Help for Your Marijuana Cravings

Overcoming your addiction to marijuana can be difficult because of the frequent cravings you have. 

At Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment, addiction specialist Richard E. Repass, MD, offers customized treatment plans that not only help you break free from your cannabis addiction but also help you relieve cravings for marijuana within a few days.

Why you’re craving marijuana

Marijuana is a byproduct of the cannabis plant. This plant contains the active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a psychoactive drug that works on your brain’s neurotransmitters.

THC blocks these neurotransmitters, altering your brain function and triggering feelings of happiness, relaxation, and mild hallucinations.

This process reprograms your brain, so you only feel “normal” when using the drug. This leads to a dependence on marijuana use and withdrawal symptoms and cravings when you try to quit.

Realizing an addiction

Withdrawal symptoms are the initial warning sign you have an addiction to marijuana. If you try to stop using the drug and find that you become restless and irritable, you should consider the treatment options we offer at Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment.

Many people give up trying to quit marijuana on their own because of the severity of their withdrawal symptoms. 

Dr. Repass understands how these symptoms can affect your quality of life and your commitment to quitting. He can work with you to slowly taper your marijuana use and also offer safe and effective detox programs to minimize the side effects of withdrawal.

Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment offers marijuana detox programs on an outpatient basis, so you can continue working and taking care of your responsibilities.

Kicking the cravings for good

Because your brain is dependent on marijuana use to feel good, cravings for the drug can cause relapse. To help you fight off these cravings quickly, Dr. Repass offers a special infusion treatment of BR+NAD™.

BR+NAD infusion therapy

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a natural substance already found in your body that supports the process of converting food to energy. It also stimulates the production of neurotransmitters in your brain and plays a role in the repair of your DNA.

Many infusion plans involve 10-15 daily infusions of BR+NAD to stop your cravings for marijuana during your treatment for addiction. This megadose of BR+NAD during infusion therapy helps you take back control of your moods and your mind while restoring the natural function of your brain.

Additionally, infusion therapy can conquer your cravings for as long as a year or two, helping you finally break free of your marijuana addiction and reducing your risk for relapse.

Long-term recovery options

Dr. Repass also focuses on your long-term recovery. He can help you avoid cravings and relapse through ongoing therapy programs and other holistic practices that support your physical and mental health.

When you realize you’re not able to overcome the hold marijuana has over you, you can rely on the comprehensive, compassionate care Dr. Repass offers at Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment.
