Marijuana Addiction Treatment
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the U.S. The most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that approximately 4.2 million people aged 12 or older suffered from marijuana addiction in the past year.
Despite the legalization of marijuana in some states, it is still considered a Schedule I controlled substance under the Drug Enforcement Administration. Schedule I drugs are deemed by federal law to have no currently accepted medical use and to be the most dangerous of all the drug schedules with high potential for abuse and severe physical and psychological dependence.
Many people require residential addiction treatment to stop abusing marijuana and maintain sobriety.
