Cannabis Use Disorder—Treatment and Therapy in Marietta, GA

Many people have found themselves using weed more often than they ever intended to use it and are having trouble quitting. Can you relate? If you are trying to quit, but are finding it more difficult than you anticipated, therapy may be a good option.

Thriveworks Marietta offers treatment for cannabis use disorder that has helped many people through the detox process and equipped them for life without weed. Reach out today to get started.

Cannabis—Weed—Pot

Cannabis is a plant that contains Delta-9-TetraHydrocannabinol (THC), a compound that affects people’s minds. In large doses, it also causes hallucinations. When in the blood stream, THC causes the brain-body connection to slow.

Many people use weed in legal and safe ways. But many people also struggle with addiction. Similar to alcohol, not all cannabis use is harmful or even addictive. DSM-5 defines Cannabis use disorder (CUD) as using weed regularly for at least one year and experiencing impaired functioning and increased disruptions in life that is manifested through at least two of these symptoms:

  • Ineffective attempts to stop or curb use.
  • Increasing the frequency of weed use.
  • Dedicating substantial time to pot use—obtaining it, ingesting it, and recovering from its use.
  • Craving cannabis, including having intense dreams, vivid images, strong smells, and/or obsessive thoughts about it.
  • Experiencing harm from weed use but continuing to partake. The harm may be personally, professionally, or relationally.
  • Allowing one’s job, hygiene, school, family, or friends to suffer because of pot use.
  • Mixing risky behavior and pot use such as driving a car while high.
  • Ingesting more cannabis to feel similar psychoactive or hallucinogenic effects.
  • Feeling withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit marijuana.

Risk Factors for Cannabis Use Disorder

According to DSM-5, these factors may increase a person’s risk of CUD:

  • Chemical dependency within the family.
  • Low socio-economic status.
  • A Conduct Disorder or Antisocial Personality Disorder.
  • History of tobacco use.
  • Background of abuse.
  • Unstable family circumstances.
  • Low school performance.
  • Family members who use cannabis.
  • Easy to access to weed.
  • Living in a culture that is more drug tolerant.

Treatment for CUD

Treatment for CUD is often effective with the right support systems in place, but sometimes the greatest obstacle to overcome is taking the first step to acknowledge the problem. False information, a tolerant culture, and self-deception about its effects can blind people to the harm cannabis may be causing in their lives. If you could relate to the list of symptoms for CUD, then it may be time to seek out help.

Professional treatment that involves cognitive behavior therapy has helped many people overcome the challenges of treating CUD. Cognitive behavior therapy seeks to treat the root causes of CUD, challenging false or negative belief structures and replacing them with true and positive ones. Therapy may come in the form of individual counseling or support groups. A therapist familiar with treating CUD can help people determine the treatment that may benefit them the most.
