The home should be the first line of defense in the fight against substance abuse. However, when it comes to\u00a0marijuana and education, the information is evolving. Trust that Lucida Treatment Center is current with the times. We understand that marijuana is becoming legalized in many sections and states. As a result, treatment has to change with the times. However, just because marijuana is becoming legalized does not mean that individuals cannot develop an unhealthy dependence or addiction to marijuana. According to the National Institute On Drug Abuse, marijuana users can develop Marijuana Use Disorder. What Is Marijuana Use Disorder? This disorder becomes an addiction in extremely severe cases. Some trains of thought maintain that marijuana is not addictive.\u00a0 However, addiction is defined as any behavior that is compulsive and has cravings of intense levels.\u00a0 Part of that definition includes that individual's inability to stop on their own. Marijuana, unfortunately, does fall into that category with individuals who actually need treatment to cease their use.\u00a0 Addiction is also categorized by the detrimental effects on your personal life. Individuals who cannot stop using marijuana despite the negative effects on their life are dependent and addicted to the substance. These individuals stated they would like to stop, but feel that they cannot stop on their own. That's where Lucida Treatment Center comes in. Learning About Marijuana is Key Despite what the media portrays, marijuana, and education about its uses are necessary. Marijuana has become more and more socially acceptable over the last few decades. Learning about the substance will give you insight into how it can be destructive to you physically and mentally. Marijuana has been researched in terms of its withdrawal symptoms. Chronic users of marijuana who decide to stop using experience a decrease in appetite, cravings, mood swings, and other mood difficulties, difficulty sleeping, and a feeling of being restless. These feelings last for approximately two weeks. This chemical dependence stems from the reduced production of endocannabinoid neurotransmitters. This is because the brain has minimized its production of these neurotransmitters. The discomfort in withdrawal occurs due to the body's readjustment to the natural neurotransmitter production. The NIDA documents statistics for 2015. According to the research, 4 million people had Marijuana Use Disorder. 138,000 people sought treatment for marijuana use. These statistics dispel the myth that marijuana is harmless and just something to help you relax. People need a firm education regarding marijuana.
