Many users of marijuana don’t see it as a problem. But marijuana use can quickly transform from a recreational pastime to a dependency that’s difficult to shake, especially among teens and young adults, but we are seeing it more frequently in older adults as well. Recognizing that your relationship with any substance, whether it’s alcohol or benzodiazepines or cannabis, has become detrimental to you living your best life is a brave and challenging first step to take. But if you’re ready to recognize that an addictive pattern has formed, and if you want to find help for marijuana withdrawal, our team of compassionate mental health professionals at True Life Center is here for you.
Coping With Withdrawal
Withdrawal can be an enormously difficult process to undertake. It’s not something anyone should have to do alone. The body, mind, and spirit can easily become interconnected to a substance that we turn to on a regular basis to help us through our days. When we suddenly remove that substance from our body’s daily intake regimen, it reacts. That reaction can throw off our mood, appetite, sleep, attention, and a myriad of other aspects of our vital functioning. If you’re a student trying to thrive in school or a professional pushing towards a promotion, sudden withdrawal can be a huge shock to the system and can throw off your trajectory.
Cannabis contains over 500 distinct compounds and 100 cannabinoids, which mimic a naturally occurring chemical in the human body and influence our homeostasis, metabolism, immunity, memory, stress, and more. Marijuana also acts as both a stimulant and depressant, which can affect everything from short-term memory and coordination to mood stability, sometimes even triggering paranoia. It’s no wonder that such a powerful substance comes with its own arduous journey of withdrawal. If you’re seeking a marijuana addiction treatment program, our team of experienced, dedicated healers can work together with you to address these symptoms and more.
