Marijuana Addiction Treatment in Vermont

Get Started Today

At Sana at Stowe, we recognize that marijuana addiction also known as Cannabis addiction,  is a real and valid struggle with many effects on individuals and their loved ones. Our team provides science-backed and holistic support for those with substance use disorders involving marijuana.

We treat individuals at OUR luxurious facility in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Treatment consists of safe detoxing, residential treatment, and ongoing support. Throughout the process, we provide a private and serene atmosphere to aid recovery.

Navigating Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana comes from the dried leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds of cannabis plants. The psychoactive drug provides mind-altering effects. The experience changes based on the individual, but marijuana often creates relaxation and euphoria. In high doses, it may cause hallucinations, delusions or psychosis.  The cannabis strains and forms they come in today, can be up to 30 times more potent than cannabis from 10-20 years ago.  While many don’t consider marijuana addictive, it can cause addiction in one in 10 people who use it as adults.

Addiction and long-term use of marijuana are related to health issues like:

  • Impaired cognitive abilities
  • Reduced coordination and movement
  • Mental health issues including depression, anxiety and psychosis

Marijuana can also cause social problems like relationship struggles, lower career achievement, and reduced life satisfaction. Stopping marijuana after long-term use results in uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, irritability, anger, disturbed sleep, and loss of appetite. The symptoms typically start within 48 hours after stopping use. It takes a maximum of three weeks to detox from marijuana.

Sana’s Treatments for Cannabis Addiction

The harmful physical, mental, and social effects of marijuana usage may lead those with substance use disorder — or their loved ones — to stop using this drug. The uncomfortable withdrawal process, combined with underlying issues that may have led to addiction, means recovery is often more successful with professional help.

Sana at Stowe provides various treatment services to assist those with cannabis use disorder on the path to recovery. These include:

  • Detox and withdrawal management: We provide monitoring and 24/7 access to medical care throughout the detox, typically lasting a few days to a week. During this time, we make the process as safe and comfortable as possible.
  • Residential treatment: After detox, we take patients into a rehabilitation process. Here, they learn the underlying causes of their addiction and gain coping strategies to avoid future relapse.
  • Evidence-based treatment: Our evidence-based treatment methods are backed by well-researched practices. These include medication-assisted treatment for the detox process and behavioral therapies during residential rehab.
  • Trauma-informed care: Sometimes, drug use arises due to trauma and mental health disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Therapeutic practices that treat this underlying trauma can assist in recovery.
  • Wellness and holistic services: We go beyond detoxification and talk therapies to introduce a well-rounded recovery with lasting effects. Our holistic treatments include acupuncture, gardening, yoga, sleep hygiene, and nutritional help.
