Drug Addiction Treatment Centers offer no-cost consultations for individuals seeking relief from drug and alcohol addiction. Call (306) 500-1060 for an appointment at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

A Saskatoon alcohol and drug rehab center is announcing that it has started a new program to stop marijuana addiction for adults and adolescents at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Information from the Government of Canada website indicates that "marijuana, hash, hash oil, and hemp are different products coming from the Cannabis sativa (cannabis) plant. They all contain, in varying amounts, the psychoactive substance known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is considered a hallucinogen. THC is what makes the user feel 'high' but it has many other effects as well. As THC enters the brain, users may feel anxious, euphoric (or 'high'), and/or fearful. Others may feel relaxed and talkative. Some people enjoy the perceptual distortions produced by cannabis. Other people find these effects to be unpleasant. When first using cannabis, many people do not experience psychoactive effects, but these effects begin to appear with repeated use."

Drug rehabilitation allows adults and adolescents a chance to detox from marijuana and receive counseling and support through therapeutic efforts.

More times than not, real-life issues are steering a person toward an addictive lifestyle of drug use. Issues might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse. Drug rehab allows clients time to discern and figure out what is their truth around these situations.

Counselors and therapists with many years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment and addiction can help make the transition from addiction to recovery easier. These drug rehab staff members can rely on their personal and professional experiences with addiction to offer compassion and support to recovering individuals working to overcome their addictions.

Staff and clients are able to exchange stories of shared experiences, which will let recovering individuals know they are not alone in their journey. The relationships formed between recovering individuals and staff members provide a strong support network that offers strength and guidance during the recovery journey, throughout the transition to life outside of treatment and as recovering individuals adjust to sobriety. Entering and going through drug rehab can become a life-changing journey for any person serious about kicking their habit.
