Rehab Information

Marijuana refers to the processed cannabis plant that is used as a psychoactive drug and in treatment for some medical issues. While many psychoactive drugs are stimulants, depressants, or hallucinogens, it exhibits a mix of all three properties, with hallucinogenic or psychedelic effects primary. Although THC is usually considered the primary psychoactive ingredient, there are some studies that suggest that  other chemicals in marijuana may play a significant role. While it is illegal (except for in the case of certain medicinal uses in specific states), the number of users and vast distribution network has made it the most popular illegal recreational drug in America.

Effects of Abuse

Marijuana causes psychoactive and physiological effects on an individual. Aside from the subjective change in perception, most notably that of a user’s mood, the most common short-term physical and neurological effects include increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure, and impairment of short-term memory. The long-term effects continue to be debated, but are thought to include negative effects on intellectual growth, memory impairment, mental disorders, and lung health. In some cases, it has been shown to cause anti-social behavior in individuals.

Withdrawal Doesn’t Have Be Uncomfortable

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through withdrawal and this keeps them using the drug. We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.
