    Drug Rehab Advice

     

    If you feel yourself or a loved one are in need of professional medical based rehab for either marijuana use or any other drug dependence or co-occurring mental disorder then please feel free to consult our rehab center referral directory. Our directory listings cover every state in North America and include information such as the type of treatment offered, official accreditation and any specialization each individual rehab service provider may offer as many specialize in their own unique fields and in providing their own custom services. Every provider can vary significantly so make sure you research any perspective recovery center thoroughly and that they meet your own unique individual needs.

    Choosing the right provider can very often mean the difference between success or failure as an adolescent teen can have such extremely different needs to a mature individual or a person suffering from a co morbid mental health related issue and therefore can be in need of a completely different type of therapy and treatment program.

    You wouldn’t want your brain operated on by a heart surgeon or vice versa and the same is as true for drug addiction treatment, just as with any other type of medical treatment one size definitely does not fit all. Always research as thoroughly as you can beforehand what kind of treatment provider is going to meet your needs, make sure you do your background research both online and off and call and question a number of different providers.

    Good providers will be happy to talk to you in depth about the exact nature of the treatment plan they offer and answer any questions you may have. While time is always a factor when it comes to saving yourself or a loved one from addiction, never rush into going with a drug rehab provider that you lack faith in or don’t feel comfortable with, we hope you find our referral directory a useful place to start.

     

    For further assistance with finding a reputable and accredited Rehab Service Provider in the USA you can also call the US Government’s FREE SAMHSA’s National Helpline on 1-800-662-HELP (4357)

     

    Good luck with your search,

    whats better to cut down gradually or stop straight off and go cold turkey

    Hi Unregistered,

    Sorry to read about your troubles. It definitley sounds like you want to leave the weed world behind you. And you have some pretty important reasons for doing it. You can do it but it will take some time to feel

    my symptoms

    Hi all,

    its good to read everyones stories here and know im not the only one who gets withdrawal from weed! most of my friends dont, they quit cold turkey with no issues. Ive quit and started using many times over, and have ran a few experiments on myself to observe the symptoms I get when Im using regularly, and when I quit.

    When using regularly (daily), the following were my worst side effects. Note, it took me a while to pin these symptoms on weed, partly because some take days to manifest; and partly because I didnt want weed to be the cause:

    -Poor sleep. Weed helps you get to sleep; and the first few nights you use it, you get a great nights sleep. But after a few nights, your brain depends on weed for sleep; and your sleep changes (you stop dreaming, for example). Eventually, I cant get to sleep without weed, and if I wake up after <8hrs, I have to toke up again to get back to sleep. And the more you smoke, the worse the problem gets. When I was using concentrates, I would wake up every 3 hours and have to smoke to get back to sleep.

    -Erectile dysfunction. Again, I am certain this has to do with smoking before bed. REM sleep is critical for regulating testosterone; so its logical that weed affects REM and could cause ED. It takes me 2-3 nights of smoking weed for me to start having problems; but they are noticeable: Dramatically decreased sex drive and ED. And dear god, when I stop smoking...days 2-4 Im horny as ****.

    -Groggy feeling This could be tied in with poor sleep; but there is a distinct groggyness that comes with heavy cannabis use.


    Now for the withdrawal symptoms. Im currently on day 7 of cold turkey; after tapering down for the 7 days prior to that.

    1. Insomnia. Starts day 2, continues for 3-5 days.

    The trick Ive found to preventing insomnia is by smoking the first few days you quit (this was my "taper" period); day 1 smoke 1hr before sleep, day 2 1.5hrs before, day 3 2 hrs before, etc. The goal is to get your brain to sleep sober, but using the tail end of your high to allow you to fall asleep. This made the first few days of this recovery infinitely easier than others (but its taking longer). Once your brain has slept sober for a few nights, it should be easier to get to sleep.

    The insomnia was way worse when I was smoking oils, compared to smoking mj; partly because the high from oils lasts 4-5hrs compared to 2-3 for weed (thats most of the night your brain will sleep high!)

    1.5. Poor sleep Starts day 2, continues for 3-8 days.
    Labeling 1.5 as it is related to insomnia. Even after tapering off, I still cant get a full nights sleep for at least a week.

    2. Cloudy Brain . Starts day 2, continues for 7-8 days

    Thinking is...hard. My brain just despises critical thinking when recovering; even forming sentences seems an arduous task. My brain feels sluggish, like I haven't slept in 2 days. Memory and recalling things is difficult.

    3. Headaches Starts day 2, continues for 4-7 days, peaks on days 5-7.

    The headache is always very distinct. In the temples, and above the eyes.
    One bizarre thing about weed withdrawal is that if I shake my head left/right really fast (like signalling "no"), the back of my head instantly starts hurting. Thats a sure way I can differentiate this from other causes.
    Another strange thing about the weed withdrawal headache is that it gets really bad if I exercise. Everyone says to workout when detoxing; I really am not able to.

    4. Facial pressure Starts day 3, continues for 4-7 days, peaks on days 5-7.
    This feels exactly like really bad sinus pressure. I feel pressure above my eyes, on my ear canals, and lymph nodes.
    Once, not knowing it was from withdrawal, I actually got a MRI. There wasnt even any mucous causing the pressure. Very strange. It seems areas of the face get sore on their own.

    5. Sore muscles Starts day 2, continues for 4-7
    I get sore legs and fingers from the time I wake up until I sleep. The soreness is typically mild though. But again, this is another reason I can not exercise when detoxing; my muscles just dont recover!

    6. Anxiety Starts day 2, continues for 3-5, peaks day 4
    Some people get terrible anxiety; I only get moderate anxiety which I am able to deal with. I can easily see how others could get panic attacks.
    It just makes evverything I do seem harder than it really is, which is taxing on your mental health.

    7. Depression Starts day 2, peaks day 3-4
    Its hard to tell you're depressed; but I do find myself feeling sad over nothing while detoxing (similar to a mild mdma comedown).

    8. Night sweats
    I sleep with a towel.

    9. Cold fingers and toes Starts day 2, peaks day 5-6
    This is really annoying

    10. NauseaStarts day 2, peaks day 2-3
    I usually only get bad nausea if I was smoking oils. The severe insomnia also makes the nausea even worse.

    The thing that has the biggest effect on how severe these symptoms are is how much you smoke. I used to smoke weed, and Id only have (1) and (3); and mild at that. Since I started using oils, I get all 9 of these bad boys; and (1)-(4) are

    Greetings peoples,

    Happy May, such as it is.

    Well, that job went bust. Yeah. Apparently the work load slowed down and they let go of the temps/contractors. I don't know if I was the only one to get the ax, but either way the whole thing sucks. They didn't
