Treatment for Marijuana Abuse

Regardless of the legal status of marijuana or alcohol for that matter, when a person abuses marijuana (also known as pot, weed, Mary Jane), it can have a long-term negative impact on their lives. When counseling a person for marijuana abuse, counselors help marijuana addicts recognize the choices he/she made and how they led to addiction. Patients will then identify thoughts or situations that trigger drug use, and will learn coping strategies that are more productive than abusing a drug. Numbing emotional pain with marijuana is often a sign of deeper psychological issues known as co-occurring disorders.
