Marijuana Detox in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

In spite of what initiatives to legalize and popular culture wants you to think, it is a verified and conclusive indisputable fact that marijuana can be an addictive substance that may lead to both short and long-term physical and mental harm to users. Much like other drugs, someone who has used marijuana for a prolonged time period can become addicted to its effects and can experience withdrawal symptoms should they initially stop using marijuana. Users today have very high grade marijuana available which wasn't the case 10-20 years ago, which makes it an even larger problem.

Someone that uses marijuana on a regular basis is significantly changing how the brain functions, so the brain can't just automatically readjust to normal operation once the person ceases using marijuana, this will take time. Individuals actually detox from marijuana, like any other drug, as marijuana is eliminated from the body and the body readjusts to normal operation without marijuana. So marijuana detox is usually a challenge for habitual users, because users will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be tough to endure. These symptoms may not be as physical as it is with heroin withdrawal for example, but marijuana detox and withdrawal can cause severe depression as well as other mental symptoms for chronic users. That is why relapse is really prevalent for individuals who attempt to cease using marijuana on their own. Marijuana detox services are available at alcohol and drug detoxification and drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in Pittsburgh to help individuals through this course of action so that they don't relapse and can obtain further rehabilitation services following detox.
