Start new habits

In recent years, the acceptance of marijuana in society has increased considerably, with many states legalizing recreational use of the drug. Despite this advancement, there is a growing concern among health professionals about its potential to cause addiction. While not everyone who uses marijuana will become addicted, it can have powerful effects on individuals who do develop an addiction. Understanding the causes and symptoms of marijuana addiction, as well as the treatment options and prevention strategies, can help those affected by it to seek help.

Marijuana can be highly addictive. It comes in three main forms-herbal, hash, and hash oil. Recent studies show that around 30% of people who use marijuana, have some degree of marijuana use disorder. Extreme marijuana abuse can cause headaches, drowsiness, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. Long-term use of the substance has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular conditions and mental disorders, including depression. If used regularly, marijuana can worsen respiratory conditions.

Life-Rock is committed to helping individuals struggling with marijuana addiction rebuild their lives. Marijuana addiction is a complex issue that can be caused by a variety of factors. It has been found to have a genetic component, meaning those who have family members with an addiction to cannabis are more likely to become addicted themselves. Additionally, environmental influences such as peer pressure, trauma, and stress can all contribute to the development of an addiction. Understanding the causes of addiction is an important part of helping those affected by it.


We Can Help You Turn a New Leaf


Surrounding oneself with a drug-free environment is an important part of recovery from marijuana addiction. This includes avoiding people, places, and activities that may trigger use or withdrawal symptoms. It also means developing new coping skills to replace drug use as a way to handle stress or difficult emotions. Finally, having the support of family and friends can provide a reassuring presence when faced with challenging times in recovery. Taking all these steps can help set up an individual for a successful journey towards sobriety.

At Life Rock we host Transitional living homes which provide a safe environment for recovering addicts to practice sobriety, learn to cope with cravings, and build relationships with other residents who are also on the path to a better life. Our homes span throughout Sonoma County in the cities of Santa Rosa, Petaluma, and Windsor. After completing a marijuana addiction recovery program, many people return to their homes. This could prove to be a grave mistake, especially if the environment at their home is full of temptations.

Our homes provide a sober living environment conducive to recovery and have helped many former addicts live a healthy life after recovery.
