Starting Cannabis use disorder counseling

What is cannabis use disorder counseling?

Cannabis use disorder counseling from our Thriveworks therapists in Columbia can help people manage their urges to use cannabis. In addition, it can help people manage the challenges that stem from their cannabis use disorder, from relationship issues to problems at work, as well as those that their disorder may stem from, like trauma.

How does cannabis use disorder counseling work?

Cannabis use disorder counseling works by helping one understand the underlying causes of their disorder, teaching them coping strategies, and recognizing their specific triggers. Long-term or ongoing cannabis use disorder counseling can also help to prevent relapse.

Cannabis use disorder counseling at Thriveworks Columbia, SC is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

Therapy for Cannabis Use Disorder in Columbia, SC—Counseling and Treatment

If you are using pot in larger quantities or with more frequency than you ever intended, you are not alone. Many people have tried to quit or curb their use but find they cannot regulate it. Seeking help for cannabis use is a difficult decision, but counseling has helped many people regain control.

Thriveworks Columbia offers counseling for Cannabis Use Disorder, and our therapists have helped many clients learn the skills they need to detox from pot and regain control.

What Is Cannabis Use Disorder?

DSM-5 defines Cannabis Use Disorder (CUD) to clarify the line between recreational and dependent use. CUD occurs when people have used pot for a minimum of one year while experiencing impaired daily functioning with an increase of disruptions from use. These are assessed according to the following symptoms:

  • Unsuccessful attempts to stop or curb use.
  • Increased frequency of weed use.
  • Dedicating substantial time to using cannabis—obtaining it, ingesting it, and recovering from its use.
  • Continuing to partake despite relational, personal, or professional harm from use.
  • Craving cannabis: having vivid images, strong smells, intense dreams, and/or obsessive thoughts about it.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when attempting to curb or quit pot.
  • Mixing risky behavior and cannabis use such as driving a car while high.
  • Prioritizing weed over job, family, school, hygiene, or friends.
  • Using more cannabis to feel the same psychoactive or hallucinogenic effects.

Treating CUD

Counseling from a therapist who is familiar with CUD, its withdrawal symptoms, and strategies to overcome those symptoms may provide the guidance and support people need. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) may …

  • treat any underlying causes of the disorder
  • explore why a person first used or continues to use pot
  • help people replace any false beliefs with positive thought structures
  • resolve any negative experiences or difficult emotions in a healthy way
  • equip people with coping skills to live without cannabis use
