Understanding Marijuana: Physically vs. Psychologically Addictive

Marijuana, often hailed for its recreational and medicinal properties, has a dual nature. While not physically addictive in the traditional sense, its psychological grip can be profound.

  • Physical Addiction: Typically characterized by withdrawal symptoms when the substance is not consumed. Marijuana doesn’t lead to severe physical withdrawal like alcohol or opioids. However, some users report mild symptoms like irritability and sleep disturbances.
  • Psychological Addiction: This is where marijuana’s true power lies. Regular users can develop a mental reliance, craving the relaxation, euphoria, or escape it provides. Over time, this can lead to increased consumption, impacting daily life and well-being.

The Escalating Concern: Marijuana and Synthetic Cannabis Addiction in New Jersey

Recent years have witnessed a surge in marijuana and synthetic cannabis use in areas like Lakewood, Toms River, and Monmouth County. With the rise in accessibility and changing societal views, more Central New Jersey residents grapple with addiction. Synthetic cannabis, often marketed as a “safe” alternative, has further exacerbated the issue, leading to unpredictable effects and heightened health risks.

Therapies Tailored for Marijuana Addiction at Overcome Wellness & Recovery

The Balance of Treatment and Daily Life

Living in a society where marijuana is increasingly normalized can be challenging for those in recovery. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) equips patients with the tools to navigate a world where marijuana is prevalent. Through group sessions, individual counseling, and educational workshops focusing on marijuana’s effects and triggers, patients learn to resist temptations and build a resilient mindset.

Addressing Marijuana and Mental Health Together

Many marijuana users turn to the substance to self-medicate underlying mental health issues. Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment not only addresses marijuana addiction but also the coexisting mental health disorders, ensuring a holistic healing process. By understanding the interconnected nature of marijuana use and mental health, we provide a more comprehensive path to recovery.

Intensive Care for Profound Recovery

For those with a more entrenched marijuana dependency, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers an intensive therapeutic environment. Patients delve deep into their relationship with marijuana, exploring patterns of use, triggers, and the psychological factors driving their dependency. With a structured approach, they’re guided toward breaking free from marijuana’s hold.

Unraveling the Link Between Trauma and Marijuana Use

It’s not uncommon for individuals to use marijuana as a coping mechanism for past traumas. Our Advanced Trauma Therapy addresses this head-on, helping patients confront and heal from traumatic experiences that may drive their marijuana use. Techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) are employed to break the cycle of trauma and dependency.

Beyond Abstinence: Cultivating a Marijuana-free Wellness Lifestyle

Recovery from marijuana addiction isn’t just about abstaining; it’s about building a fulfilling life without the crutch of the substance. Our holistic treatments, from yoga to meditation, are designed to fill the void often left by marijuana, promoting physical health, mental clarity, and a sense of purpose.

Seeking Spiritual Guidance in Marijuana Recovery

For many, faith offers a powerful anchor in their recovery from marijuana addiction. Our Faith-Based Programming integrates spiritual teachings into the treatment process, providing strength, hope, and resilience against the lure of marijuana.
