Overcome marijuana addiction

Addiction to marijuana is real — and it’s a very real problem, including in and around Chicago. Data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) say 10.9 percent of people in our area have used marijuana in the past year. That’s higher than the overall rate for Illinois.

At Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, our team of psychiatrists and therapists is here to guide you along your recovery from marijuana addiction.

The first step to feeling better is identifying the problem. During our confidential one-on-one assessment, a licensed counselor will help determine the appropriate level of care so we can best meet your needs. 

Treatment options for marijuana addiction

You don’t have to overcome marijuana addiction alone. Our recovery programs are designed to help you get sober and stay sober. We offer a range of marijuana addiction treatments, including inpatient care options. One inpatient option is focused on detoxification in the hospital and the other is in a residential setting.

Medication-assisted therapy

Medication-assisted therapy (MAT) is a particularly helpful treatment option for substance abuse that isn’t widely available elsewhere in our area. Depending on your particular substance use disorder and your symptoms, our doctors may be able to prescribe medication to help restore your brain’s normal functions. MAT can also reduce your withdrawal symptoms and decrease your cravings.

What to expect from your treatment

You may feel embarrassed or ashamed of your addiction. But there is no shame in addiction. You can’t control how your body reacts to addictive substances like marijuana.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery from marijuana addiction. Each person’s journey is unique. But we’re here to help you make sure that journey is a successful one.

Ongoing support for marijuana addiction

Recovering from marijuana isn’t just a one-time event. It’s a lifelong process. We’ll help you learn the life skills you’ll need to avoid marijuana one day at a time.

It’s important to know that you and your family aren’t alone. Many people have been where you are now. You can learn from their stories and share your own as part of a support group. These groups can help you learn new ways to cope with and heal from your addiction. These addiction support groups meet at different places and times.
