Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
A Montreal alcohol and drug rehab center is announcing a new program geared toward helping adolescents, especially those in high school, cut down and stop their marijuana addiction through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
A report from the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse indicates that in Quebec, 7.6 percent of seventh-graders, 28.9 percent of ninth-graders and 38.2 percent of 10th-graders have used marijuana or cannabis in the past year. Also, 14–21 percent of students in Grade 12 report driving within an hour of using cannabis.
Marijuana addiction has been known to slow down a person's reaction period. So if an adolescent is driving and comes up to an icy patch of road in Montreal, his or her reaction time can be the difference - in some cases - between life and death.
Drug Addiction Treatment Centers give adolescents time to detox from marijuana use. Detox cleanses out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances. Marijuana detox’s main goal is to rid the body of chemical toxins.
Counselors are ready and waiting to help adolescents begin to make sense of their lives and direct them in healthier patterns of life. Many times, everything from peer pressure at school to environmental issues within an adolescent's home life play roles in marijuana addiction.
This group of support helps 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 of the Irvine drug rehab center 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.
