Perhaps because of how widespread cannabis use is across the UK, the dangers of this substance are often overlooked or minimised. Whilst some people may be able to use cannabis in moderation seemingly without implications, about one in ten people do become addicted to cannabis and the consequences are no less devastating that supposedly ‘harder’ substances.
“Cannabis is the ultimate ‘de-motivator’ and when addiction takes hold users often become isolated in the extreme.”
At Delamere we offer residential treatment for cannabis at our purpose- built facility in Cheshire. If you are concerned about your relationship with cannabis or if someone you care about is struggling, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our admissions team are happy to speak with you about what’s happening and how we can help you move forward.
Cannabis has become steadily more potent over the last few decades and as such high concentrations of THC can have dangerous consequences. If you are concerned about your own relationship with cannabis or perhaps you are worried about a friend or loved one, you may observe the following signs and symptoms:
Cannabis use symptoms (during intoxication)
When addicted to cannabis, users feel a compulsion to take cannabis despite the negative consequences the drug is causing in their life. Cannabis addiction often affect several areas of life including relationships, school / work, finances and mental health.
If you relate with these symptoms and are worried about your relationship with cannabis, Delamere can help. We provide specific cannabis detoxification programmes to help you stop initially and residential programmes to help you stay stopped in the long term.
If you have tried and failed to stop using cannabis, it is time to consider seeking professional help. Delamere is a private clinic that specialises in treating cannabis addiction on a residential basis. Our programmes work by allowing participants to press the pause button and focus without distraction on getting well. It is our belief that a problem with cannabis or any other substance for that matter always comes from somewhere. Successful treatment is about three core elements; stopping the cycle of addiction, helping the individual heal whatever pain is causing them to ‘act out’ and providing a set of tools to help maintain abstinence.
At Delamere we are proud that everything we do and everything we offer participants is hardwired to outcomes. By staying with us you can expect and immersive and intensive programme of activity which helps move your lifestyle permanently beyond addiction. Our cannabis programmes vary in length although most people will stay for several weeks. You can read more about our process here.
When someone has been using cannabis regularly in hazardous amounts, their body becomes accustomed to the drug. When they stop using the substance, their body can react which brings about withdrawal symptoms. Whilst these vary from person to person, most people we speak with have tried stopping on their own and report the following symptoms:
At Delamere we believe that the first step in tackling cannabis addiction is about stopping. We have a medical team on site 24 hours a day to help you adapt to not using; and look after your physical wellbeing throughout. If you have struggled to stop on your own and have experienced cannabis withdrawal symptoms, we can help.
At Delamere, our residential cannabis treatment programmes tend to last between four to six weeks. That said, some people choose to stay with us for longer or shorter periods, depending on what’s happening for them. If you are considering cannabis rehab, our admissions team offer a free confidential assessment during which we can look at what is likely to be most effective for you.
This is not uncommon and denial often features when cannabis has become a problem. If you’re a parent reading this page, we’re glad that you’re starting to take action and the next step is to send a clear signal to your loved one that you will help them if they are willing to make changes. Our intervention programmes offer structured support to help you do this. Please don’t hesitate to call – at Delamere we have vast experience in motivating and encouraging people in denial to accept help.
Upon leaving Delamere and returning to your everyday life we continue to support you and help you future proof your abstinence, normally for a period of 12 months post treatment. To find out more about our aftercare programmes please contact our admissions team.
