Marijuana Detox in Somerville, Massachusetts

Despite what initiatives to legalize and popular culture wants you to believe, it's a verified and conclusive indisputable fact that marijuana can be an addictive substance which can bring about both acute and long-term physical and mental injury to users. Similar to other substances, a person who has used marijuana for an extended time period can become addicted to its effects and definately will experience withdrawal symptoms if they initially stop using marijuana. Individuals today have extremely high grade marijuana available which wasn't the situation two decades ago, which makes it an even larger issue.

Someone who uses marijuana regularly is significantly changing the way the brain functions, hence the brain can't just automatically readjust to normal function when the individual stops using marijuana, this may take time. Individuals actually detox from marijuana, like any other drug, as marijuana is eliminated from the body and the body readjusts to function without marijuana. So marijuana detox can be quite a challenge for habitual users, because users will encounter withdrawal symptoms which can be difficult to endure. These symptoms might not be as physical as it is with heroin withdrawal for instance, but marijuana detox and withdrawal may cause severe depression and other psychological symptoms for chronic users. This is the reason relapse is really prevalent for those who make an attempt to quit using marijuana on their own. Marijuana detox solutions can be found at drug detoxification and alcohol and drug rehab programs in Somerville to help individuals through this process so that they don't relapse and can obtain further rehabilitation services following detoxification.
