Treating Your Cannabis Addiction with a Natural Detox Program

Treating Your Cannabis Addiction with a Natural Detox Program

Cannabis is becoming more acceptable as states legalize it across the United States. But like some other substances, cannabis can be addictive.

At Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment, Richard E. Repass, MD, offers comprehensive care to help you successfully overcome a cannabis addiction, including a natural detox program using infusions of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).

How cannabis addictions start

The cannabis plant produces marijuana, dried leaves that you can smoke or bake into brownies and other things. Smoking or consuming marijuana causes mind-altering effects on your brain that start quickly and can last for several hours.

Your risk for a marijuana addiction stems from the active ingredient in cannabis — tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is a psychoactive drug that blocks neurotransmitters, leading to changes in your brain.

After using the drug, you may feel less anxiety, increased feelings of happiness, and even mild hallucinations. But the reprogramming your brain goes through causes you to crave more THC to feel normal.

When you can’t stop using cannabis even if you want to, this is a warning sign of addiction. You may also become aware that your cannabis use is moving in the direction of an addiction if you develop withdrawal symptoms that make it difficult to quit.

Benefits of a natural detox program for cannabis

Many people struggle to overcome cannabis addiction because of the withdrawal symptoms. For some, the effects of withdrawal can be too much to manage on their own.

Dr. Repass offers solutions that help you taper your cannabis use gradually over time, so your brain can adjust more efficiently. We also offer medications that can reduce the severity of your side effects when you’re quitting marijuana.

If you prefer a more natural approach to detox, you may be a candidate for intravenous infusions of NAD, a substance naturally found in your body. NAD helps convert foods that you eat into the energy you need to function. It also repairs your DNA and increases the production of neurotransmitters in your brain. Infusions of NAD help restore your brain function.

What to expect from our cannabis addiction recovery program

The BR-NAD™ formula that Dr. Repass uses for infusions also effectively stops cravings for cannabis for months or years. As a result, you can work through the rest of your treatment program focused on your recovery and not your cravings.

We can coordinate your overall care for cannabis addiction. Your treatment not only includes BR+NAD infusions, but we also provide comprehensive general psychiatry services to support your long-term recovery.

Dr. Repass can address anxiety and depression, which are common with drug addiction and alcohol addiction, using a variety of holistic therapy strategies.

In addition to offering in-office sessions for your recovery, we have a telemedicine platform so you can meet with our team wherever you are. This ensures you have access to our treatment specialists no matter how busy your schedule is.

To schedule a consultation to discuss your options for treating cannabis addiction, call us today for a consultation. We’re located on Mercer Island, Washington, in the greater Seattle/Bellevue area.
