The CDC reports that people who are addicted to marijuana are more likely to experience its dangerous physical and psychological effects. These can include breathing problems, nausea, increased heart rate, hallucinations, confusion, paranoia, anxiety, depression, and even suicidal thoughts. These are a few reasons people struggling with a marijuana addiction would want to seek help at a THC Addiction Treatment Center.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the active ingredient in marijuana that gives its user a high (increased senses, relaxation, mood changes etc). THC has addictive characteristics and many who use marijuana develop an addiction that can be difficult to overcome. Fortunately, there are methods of helping users safely go through THC detox that successfully prepares them for recovery with drug and alcohol addiction detox in Florida.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, THC levels have increased in marijuana over the past few decades making it easier to become addicted. Like many addictive substances, THC comes with withdrawal symptoms when the user stops using. Insomnia and depression are the top two most common symptoms. Other symptoms can include:
- Sleep problems
- Dehydration and fever
- Stomach pains
At the THC Addiction Treatment Center in Florida, we offer inpatient and outpatient detox programs to ease discomfort from withdrawals. We make sure they are healthy throughout their entire detox. A supervised detox program is the best option when it comes to getting clean. While many attempt to detox on their own, the American Addiction Centers states that relapse is the biggest risk for those who choose to try on their own. Withdrawal symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable. Without the right support system, it can be easy to give in to the urge to use again.
Therapy at a THC Addiction Treatment Center
Therapy is an important part of the addiction recovery process. It goes beyond the physical needs of the body and addresses the needs of the mind. Detox can cause patients to feel different since they are no longer using and therapy is a great way to help patients adjust to sobriety and learn skills that can prevent further use.
That is why the THC AddictionTreatment Center does not make you wait until you enter rehab and begins therapy as soon as the patient is able to focus and participate. Behavioral and cognitive therapies are used to help patients combat urges to use. Experiential therapies have also become more popular. This involves using activities such as crafts, art therapy programs, music, or yoga therapy programs to help create a relaxing environment and help patients to address the root of their addiction problem. This not only helps patients during their detox, but it also helps prepare them for further treatment after detox.
No patient is alone in this process. The goal is to create a comfortable environment in which the patient can successfully detox, and equip them with the tools they need to continue on their journey to recovery.
THC Addiction Treatment Center
The THC Addiction Treatment Center inpatient detox provides 24- hour monitoring by doctors and nurses. They will regularly check vitals and can even administer medication to ease withdrawal symptoms. The outpatient detox is recommended for those who have only mild withdrawals and stable support systems. However, it can also administer medication to ease withdrawals if needed.
