Marijuana addiction treatment in Melbourne
Marijuana Addiction Treatment in Melbourne – Why Victorian residents find effective and affordable treatment for marijuana addiction at The Cabin Melbourne
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in Australia and Australians have the highest prevalence rate for marijuana use in the world, with roughly one in three Australians reportedly having used marijuana. While popular acceptance of marijuana use has been increasing in society, regular use can have damaging effects on the lives of many users. Frequent, excessive, or long-term use can lead to a variety of deleterious effects such as:
- Decreased productivity
- Impaired thinking / memory
- Diminished ability to learn and perform complex tasks
- Reduced attention span
- Increased hunger / weight gain
- Lack of motivation – potentially leading to problems at work or school
- Damaged respiratory health
- Anxiety / paranoia
Many Australians believe that marijuana is not an addictive drug, especially since the recent legalisation of marijuana in Victoria for medicinal use. This belief, however, is far from the truth. Just like any other prescription drug, marijuana can be abused and lead to addiction, as many users continue to seek out and smoke marijuana even after it begins to have negative effects on their lives. Smoking a joint after work to unwind can seem harmless enough but this can easily escalate to needing marijuana to make it through each day – a tell-tale sign of addiction. If you find that you are using more and more marijuana, or if you find that your cravings have increased in frequency or intensity, or if your marijuana use has caused unwanted effects on your life, you are likely addicted to marijuana. As addiction is a progressive disease that increases in severity overtime, it is important to seek professional help for marijuana addiction as soon as possible. The Cabin Melbourne offers free initial assessments to recommend the best treatment option for your individual needs.
