Starting Cannabis use disorder counseling

What is cannabis use disorder counseling?

Cannabis use disorder counseling from our Thriveworks therapists in Pflugerville 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.

Is cannabis use disorder counseling conducted in person or online?

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

How long does cannabis use disorder counseling last?

The length of cannabis use disorder counseling in Pflugerville depends on the individual’s needs, the extent and severity of their disorder, and the problems that might stem from it. That said, people can make meaningful progress in cannabis use disorder counseling in the first weeks to months.

Understanding Cannabis Use Disorder (CUD) and Its Symptoms

Recognizing when cannabis use has crossed into misuse can be challenging. According to the DSM-5, Cannabis Use Disorder occurs when cannabis use leads to hindered daily functioning and increased agitation over at least one year. Symptoms include:

  • Prioritizing cannabis over responsibilities like school, job, hygiene, family, and friends.
  • Increasing frequency of use.
  • Spending substantial time obtaining, using, and recovering from cannabis.
  • Continued use despite negative impacts on oneself, friends, family, or work.
  • Craving cannabis, including experiencing dreams, images, smells, and obsessive thoughts.
  • Using cannabis in risky situations, such as driving while high.
  • Unsuccessful attempts to quit or reduce use.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop.
  • Using more cannabis to achieve the same effect.

A diagnosis of CUD requires at least two symptoms, with varying severity levels:

  • Mild CUD: 2-3 symptoms
  • Moderate CUD: 4-5 symptoms
  • Severe CUD: 6 or more symptoms

CUD is linked with long-term health issues, particularly cardiovascular and respiratory problems. It can increase blood pressure and heart rate, posing risks for those with heart conditions. Smoking cannabis is associated with respiratory issues like bronchitis, rhinovirus, chronic inflammation, influenza, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Benefits of Treating CUD

Detoxing from cannabis can lead to withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, digestive issues, and tremors. Overcoming CUD involves changing daily habits and learning healthier coping skills.

The effort is worthwhile, with benefits including:

  • Restored enjoyment of interests and hobbies
  • Better sleep
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Healthier relationships
  • Increased savings
  • Higher energy levels
  • More stable mood

I have used many different counselors in different cities/states and I have had a phenomenal experience with Deissy Rosenbaum. She has helped with a broad range of issues from cultural assimilation to ADHD to reprocessing childhood trauma through a unique method of EMDR therapy. Because I had her support, I not only made it through a tough year (2020) but am thriving and have made progress in so many areas of my life.

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Words cannot express how awesome Grichell is!! I’ve seen a few therapists in my life, and by far she has been the only one to quickly figure out a way to explain things to me that make sense. There’s never any judgement, only direct advice and counsel that has helped me so much. I actually enjoy and look forward to my time with her! If you are told she has no openings, just know, she is well worth the wait in line.

I had the pleasure of using Alison Riley for my councilor. She's absolutely wonderful! She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn't the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest, and she was even willing to have some of people I needed to talk to there so it was a neutral environment. I truly appreciate all the support she's provided. I feel like I'm much calmer now and much less anxious. Thank you so much, Alison!

I've had the privilege of working with Veronica and I'm truly grateful for her. It was the first time I felt accepted for who I am and comfortable to speak my truth. She has a very warm and accepting spirit that makes you feel at ease. The atmosphere is inviting and calm that's filled with a sense of peace. I will always recommend Veronica at Thrive Works and thankful for this experience!
