Synthetic marijuana, or Spice, is a relatively new product, like many designer drugs, and it is marketed as a “safe” alternative to marijuana. However, in the beginning of 2015 alone, there were more than 1000 reported overdose cases where hospitalization was required. Synthetic marijuana rehab programs have become an essential part of drug treatment due to this alarming trend.
The purpose of synthetic marijuana rehab programs is to help patients with detox and treatment for the addiction and abuse of the harmful drug. Spice is a mixture of various herbal mixtures that can produce a more intense high than marijuana. It is a synthetic cannabinoid which produces mind-altering effects.
Spice is addictive and as a result, usually requires rehab programs in order to effectively break the cycle of addiction. A rehab center can help with the withdrawal symptoms which include the following:
Furthermore, the psychological addiction can be dealt with through the help of qualified professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping people who suffer from addiction. Mental addiction to synthetic marijuana is especially like when a person has a history of addiction.
With home detox programs, there can be risk of complications due to prior medical conditions and it is therefore advised to seek professional help for drugs like Spice.
Rehab facilities can help manage the symptoms that are experienced during detox in a safe environment due the expertise of the clinicians and the medications on hand. The patient will also be under constant supervision in an inpatient program and the possibility of obtaining drugs in the facility is eliminated. Prior health condition can also be monitored during the detox to avoid complications.
Effective treatment programs share the same principles that are incorporated into their programs. The following are some of the principals to looks for in a synthetic marijuana treatment program:
During treatment, a patient will be made aware of situations that are likely to occur in the future after they leave rehab. This is done to prepare them for the possibility of relapse due to being overwhelmed emotionally or other trigger situations that may occur. The recovering addict will be given ways to deal with the situations as well as be given access to support groups that can be used when the risk of relapse occurs.
