Effective Marijuana Addiction Treatment in Thailand
Over 150 million people use marijuana worldwide. The effects of marijuana use are often downplayed by Hollywood and entertainers whose movies and lyrics often portray marijuana as a fun, harmless drug.
Some countries have taken steps to legalise marijuana use. However, the effects of marijuana, including the risk of developing an addiction remain an important worldwide issue. The ever increasing volume of people seeking Marijuana addiction treatment is testament to the seriousness of the issue.
Benefits of receiving Residential Treatment
While there are many benefits to receiving inpatient marijuana addiction treatment, the top benefits are as follows:
- Secluded location.
Residential rehab removes addicts from their daily lives which often hold many triggers for substance abuse. Getting away from people and places that encourage marijuana use is beneficial for many addicts seeking treatment.
- Busy schedule.
A full day of counselling sessions combined with other types of therapy help keep cravings lower which is very important, especially in the beginning.
- Personal and group therapy counselling sessions.
Both one-on-one counselling and group sessions are integral to successful recovery from marijuana addiction. One-on-one counselling can address the addict’s personal issues behind addiction while group sessions allow the opportunity for all members present to learn from one another.
- 24-hour care.
No matter what time of day, there are counsellors and support workers available to help clients get through cravings or emotional difficulties that arise during treatment.
All treatment within the treatment centre is kept completely confidential at all times.

Is Marijuana Addiction Possible?
It is a common misconception that developing an addiction to marijuana is not possible and thus many people showing symptoms of marijuana addiction do not seek help. Marijuana is one of the most widely abused drugs globally, and thus marijuana addiction is more common than many people think.
When a joint after work to relax or smoked socially with friends at a party turns into something you need to get you through a regular day, you are looking at the first signs of marijuana addiction.
Long-term Effects of Marijuana Addiction
There are many short and long-term effects of marijuana abuse, but some of the most worrisome long-term effects are as follows:
- Increased hunger referred to as ‘the munchies’ can lead to weight gain over time
- Loss of interest in school, work or hobbies
- Slowed reactions and decreased problem solving abilities
- Poor coordination
- Rapid heartbeat
- Paranoia or distorted perceptions
What Types of Treatments for Marijuana are Available?
Marijuana can successfully be treated in both inpatient and outpatient rehab centres. Outpatient treatment centres typically work best for those who are high-functioning addicts. In other words, they can still manage a relatively normal day to day life despite their addiction. Outpatient rehab allows clients to maintain their work and family obligations while attending addiction counselling therapy a few times a week.
For those with a more severe addiction, inpatient addiction treatment is usually recommended.
