Marijuana Addiction Treatment

We Have the Solution

Marijuana Addiction Treatment

Elevate Life Wellness Centre is staffed by qualified clinicians and treatment professionals.
We have structured and intensive individual and group therapy sessions
Elevate Life Wellness Centre treats individuals with all types of substances misuse habits and out-of-control compulsive behaviors. Our clinical team work under the theory that the addictive behavior is a by-product of an underlying condition.
We believe that an intensive holistic and therapeutic process is required to enable individuals to see the world and themselves from a new, and more solution-based perspective. Problem solving, cognitive therapy, spiritualism, health and wellness, community and relationships-building are all essential building blocks to recreating one’s sense of purpose.

 

Marijuana Addiction


Rife with controversy and conflicting research, recovery from Marijuana addiction remains a complex issue. As Marijuana becomes gradually legalized and more socially acceptable, the discussion around the addictive nature of Marijuana is often overlooked.
Elevate Life and TWC take no moral position on the use of Marijuana, and seek only to help those people who self-report an out of control relationship with the substance. Many users report feelings of total dependence on the drug to function normally, and for many of them, this is a troubling aspect of their use. Cessation of the drug can cause feelings of intense anxiety and social withdrawal, and Elevate Life seeks to help clients acclimatize to a life where Marijuana is no longer needed to lend novelty, comfort or interest to everyday things.
While there are no detox concerns with Marijuana, some users report feelings of depression and anxiety that require emotional support, therapy and counselling to navigate.
Relapse rates are high as the acute consequences of Marijuana ingestion  are slower to develop. Rationalization for continued use can come easily for individuals living in a society where use of the drug is increasingly normalized.
Like alcohol, many people are able to use Marijuana without experiencing negative consequences, while others feel they have lost the ability to choose whether or not to use the drug. Elevate Life seeks to provide an environment where abstinence can be achieved with as little discomfort as possible.
