The decision to go to rehab for marijuana addiction is an individual, personal one not to be taken lightly. Addiction can have serious consequences for a person’s life, finances, work and social functioning. When a person’s life is such that it is no longer possible to achieve personal goals, attain happiness or function normally, it may be time to consider rehab.
Marijuana has grown in potency over the last two decades. In 1983, studies demonstrated the average potency of marijuana samples was less than four percent. The sample contained four percent THC – tetrahydrocannabinol which, by 2008, the average of THC increased to more than ten percent in some samples. Marijuana grown hydroponically in Canada and the US registered 25% or higher. Addiction has a new face with the potency increasing and legalization on the horizon. The road back to a life without addiction involves learning skills to overcome problems as a result of or occurring before use of marijuana.
