Effective treatment for marijuana addiction & abuse at The Cabin Bangkok
Following alcohol, marijuana is the most widely abused drug in the world. Marijuana, and the related drug, hashish, are categorised as hallucinogens due to the psychedelic effects they cause. Research indicates that between 5-9% of people who use marijuana become dependent on it.
There are raging debates over the dangers of marijuana and the legalisation of it, primarily due to some countries and states offering limited legalisation.
Most legalisation has been done not in response to a lack of danger, but to reduce the burden on the criminal justice systems. Medical marijuana use is on the increase in spite of proof that synthetic drugs, similar to THC but not mood altering, are as effective, if not more so, in treating the symptoms alleviated by marijuana.
A common debate is whether marijuana is a “gateway drug”– leading the user to experiment and become dependent on harder and more dangerous drugs. This debate is irrelevant to us, as we have seen many clients whose addiction was limited to marijuana and still found them severely addicted and unable to function successfully.
Effective Marijuana Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Bangkok
At The Cabin’s outpatient programme we work very successfully with treatment for marijuana addiction and abuse. Although psychologically addictive, marijuana has minimal physical withdrawal symptoms so a client can begin treatment without any delay. Our combined cognitive-behavioural and abstinence goal models of counselling allow the client to identify how their addiction developed, recognise recovery goals, learn new, adaptive coping skills and build a programme of recovery that, if followed, can ensure recovery from marijuana; as well as prevent substitution addiction to new or different substances.
