Many people throughout Canada use weed recreationally. It is often seen as a harmless drug.
However, persistent use can have serious negative effects, including addiction. There is a common misconception that weed is non-addictive. While it is not as addictive as other substances such as heroin or cocaine, it is absolutely possible to develop a dependence.
Although not considered as dangerous as other recreational drugs, marijuana dependency and abuse is a very real problem that can take just as heavy a toll on users and their families as other addictions.
Our drug rehab centres are a safe and effective way to get help coping with your addiction and concurrent mental health problems. At Trafalgar every client receives a personalized and effective addiction treatment program at our addiction treatment centres in Ontario.
Weed Addiction Development
Some people get easily addicted to marijuana after using the drug frequently, and they might need to smoke more of it to maintain the same level of reaction. People who are trying to quit using marijuana on their own without treatment may find themselves frequently in a bad mood, feeling intense bouts of anxiety and nervousness, dealing with persistent insomnia and feeling a strong need to take the drug, these are some of withdrawal symptoms.
Weed Addiction Effects and Symptoms
People use weed for a variety of reasons, from relaxation or social recreation to its medicinal effects. Once a person has come to depend on these effects to the extent that they cannot function normally without weed, they may require professional support to stop using. Weed addiction can have a range of debilitating effects on a person’s life. Sustained use can harm a person’s mental health and can damage their relationships and professional circumstances.
Abusing weed can result in problems with memory, comprehension and mood, and poor social behaviours. It can interfere with one’s personal and professional life and other activities. Research has shown that marijuana’s negative impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks at a time after the effects of the drug wear off. As a result, a user who smokes marijuana daily may be functioning at reduced intellectual levels much of the time.

Trafalgar offers the best treatment for weed addiction available in Ontario. We use evidence-based, client-centred methods that give clients the strongest possible foundation for recovery.

We treat the addiction along with the underlying mental health issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD and other psychiatric disorders.
Trafalgar East provides 45 or 90 day residential weed rehab and offers comprehensive addiction specific treatment.

This helps us to provide alcohol addiction treatment at highest standards.
Our outpatient addiction counselling centre located in Toronto treats clients who are unable to attend residential treatment. Our 4-week Intensive Outpatient Program allows clients to receive weed addiction treatment similar to what they would receive in our residential treatment facility, but allows them the opportunity to continue working and go home at night.
