Marijuana Treatment

Marijuana, like most drugs, can be treated in a variety of ways.  Some users choose to enter a drug center or hospital as a way to combat their addiction.  Treatment centers directly targeting marijuana are rare however, since most users also have alcohol or other drug addictions. The length of programs treating marijuana addiction varies widely and marijuana withdrawal can cause restlessness, anorexia, irritability, and insomnia that begin less than 24 hours after the last use of the drug. The symptoms peak in intensity between days two and four, and last for seven to 10 days.

An important part of treatment for addiction to marijuana is recognition of what triggers the impulse to use the drug as well as the development individualized coping strategies. In addition to drug centers, some users find groups that offer positive support such as 12 step programs to be effective. There are currently no medications to treat marijuana addiction.
