Long-Term Effects of Marijuana Abuse

Chronic marijuana use may have long-term effects on mental health and activity. Depression, anxiety, and changes to personality may occur over time, and long-time use may lead to impaired cognitive development, struggles with learning, severe loss of motivation, and memory loss — especially in younger users.

Most recreational marijuana users smoke the drug, which comes with its own potential side effects. Smoking can cause lung infections, heart issues, compromised immune systems, brain damage, and increase the risk of cancer. Smoking marijuana is especially negative for pregnancy and may lead to fertility issues or developmental disorders. 

Arizona Marijuana Detox and Withdrawal

Whether or not a person is addicted to marijuana, they may still experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop using the drug. Withdrawal is usually at its most intense between 24 and 72 hours after last use, and may go on for one to two weeks. Symptoms are rarely a threat to one’s life, but they’re unpleasant enough to cause some people to relapse. Typical symptoms include: 

Some long-time marijuana users may experience Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS) once they stop using, meaning that these symptoms may continue for months or even up to two years after quitting. These include anxiety, consistent irritability, poor appetite, frequent distraction, difficulty making decisions, bad memory, and cravings for marijuana.

Treatment for Marijuana Addiction in Arizona

We understand that a dependence on cannabis to function can be a challenge to overcome, and the user may not even consider their marijuana use to be a major issue. Since the drug can also affect motivation, it can be difficult for those with marijuana addiction or marijuana use disorder to put the necessary work in to get clean.

At The River Source, we believe in healing the mind, body, and spirit through a full continuum of care, including proven and holistic therapies. When we treat marijuana addiction, we turn to talk therapy to help overcome the mental aspects of addiction, motivational incentives to help clients find the drive to take back control of their life, and individualized treatment plans to provide the tools that will help each client succeed in getting clean on their own terms.
