Cannabis commonly referred to as marijuana, pot or weed, historically has been considered not harmful. However, because of its harmful effects on the brain, this mainstream drug can be devastating. After completing a comprehensive clinical evaluation, our Beacon House professionals will create a program to meet the specific needs of the cannabis addict. Our Marijuana Addiction Treatment Center is the best place to overcome cannabis abuse in Northern California.
Cannabis addiction often links to co-occurring mood disorders including anxiety and depression. Therefore, as part of the Beacon House commitment, our team of professionals will help to identify and treat these underlying issues.
Cannabis Addiction Facts and Statistics
In fact, cannabis abuse is a very real epidemic that has the potential to cause a host of problems in the addict. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates that approximately nine percent of people who use marijuana will become abusers. Moreover, upwards of 20 percent of users—some 4.5 million people—will develop some level of dependence.
Currently, cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in America, with 7.3 percent of Americans 12 years of age or older using the drug in the past month. The average age of first use for many individuals is less than 18 years old. However, despite these statistics, only some 350,000 people annually admit to substance abuse centers for the treatment of marijuana addiction.
