Recover from Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Our Costa Mesa Marijuana Detox
Detox in Costa Mesa & Huntington Beach
Our marijuana detox center in Costa Mesa, CA is a warm, welcoming, and safe environment for you to break free from marijuana addiction and dependency.
Marijuana is quickly becoming legalized and has become more socially acceptable in recent years. Marijuana and its active ingredients are rather safe when compared to other substances of abuse, but it still holds dangers for addiction and dependency.
Unfortunately, with its medicinal properties that have been proven to help certain conditions, it has become one of the most abused substances across the United States in people who do not have such conditions. There is a common myth accepted among many marijuana users that it is not harmful and hence led to some people using absurd amounts of it.
The goal of detox at our marijuana treatment facility is to help clients get through the struggles of their initial days through sobriety. If you have been abusing marijuana, you know how hard it can be to put the pipe down and stay clean.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10% of marijuana users become addicted — and 17% of adolescent users become addicted. While smoking occasionally might not lead to withdrawal symptoms, daily users and heavy users may experience an array of symptoms.
Each one of these symptoms may have varying severities depending on how long the person has been using and how heavy they have been dosing. They are not typically dangerous as we see with other drugs, but they can still be extremely unpleasant and sometimes lead to intense depression.
The human body has endocannabinoid receptors that bind to chemicals in the marijuana plant — mainly delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining the equilibrium between the body and its autonomic functions.
When someone smokes weed with THC daily, they are dosing their body with cannabinoids that may mess with the body’s natural cycle of endocannabinoids and throw of bodily functions. And, prolonged daily use makes both your body and brain dependant on it.
Cannabinoids stay in the system for a relatively long period of time when compared to other drugs. THC builds up in fatty tissues much faster than your body can eliminate it. This is why heavy cannabis smokers can test positive for marijuana well over a month after last use.
When in the initial detoxification stage, there are a number of things that can help get you through the withdrawals and detox:
