Individualized Treatment Planning for Marijuana Addiction Recovery

Individualized Treatment Planning for Marijuana Addiction Recovery

A personalized treatment plan can be critical to successfully recovering from marijuana addiction. Generalized treatment programs are often not the most beneficial approach to long-term sobriety. Individualized treatment planning consists of an extensive background check into the full history of the substance abuse. This approach can help to uncover any co-occurring conditions or other addictions that may be promoting the marijuana addiction. Marijuana addiction often co-occurs with mental health disorders, such as depression, eating disorders and bipolar disorder. Addressing these underlying conditions is essential to addiction recovery. Some of the benefits of individualized treatment planning at a professional facility include the following:

  • Personalized assessment before admission – An assessment is conducted to discover the addict’s drug abuse symptoms, relational issues with family or friends and issues at work or school that may be contributing to the marijuana addiction. This assessment can include medical history, psychiatric history and any past treatment progress or failures. Discovering these things before admission can help an addict to feel understood and allow the staff to provide personal treatment.
  • Comprehensive treatment team – Individualized treatment planning is conducted by a team of professional staff that offer a wide array of marijuana addiction recovery knowledge.
  • Setting goals – The addict meets with his or her treatment team to choose and set goals for recovery. This can allow the addict to take ownership of his or her treatment plan.
  • Planning for recovery – The addict meets with the treatment team often throughout the treatment process to ensure that recovery goals are being met and to address any concerns that may arise.

Individualized treatment planning can allow an addict to feel in control of his or her treatment process. Learning how to experience emotions without the need for marijuana and developing the necessary tools to overcome dependency is critical to recovery. Individualized treatment offers the following that can help with experiencing emotions in a healthy way and developing tools for recovery:

  • One-on-one therapy
  • Expressive therapy
  • Healthy dieting
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • 12-step programs
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Trauma awareness and recovery programs
  • Educational services

Taking an in-depth and personal approach to marijuana addiction treatment provides higher success rates for long-term recovery. Individualized treatment planning offers avenues of support after treatment has been completed to ensure long-term sobriety. Because marijuana can be easy to obtain and the potential for relapse is high, extensive planning beyond treatment is essential to recovery.
