Understanding Marijuana Abuse
Inpatient treatment for cannabis addictions
Day treatment allows the individual to enroll in a treatment program, while still being able to go home at night. This type of program is best suited for those who are self-starters and serious about getting over their addiction to Marijuana. Still requiring a large time commitment, these types of programs offer 2-8 hour day programs for 3-7 days a week, depending on the program offerings. Day treatment can also have a sober living component that will allow for partially supervised housing while enrolled in their program.
Cannabis use can lead to some addictive behaviors. If you need help, please do not hesitate to call us, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
