While many places now allow recreational marijuana use, there are still legitimate concerns about people misusing the drug and becoming addicted.
If you’re using excessive amounts of marijuana and can’t stop on your own, you can find help at Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment. Our founder, Richard E. Repass, MD, offers a natural detox program that helps you overcome a cannabis addiction in about two weeks.
Dr. Repass can help you achieve recovery using a special BR+NAD™ formula, so you can avoid the worst of withdrawal side effects.
Understanding cannabis addiction
Marijuana comes from the cannabis plant, which can be dried and smoked or added to baked goods and other products.
The plant contains the active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which affects the neurotransmitters in your brain. When you smoke or consume THC, you may experience increased feelings of happiness, mild hallucinations, and increased hunger.
THC works by blocking neurotransmitters in your brain. Using a lot of marijuana can reprogram your brain and force you to need more and more of the drug to feel normal, a condition called marijuana use disorder.
You may develop an addiction to cannabis if you continue to use the drug, even if you don’t want to. If you try to stop on your own, it’s likely you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms that force you to use again.
Getting help for cannabis addiction
If you want to stop using marijuana but can’t deal with the side effects of withdrawal, you may find it hard to quit on your own.
To help you achieve recovery from your addiction, we offer a natural detox program that helps your brain slowly adjust to less marijuana use.
Dr. Repass can use infusions of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) as part of your recovery plan to fight off cravings for marijuana and reduce your risk for uncomfortable side effects.
NAD is already found in your body, where it helps convert food into energy. It also supports repair efforts of damaged DNA and triggers an increase in your body’s production of neurotransmitters.
What to expect during NAD infusions
During your detox, Dr. Repass can provide a megadose of specially formulated BR+NAD into your bloodstream through an intravenous line. The treatment can quickly relieve your cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms.
You can expect to have a series of infusions to achieve your desired results. Many of our patients need 10-15 daily infusions of BR+NAD to overcome a cannabis addiction. After you complete your treatment, your results can last one to two years.
Dr. Repass can help you detox from a cannabis addiction safely and without inpatient care. He offers infusion therapy in a comfortable office environment.
You may also benefit from psychiatric services like psychotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy to support your recovery efforts. We provide high-quality therapy in a safe, judgment-free space, so you can learn the coping skills you need to stay sober and successful in your recovery.
