When bomb squad officials were called to the scene near Gadsden, Alabama, they thought they would be dealing with high-level explosive devices. However, the package turned out to contain a large amount of marijuana instead, according to the Gadsden Times.
Though not as immediately threatening as a bomb, marijuana can be devastating to the user over time. In fact, about nine percent of those who try the drug will ultimately develop a substance abuse problem as a result. Though many believe that smoking marijuana is harmless, the fact is that the evidence is continuing to pile up supporting the fact that it is the exact opposite.
Marijuana Dependence Is Treatable
If your loved one is struggling due to ongoing marijuana abuse or addiction, they don’t need to continue living in this trap. Treatment services of varying intensity are available to meet them where they are in their need for assistance in recovery. Some options include:
- Weekly therapeutic services. Group therapy sessions, personal therapy sessions, and other substance abuse treatment sessions can be had on an outpatient basis to address substance abuse.
- Outpatient treatment. Intensive outpatient care can provide for help when your loved one struggles with dependence upon their drug of choice or chronic relapse.
- Inpatient rehab. Around-the-clock monitoring can be hugely beneficial for those who require detox assistance and therapeutic intervention.
- Sober living. Learning how to live without relapse can take time, and a protected, sober living environment can help people to transition from rehab into an independent life of recovery.
