Ocean Recovery Centre offers cannabis detox programmes across the United Kingdom. When you begin your cannabis detox, you will benefit from expert medical help.

You will be given a range of medications that help to extinguish any withdrawal symptoms. This will allow you to detoxify without experiencing cannabis cravings and a range of other highly discomforting cannabis withdrawal symptoms.

The term ‘detoxification’ is actually a medical expression to describe the process where toxins are removed from a client’s system under medically supervised conditions. The word ‘detox’ is incorrectly associated with dieting due to the number of pseudo-nutritionists who have borrowed the term over the last decade.

When you undergo a cannabis detox, you will benefit from round-the-clock support whilst you undergo a cannabis detox. A cannabis detox requires around 10-14 days to complete.

During this time, you will also benefit from a number of ‘talking’ and complementary therapies that aim to treat the mental causes of cannabis addiction. This means your cannabis addiction will be treated from a physical and psychological standpoint during the course of your treatment.

When you undergo a cannabis detox, you could possibly experience physical withdrawal symptoms. Experts have debated whether quitting cannabis brings about withdrawal symptoms or not. However, in 2013, the American Psychiatric Association came to a consensus that cannabis withdrawal should be added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

You will likely experience a range of psychological withdrawal symptoms, and when you undergo a cannabis detox at Ocean Recovery Centre, these withdrawal symptoms will be addressed and treated by our in-house clinical team.

Therapy sessions that run alongside your cannabis detox help you to fully rehabilitate. You will be taught to develop the skills necessary to ensure you do not relapse when you leave our care. In short, we prepare you for long-term cannabis recovery.

You will begin to believe you can live your life without cannabis, and you will begin to restructure your life around activities that do not involve cannabis use.

Attending A Rehab Centre For A Cannabis Detox

Many people who regularly consume cannabis believe they are not consuming a drug that is capable of causing significant damage to their lives. In fact, many cannabis users do not accept the notion that cannabis is an addictive substance.

This misconception flies in the face of research revealing around 10%-15% of cannabis users will go on to develop an addiction to this illicit substance.

When cannabis addiction arises, you should consider attending a cannabis rehab clinic. Here, you will be fully detoxed and rehabilitated. Attempting to stop consuming cannabis in the presence of an addiction is problematic for two reasons.

Firstly, when you consume cannabis over an extended period of time, your body will build up a tolerance to this substance. This makes it difficult to stop smoking cannabis without experiencing a range of withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms consist of a range of negative emotions and urge you will experience when you attempt to stop smoking cannabis. The severity of withdrawal symptoms experienced when you stop consuming cannabis generally depends on the degree of your addiction.

Long-term cannabis users should expect far more aggressive withdrawal symptoms when compared to somebody who has consumed cannabis for a relatively short period of time.

What is Cannabis Withdrawal?

Cannabis, which is also known as marijuana, is a psychoactive drug that alters how your brain operates. The danger with cannabis is that when your body becomes accustomed to the constant intake of cannabis, physical changes start to appear which start to affect how you operate daily.

Withdrawal is what happens when you stop using this drug and your body has to try and cope without those physical and psychological changes it is used to. The symptoms of withdrawal can vary from mild to serve. If you feel you have a problem with Cannabis addiction reach out to our team at Ocean Recovery.

Cannabis Withdrawal Symptoms

Like any withdrawal from any drug, there are a number of side effects that arise during the marijuana detox process. In the list below, we have listed some of the more common symptoms associated with a cannabis withdrawal:

  • Nausea
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings for cannabis
  • Migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares

The above withdrawal symptoms cause many people to relapse when attempting cannabis withdrawal without professional medical assistance. This is because continuing to consume cannabis will help to alleviate these symptoms.

The Long-Term Benefits Of Undergoing A Cannabis Detox

The general perception is that marijuana addiction isn’t really dangerous – but the truth is that it can have a serious effect on your mental health and can cause some long-term health issues.

When you complete a cannabis detox, you will benefit from going through this process for many years to come. Your career, your finances and your loving relationships will benefit when cannabis is eliminated from your life. You will begin to participate in healthier activities that enrich your life for the better.
