City marijuana treatment center can help treat your addiction.

What is marijuana?

Marijuana is a psychotropic drug produced by the Cannabis plant. This drug is primarily found in the flowers, or buds, of the plant and can be used in several different ways. Marijuana is commonly smoked in joints, blunts, pipes, or water pipes called bongs. A vaporizer can be used to inhale vapors produced from marijuana or a liquid marijuana extract. An increasingly popular way to use marijuana is through the consumption of edibles, various foods (such as brownies, cookies, or candy) that are infused with the drug. You can also drink teas that have been brewed with marijuana. 1

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary mind-altering chemical found in marijuana. THC acts on specific cannabinoid receptors that are mainly found in areas of the brain responsible for concentration, thinking, sensory and time perception, pleasure, memory, and coordination. 2 The over-activation of these areas by THC causes a pleasant euphoria and sense of relaxation. Other commonly experienced reactions to marijuana include heightened sensory perception, laughter, altered perception of time, and increased appetite. 3

Adverse consequences of marijuana use

Some of the more unpleasant effects of marijuana use include anxiety, fear, distrust, panic, paranoia, hallucinations, increased heart rate, reduced blood pressure, difficulty concentrating, impaired motor coordination, and impaired memory. Marijuana use also alters judgement and decision-making, increasing the likelihood that you engage in risky behaviors. 4 Marijuana use decreases cognitive function and increases the risk for mental illness, polysubstance abuse, and respiratory illnesses like chronic bronchitis. 5-6 Long-term use can also lead to the development of marijuana dependence and addiction.

Marijuana abuse in Oklahoma

An estimated 43.5 million Americans used marijuana during the past year, making it the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States. 7 Around 1 in 14 Oklahomans currently use marijuana, and nearly 1 in 8 have used marijuana in the past year. 8 Marijuana use is most widespread among young adults, with 1 in 6 Oklahoma residents aged 18 to 25 reporting current marijuana use and nearly 1 in 3 reporting past-year use.

Unfortunately, the use of marijuana is also an issue facing Oklahoma teenagers. Nearly 1 in 8 10th grade students have used marijuana in the past month, and over a quarter of all high school sophomores have tried marijuana at least once. Around 1 in 6 12th grade students currently use marijuana, and nearly 4 out every 5 high school seniors have tried it at least once. 9 Sadly, 1 in 16 Oklahoma high school students report trying marijuana for the first time before the age of 13. 10

Marijuana abuse is a major health issue in the state of Oklahoma. Last year, there were 1,730 admissions to Oklahoma marijuana treatment centers in which marijuana was reported as the primary drug of choice, accounting for 1 out of every 8 admissions in 2019. 11

Marijuana detoxification (or detox) is a critical first critical step to recovery and must be completed before the start of any therapy. During the detox process all marijuana and accumulated toxins will be flushed from your system. Despite having a reputation as a harmless drug, many marijuana users develop a dependence on marijuana that causes them to feel withdrawal symptoms when not using the drug. 12 Marijuana withdrawal symptoms can include: 13

  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Decreased appetite
  • Depression
  • Craving
  • Tremor
  • Sweating
  • Increased heart rate
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Due to the intense cravings and severe discomfort that can arise after the discontinuation of marijuana use, undergoing a medically supervised detox provides you the best chance to complete detox and prevent relapse. At Landmark Recovery, our trained clinical specialists will closely monitor you during the entire detox process. Our doctors can administer certain medications to help reduce cravings and alleviate uncomfortable symptoms related to marijuana withdrawal while undergoing your marijuana addiction treatment. These drugs include antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, medications for nausea and vomiting, mild pain relievers, and sedatives for sleep difficulties. 14

Following detox, you will be ready to enter a rehabilitation treatment program. Landmark Recovery offers a number of marijuana addiction treatment options for people trying to overcome marijuana dependence or addiction.
