Though some people have not experienced physical withdrawals in the past, the high THC strains which more are consuming, or smoking have shown to now cause a bio-physical detox response. Much of the withdrawal for people are l psychological and can cause moderate to severe mental stress.
During detox at our drug rehab in Astoria, some people experience anxiety levels raising which our staff will directly monitor and provide assistance. Other issues include mood changes and irritability, an awareness of body pains. Some people in detox also have mild shaking and tremors if their anxiety is increased. This is treated by our caring and compassionate staff who will help each person transition into the next phase of detox at our residential drug rehab.
During the [preliminary period of detox, sometimes people go through having low motivation for changing behavior, however, this usually decreases in 48-72 hours. Whether it is physical or mental, cravings for using marijuana can continue much longer.
The withdrawal process in detox from marijuana is not the same severity as other substances such as heroin, prescription pills, alcohol, methamphetamine, or cocaine, though the underlying origin of the behavior can be very similar.
If you have become dependent upon marijuana or THC in edible form, and find that your life has changed because of it, Virtue Recovery Center in Astoria Oregon’s drug and alcohol treatment program is ready to help you.
