As more states begin to legalize the use of Marijuana, it does not mean that people will not become addicted to the drug. If anything the main reason more people have not used the drug in the past is because it has been illegal, but once that changes, more people will begin to use it, which will change the face of Marijuana abuse and addiction and the need for rehab treatment.
Here are 7 Marijuana rehab tips.
1. Attitude Matters
For rehab treatment to be successful there needs to be at least an attitude of acceptance. In the beginning, acceptance may not be where your attitude rests, but it is possible that through rehab treatment you could develop a more positive attitude toward rehab.
Drinking plenty of water will help you remove the chemical toxins from your system as a result of your Marijuana abuse or addiction. That may sound simple, but it is true. Hydrate before you go to rehab and while you are in rehab. Drinking plenty of water and flushing your system may also help to improve your attitude towards rehab treatment.
3. Packing for Rehab
Do not try to smuggle contraband into rehab. The whole purpose in going to rehab treatment is to get better. If you are trying to get drugs into rehab, you might as well not go. Rather, follow the list of appropriate items allowed and make the most of personal items that will keep you comfortable, especially mementos of happier times pre-Marijuana abuse.
4. Get Plenty Rest
Resist the urge to binge before you go. This will only make your first few days more difficult in Marijuana rehab treatment. Instead, get plenty rest before you go, spend time with loved ones and family pets, take long walks, eat well and nutritiously and prepare yourself mentally.
5. Keep a Journal
Keeping a journal of your thoughts and feelings as you go through the process will help you work out conflicts, forgiveness and acceptance. This is a time for you to consider how you can use self change and to reevaluate your choices and habits for a more positive life when you return.
6. Clue in your Family and Friends
Once you have prepared to go to Marijuana rehab treatment, let your family and close friends know where you are going and how long you will be gone. Make sure that you take care of anything that cannot wait for your return. The last thing you need is to come home to any surprises.
7. Honesty is the Best Policy
When you enter Marijuana rehab treatment, it is important that you are honest with them about whatever is going on with you. If you have depression, have an eating disorder, are bipolar; anything that could be a stumbling block to your success, let them know. It is also important that you ask questions about what to expect, how to plan for returning home, and how to be successful after rehab, such as participating in a community program.
