If cannabis is smoked or abused for a long period of time, it can have detrimental effects on a user’s health, from which it can sometimes prove difficult to recover. There is a myth that cannabis is less addictive or strong than other drugs. This simply isn’t true. Get in touch with us today at Asana Lodge if you or someone you love is struggling with a cannabis addiction and is thinking of a detox programme to help them back on their feet to sobriety.
Do I Need A Cannabis Detox?
Get in touch with us today at Asana Lodge if you or a loved one is exhibiting the following symptoms that indicate cannabis addiction. It is at this stage that you should investigate detox options:
- Lost libido
- Lack of interest in eating
- Secrecy regarding cannabis use
- Insomnia and or/troubling dreams
When you smoke cannabis, your dopamine levels rise because the body produces more of this hormone. This is why an extreme ‘high’ and state of happiness is achieved. However, continued abuse of cannabis can result in a dependence forming over time, as more cannabis needs to be ingested to achieve the desired feelings of pleasure.
As a result, a user can slip into feelings of depression as they rely on cannabis to feel upbeat or happy. By undertaking a detox programme at our deluxee facility at Asana Lodge, we can help you break free from cannabis abuse for good and live a clean, sober life.
Cannabis Detox at Asana Lodge
To prevent relapse and to ensure client safety, it is always best to detox from an illicit substance when you are in a controlled rehab environment under medical supervision. Detox programmes in such environments are far more successful than those followed at home.
At Asana Lodge we have a relaxing, luxurious facility with many kinds of detox programme for various types of addictions. We take a holistic approach to our recovery programmes, ensuring that both the client’s mind and body are healed through one-to-one counselling, group therapy sessions, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness exercises such as yoga and meditation. Get in touch with us today to see how our bespoke detox programmes can help you get back on track with life.
When you initially make contact with us at Asana Lodge, we will discuss how your cannabis abuse has affected your life and relationships. We have a team of experts who specialise in eating disorders and mental health issues, so if you have been experiencing these alongside your addiction, share the details with us and we can suggest therapies to treat these, too. You will be given a bespoke treatment plan to suit your needs and we will talk through any queries you may have.
How Long Will It Take to Detox from Cannabis?
Although it is considered a ‘softer’ drug in comparison to crack cocaine or heroin, cannabis can still produce some debilitating side effects in a user when they detox from it. In heavy cannabis users, chemical changes take place in the brain, meaning that the brain relies heavily on cannabis in order to function at a normal level. During a cannabis detox you will experience symptoms of withdrawal.
Mental side effects include:
- Lack of interest/motivation
- Trouble with memory
- Difficulty concentrating
- Lack of clarity and articulation
Physical side effects of cannabis withdrawal include:
- Sweating and clammy hands/palms
- Feeling extremes of hot or cold
- Stomach/digestive issues
We understand the challenges that clients face when undertaking a detox programme. We want to make the experience as comfortable as possible for our clients. This is why our detox therapies are part of a bespoke and unique rehab experience involving 1-2-1 counselling, group therapy, art therapy, mindfulness sessions, fitness therapy sessions and more.
Our staff are highly experienced in healing the body and mind from addiction, and can administer medications such as anti-depressants and sleeping aids to make the withdrawal process more comfortable. We will also ensure that you are eating a nutritious, balanced diet and sleeping well to assist your body in recovery.
