Find Rehab in Georgia

Addiction cannot be treated by treating the symptoms alone. We use holistic and evidence-based methods to treat the entire individual.

Marijuana, often perceived as a relatively harmless drug, is widely used across various demographics. In Atlanta, Georgia, like in many urban areas, marijuana usage has become increasingly common. Recent statistics indicate that a significant portion of the population has experimented with marijuana at some point in their lives. This widespread use, however, does not come without its risks and potential for addiction.

If you or a loved one are struggling with marijuana addiction, North Atlanta Behavioral Health offers outpatient marijuana rehab in Roswell, Georgia. Call us now at 770-230-5699.

The Dangers of Marijuana Addiction

While marijuana is often seen as a less harmful substance compared to other drugs, the reality of its addiction can be quite serious. Marijuana addiction can lead to a range of physical, psychological, and social issues. Physically, it can affect lung health and cognitive functions. Psychologically, it can lead to dependence, where individuals may experience anxiety, irritability, or depression when not using the drug. Socially, chronic marijuana use can impact relationships, job performance, and academic achievements. Recognizing these potential dangers is crucial for understanding why effective treatment is necessary.

Overcome Addiction with evidence-based, expert care.
