Managing Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana, while legal in some states, is addictive and highly abused. At Sprout Health Arizona, we understand that a lot of people believe there is nothing wrong with marijuana. In fact, most will argue that it is an all natural pain-reliever and anxiety remedy; however, studies show that there are effects that occur through long-time use.

Over 20 states have legalized the use of medical marijuana due to its potential medical benefits to ease the pain of AIDS, glaucoma and cancer.

Marijuana is used among adults mostly; however, there is a growing trend of adolescent and young adult use. Studies show that teens who start using will continue their use into adulthood and because of its social acceptance, most users will never seek treatment.

The Effects of Marijuana

Marijuana affects mental state, short-term memory, ocular pressure and reasoning. The most notable effects being:

  • Lethargy
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • A sense of alteration
  • Altered visuospatial reasoning
  • Effects on attention
  • A reduction of intraocular pressure
  • Dryness, which creates red eyes.

Marijuana causes an altered sense of time and space as well as variations in mood. Perceptions become unclear, problems with coordination occur and certain risk factors cause the possibility of depression and schizophrenia.

The prominent effect of marijuana is dry-mouth. It also causes an increase in heart rate and future lung obstruction. THC actually causes anxiety and smoke increases the risk of developing chronic obstructive lung disease.

How Sprout Health Arizona Treats Marijuana Addiction

Sprout Health Arizona understands that because of its social acceptance, we must first help our patients understand why and how they are addicted. It is widely perceived that marijuana use leads to the use of other illicit drugs; therefore, if our patients understand addiction, they should be able to resist the temptation to abuse other drugs.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches our patients to recognize their problems and ways to solve them.

We also offer family and group therapies. Family involvement gives us the insight into your health history and family life, as well as provides your family with the knowledge on how to support their loved through the difficult process of recovery.

Sprout Health Arizona understands that treatment and recovery are not easy and we assure you that we will be with you every step of the way. We provide a safe, tranquil and supportive environment.
