Did you know that 11% of people who actively use marijuana will become addicted to it? It’s a little known fact that is becoming less and less disseminated. Our youth is under the impression that marijuana is not a dangerous drug. According to DNA on Jan. 29th, cannabis addiction has rose ten-fold for young girls in the last two years. Doctors in the field state that the rife availability of marijuana are increasing the number of marijuana users.

It is their company’s mission to combat the rise of drug use with the implementation of prevention education and offering the nation the apex in drug detox, which is the first step in the treatment of drug addiction.

Drug use can be exasperated by peers, and the subsequent peer pressure that everyone is exposed to, especially at a younger age. DNA recommends parents to make themselves aware of changes within their childrens’ behavior, stemming from red rimmed eyes, irritability, and heightened violence. Quoting Dr. Shubhangi Parker, who promotes urinary screening for drugs in children to detect early use, “Even if the urine tests comes [back] positive, parent’s shouldn’t shout at the child. Addiction should be treated like any other disease. Psychiatric intervention should be done,”

There is a prevalence for youth to self medicate. Self medication is an attempt to allay the stressors of life, by dulling (and perhaps escaping) reality with the use of drugs. There are a myriad of reasons that teenagers tend to self medicate, stemming from attempted medical management, or emotional emotional of anger, depression, or guilt. Despite the medley of catalysts that can foment substance abuse disorders, treatment for addiction and substance abuse cannot be superficial or topical. Treatment must address the innermost core precipitating drug use. Drug use is not the problem, but a symptom of one. If one does not resolve the innermost crux of abuse the chance for relapse is high.

A medical professional at the drug and alcohol addiction treatment, Harbor Village Detox, comments on the information regarding marijuana, “There is an egregious amount of misinformation revolving marijuana, and its alleged ‘therapeutic’ and ‘creative’ uses. Young people get swept away by this romanticized vision of what this drug is supposed to be. But unfortunately this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Time and time again we see marijuana use become chronic and morph into addictions stemming from more harmful drugs. It’s a vicious cycle that we must learn to confront with efficiency for the longevity of our youth.”
