Marijuana addiction treatment program
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, marijuana has become the most common illicit drug of abuse in the United States, with nearly 20 million Americans reporting that they had used the drug in the past 30 days. If you, or someone you love, have problem with marijuana, The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake offers advanced, individualized marijuana addiction treatment programs for adults aged 18 and older.

How we treat
Advanced marijuana addiction treatment
The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake offers hope to men and women who are struggling to overcome an addiction to cannabis. With a progressive, patient-centered vision of recovery, this treatment center utilizes therapeutic learning strategies and a motivational approach to give patients the tools and support that they need for success.
Patients work closely with the same member of the treatment team over the course of rehab, so they can develop a strong working relationship with a single therapist. Recreation therapy, dietary counseling, and fitness therapy support physical health and promote optimal wellness.
Tools and therapies
Effective marijuana rehab programs use multidisciplinary therapies to produce long-lasting abstinence from the drug. After a period of detox, in which intoxicating substances are removed from the body, the patient can benefit from the following therapies:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, a therapeutic strategy focusing on changing addiction fostering thoughts and behaviors
- Self-help groups and group therapy sessions with other patients
- Family or marriage counseling to restore relationships
- Medication management to reduce craving for drugs and minimize withdrawal symptoms
- Treatment for co-occurring mental illness (anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and other psychiatric conditions) and substance abuse, if warranted
- Nutritional counseling and dietary support
Marijuana addiction treatment is based on the premise that cannabis is just as habit-forming and as potentially dangerous as any other illicit drug. Drug detox and rehab can stop the cycle of addiction and help patients create healthy, drug-free lives.
