Union City Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Union City, New Jersey, like most of the country, is suffering from a substance abuse crisis. About 14% of all addiction treatment admissions in Union City in 2015 were for marijuana as the primary drug.1 It is a common misconception that marijuana is less harmful than many other substances; it can still cause serious side effects in those who abuse it, and in New Jersey, it is still considered a Schedule I substance.2

Marijuana abuse can cause a number of dangerous effects, such as:3

  • Hallucinations, delusions, and potential psychosis.
  • Memory lapses.
  • Impaired brain development in adolescents.
  • Breathing issues, including coughing and lung infection.
  • Rapid heart rate.
  • Worsening schizophrenia symptoms.

In addition, the use of marijuana, like other drugs, can lead to dependence. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms associated with marijuana dependence are:4

  • Insomnia or trouble sleeping.
  • Strong cravings for the drug.
  • Decreased appetite.
  • Anger and irritability.
  • Depression.

Chronic marijuana abuse can ultimately lead to addiction, which is characterized by compulsive use regardless of consequences. If you or someone you love is struggling with a marijuana addiction, you can find rehab centers in Union City or nearby that will help you deal with issues related to marijuana abuse.

Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist Recovery Institute of Ohio

My name is Jessica Kitchin and I am currently the Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist at Recovery Institute of Ohio. In August of 2018, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Addiction Counseling. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Obtaining these degrees and progressing in my life was always part of my plan as a child; however, when I started drinking regularly by the age of 12 and using drugs at the age of 16, I didn’t think my life was going to end up the way it has. Even though I attended college for education, I found myself drinking and heavily using drugs, until I dropped out with one semester left. My addiction completely controlled my life.

Things to Discuss Before Going to a Treatment Program
Part of a successful recovery program involves understanding the purpose of the process that takes place within an addiction treatment facility. Breaking the cycle of addiction is first and foremost, which is one of the primary objectives carried out inside a treatment program. Eliminating the drug from your system is just part of breaking the addiction cycle, though an essential part.

Once your body is free of any drug or alcohol effects, you can actually start to heal from the damaging effects of the drug and address the emotional issues that feed the addiction cycle.
