Who Benefits From Drug Rehab for Marijuana Addiction?

Individuals who meet the criteria for marijuana use disorder or who find that marijuana use negatively impacts their lives are likely to benefit from drug rehab for marijuana addiction. If you face marijuana addiction or know someone who does, you’re not alone. The estimated prevalence of marijuana use disorder varies, but it appears to be a very prevalent condition based on recent research. Studies indicate that anywhere from around 10-30% of people who use marijuana meet the criteria for marijuana use disorder.

How do you know if you have a problem? Understanding the signs and symptoms of marijuana addiction can help you identify marijuana use disorder in yourself or a loved one. Signs and symptoms of marijuana addiction can include but aren’t limited to the following. 

  • Continuing to use marijuana when it causes problems at work, school, in relationships, or in other important parts of life
  • Using marijuana in situations where it’s risky to do so (e.g., while driving or operating heavy machinery)
  • Needing to use increasing amounts of marijuana to achieve the desired effect
  • Giving up hobbies or important activities to use marijuana
  • Failure to stop using marijuana despite attempts to quit
  • Using marijuana in higher amounts than one intended 
  • Withdrawal from loved ones due to marijuana use
  • Cravings

Some people experience withdrawal symptoms during attempts to discontinue marijuana use, which may make it more difficult to quit. The most common symptoms of marijuana withdrawal include sleep problems, increased anxiety or nervousness, changes in mood, cravings, decreased appetite, and weight loss. Some also report tremors, irritability, GI distress, and headaches.

Other Effects of Marijuana Addiction

In addition to the signs and symptoms listed above, there are some other relevant effects of marijuana addiction to take note of. First, individuals who misuse marijuana may experience memory problems or negative mental health effects such as paranoia or an uptick in anxiety. Second, many people experience financial repercussions as a result of excessive marijuana use. People with marijuana addiction may continue to use despite these effects. It’s also worthwhile to state that research has not yet confirmed all of the potential negative effects of persistent marijuana use, so some consequences may be unknown at this time.

Some people with marijuana use disorder also misuse other drugs, though not always. Those who misuse other drugs alongside marijuana are at a higher risk of more serious adverse events.

Potential Causes of Marijuana Addiction

While there’s no known singular cause of marijuana use disorder, some factors increase the risk of marijuana addiction. Possible risk factors for marijuana addiction include the following. 

  • Starting to use marijuana at a young age
  • Being around other people who use marijuana frequently 
  • Personal history of other mental health conditions, such as anxiety or depression
  • Consuming high amounts of THC
  • Socioeconomic status 
  • Peer pressure 
  • Genetics

Regardless of the cause, finding an effective marijuana substance abuse program can help you overcome marijuana addiction.

Effective Marijuana Substance Abuse Programs

Various levels of care for substance use disorders can help you overcome marijuana addiction. The best marijuana addiction treatment center will help clients address underlying mental health concerns (such as anxiety and depression), build a set of coping skills, find recovery motivation, and create a relapse prevention plan. That way, clients will have the tools they need to succeed post-treatment. 

Here are some of the most common kinds of substance abuse programs you will encounter at a marijuana addiction treatment center.

Residential inpatient

Residential inpatient for marijuana use disorder requires that a client lives at the marijuana addiction treatment center they attend for the duration of care. When someone attends addiction treatment in a residential inpatient program, they live at the treatment facility for the duration of care. Since inpatient treatment provides a safe environment 24/7 and temporarily removes clients from their daily life, it is a great place to build new, healthy patterns and focus on recovery. Residential inpatient usually involves a number of different therapies, recreation activities, and other supportive practices. Your care team will typically involve therapists, a psychiatrist, and other staff. 


Outpatient treatment involves many of the same treatment practices as inpatient treatment (e.g., therapy and groups) but allows an individual to live outside of their treatment facility. It also requires a smaller time commitment of around twenty hours or less per week. Some people start out in an outpatient program at a marijuana addiction treatment center, whereas others start with inpatient services and move to an outpatient program once they're ready to transition back into daily life. Your care team will be similar to what one would have in inpatient settings.

Partial Hospitalization

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is like other outpatient programs but more intensive, requiring a larger time commitment of around twenty hours per week or more. PHP is often ideal for someone who needs more support than an outpatient program can provide but does not require or cannot attend residential inpatient care. Again, your care team will involve many of the same professionals you'd see in inpatient care. 

Dual diagnosis

The term "dual diagnosis" is used when someone has a substance use disorder and one or more additional mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety, or PTSD). Dual diagnosis treatment addresses substance use disorders and other mental health needs. Dual diagnosis care can be a game-changer, especially as some individuals use marijuana and other drugs to self-medicate. Dual diagnosis treatment can be applied in inpatient, outpatient, or PHP settings.
