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.
Weed rehab at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres is 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 treatment program at our multiple drug rehab centres in Toronto and 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.
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.
