Despite the urban myth that marijuana is harmless and non-addictive, anyone who has smoked the drug for any length of time knows how difficult it is to quit. The withdrawal effects that occur when you stop smoking marijuana are testament to the addictive nature of the drug. It’s not just the mental addiction to the ritual or the emotional dependence on the escape that a marijuana high provides, but addiction to the drug is physical as well, your body’s dependence upon a certain amount of the active ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), in your blood stream at all times. It’s this physical dependence that creates a marijuana detox will all the withdrawal symptoms that implies should you stop using the drug.
At Orchid Recovery Center, we can help you navigate through the pitfalls of marijuana detox and smoothly transition into a treatment that is holistic and comprehensive in nature.
The Types of Marijuana Detox Available
There are a number of marijuana detox programs available, though few of them focus solely on marijuana addiction and its effects. Most who are addicted to marijuana usually combine it with other drugs like alcohol. Abuse and addiction to marijuana in the United States, however, is on the rise as are the number of people seeking out treatment for its effects specifically. This means that more and more facilities are investing time and effort in making sure that their therapeutic options are multi-faceted enough to engage those who are going through a marijuana detox, an experience much different than, for example, a cocaine detox or opiate detox.
At Orchid Recovery Center, we provide a number of therapeutic options that speak to the needs of women who are detoxing off of marijuana. Whether you choose an inpatient or outpatient program, the women who run Orchid Recovery Center have Masters-level educations and the experience necessary to provide a thorough and effective marijuana detox and treatment.

The variety of therapeutic options available at Orchid Recovery Center allow every addict who comes to reside with us the option to create a completely unique treatment program unlike any other. The focus of a marijuana detox begins with the physical nature of addiction and then turns to the emotional and spiritual needs of treatment, a journey you begin here at Orchid Recovery Center that will continue through the rest of your life.
How to Determine If You Need a Marijuana Detox
Marijuana has been in common usage in the United States for over 40 years. The statistics show that more than 5 million Americans smoke marijuana regularly and that the use of the drug among college-aged Americans is consistently on the rise. According to studies, those who make common use of marijuana also frequently abuse alcohol and experiment with a variety of other drugs as well. Those with co-occurring disorders including manic depression, post traumatic disorder, anxiety, stress and more also tend to indulge in marijuana in an attempt to “self-medicate.” At Orchid Recovery Center, our programs are designed to help women learn to deal with their psychological and addiction issues healthfully, without depending upon substances to alter their moods.
