Cannabis Addiction Treatment
Cannabis Addiction Help in Essex & London
There are several names for this drug yet no matter which name you use, they’re very much the same – an addictive and harmful drug. Cannabis is also known as:
What Is Cannabis Addiction?
There’s a rather common misconception surrounding cannabis, especially now many states in the US have legalised the drug as well as cities in Europe.
Despite this rather radical move, research has still shown that around 10% of regular cannabis users become addicted and suffer the consequences associated with regular use of this drug, leading to them needing help with cannabis addiction.
Sadly, unlike other drugs, users of cannabis can eventually build up a tolerance to the drug, leading them to need more and more, or stronger cannabis in order to achieve the same high.
While many may use this recreationally, they may not necessarily be addicted. When people begin altering their life, however, simply to incorporate cannabis use, then a cannabis addiction may be developing.
Signs & Symptoms of Cannabis Addiction
While users may sometimes feel ‘chilled-out’ and relaxed, enjoying the after-effects more commonly referred to as the munchies, there lays a dark and rather sinister side to cannabis addictions.
Cannabis can effect your mental health, with regular users more at risk of developing psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia. It can also increase the risk of a relapse in those already suffering with their mental health. Those using cannabis may also find it far more difficult to conceive and will also find themselves with a higher chance of being involved in a road traffic collision.
Signs and symptoms of a cannabis addiction include:
- Unexplained absences from work, school or social engagements
- Poor performance at work or school
- Loss of interest in usual activities
- Lying or a new level of secrecy
- Continued use of cannabis despite the negative impact it’s clearly having on themselves and those around them
- Use of cannabis despite it being clearly dangerous to do so, such as before driving or using heavy machinery
You may also notice:
- Bloodshot eyes
- Increased appetite
- Dry Mouth
- Poor coordination/balance
- Lack of attention to personal hygiene
