Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug (22.2 million past-month users) according to the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH).
Marijuana use is widespread among adolescents and young adults. Studies consistently show that marijuana use is on the rise, and medicinal and recreational marijuana is more available than ever.
Marijuana detox is for people who are looking to comfortably detox from marijuana. Someone might want to detox from marijuana for several reasons, like:
Is marijuana addictive?
In severe cases marijuana is addictive. Marijuana becomes addictive when the person cannot stop using the drug even though it interferes with their life.
In 2014, 4.176 million people in the U.S. abused or were dependent on marijuana; 138,000 voluntarily sought treatment for their marijuana use.

Residential drug rehab treatment for marijuana addiction gives the patient time to fully detoxify from the effects of marijuana. A therapy based approach that incorporates comfortable living and healthy food enables each patient to flush out drug residues left behind in fatty tissues of the body.
Recovery from addiction to marijuana requires the same steps as recovery from any other addiction. Relationships still need to be repaired, and the ability to think clearly and reach goals must be rehabilitated. Marijuana affects many areas of your life.
In 2009, more than 360,000 Americans who were using marijuana and could not stop without help went to rehab. About 45% were under 21 and the majority were 24 or younger. Twenty-five percent of these 360,000 people started using marijuana by the time they were twelve years old and another 32% had started by the time they were 14. It's likely that either marijuana or alcohol was the first drug they started abusing.
The mental effects of marijuana can become more severe if the drug is used on a daily basis or in the event of higher dosages. This fact becomes significant when the rising potency of marijuana is considered. Over the last two decades, the average THC content has increased from less than 4% to more than 10%. Some samples have THC contents of 25% or even higher. THC is the active ingredient in marijuana that gets you “high.”
