The Role of California Marijuana Addiction Treatment Centers

California is known for its beautiful ocean views, beaches, warn sunny weather, Hollywood and much more. However, California is suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, which is damaging to individuals, families and communities.
California was the first US state to have successfully passed medical marijuana laws in 1996 where patients with legitimate and valid prescriptions for medical marijuana were allowed a maximum of 8 ounces of medical marijuana on their possession.

They were also allowed to grow not more than 12 immature plants or 6 mature marijuana plants. Unfortunately, without prescription, many Californians still face the same legal consequences as any other illicit drug use. Many still succumb to the different effects of marijuana overdose. So, what is the role of California marijuana addiction treatment centers?

Many of the state’s marijuana addiction treatment centers have to provide the same kind of treatment they would normally give to other kinds of illicit substance addiction. Because marijuana is closely related to the opioids, the role of marijuana addiction treatment centers is in the complete detoxification of these opioid substances from the body. This is very important if success in the marijuana addiction rehabilitation component is to be ever guaranteed. While detoxification itself is not necessarily a treatment but rather a way of cleansing the body in preparation for the actual treatment or therapy, many marijuana addiction treatment centers do recognize the need for thorough detox procedures. This is needed to ensure that no remnants of marijuana is ever left in the body, particularly the brain, where it can exert its many physiologic, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional effects. If marijuana is not completely removed from the body, then all succeeding therapies will all be for naught. It is therefore very important for marijuana addiction treatment centers to focus their attention in the complete elimination of the addicting substance.

Once detoxification has been completed, marijuana addiction treatment centers can commence with highly individualized treatment plans. This is crucial because now two marijuana addiction rehabilitees will exhibit the same exact responses to a particular therapy. Each rehabilitee will come with a unique set of clinical challenges which marijuana addiction treatment centers must be able to identify and adequately addressed through the use of innovative treatment approaches. Only through the use of such highly individualized and carefully planned therapeutic regimens will the whole marijuana addiction treatment and rehabilitation program ever be guaranteed success. It is therefore very important for marijuana addiction treatment centers to come up with a wide variety of addiction treatment options so that they will be able to find one that perfectly suits the condition of one patient to the next.

Now true marijuana addiction treatment centers do not stop with detoxification and treatment. They also need to make sure that the individual or the rehabilitee will have the necessary social support system he will need once he finishes his treatment program. As such, one of the more important roles of marijuana addiction treatment centers is in the creation and establishment of intersectoral linkages in the communities they are serving. This is necessary to make sure that help is available for drug center alumni when they are already in the real world.  

The role of marijuana addiction treatment centers is multifaceted. It is for this reason that they, too, require the cooperation of everyone particularly the families of marijuana addicts.
