Marijuana Addiction Treatment


Even though laws and attitudes surrounding marijuana have changed in recent years, the fact remains that it can still negatively impact users’ lives. Anyone can become an addict. In addition, its status as a gateway drug means that a user may transition to harsher and more dangerous drugs such as cocaine and heroin.

That’s why Transformations By The Gulf in St. Pete Beach, Florida, offers comprehensive and holistic marijuana addiction help. Our approach encompasses numerous treatment options that are designed to show clients the way out of their addictions and help them live happier, more meaningful lives free of substance abuse.

How We Can Help


If you or a loved one are suffering the effects of ganja addiction, treatment may be closer than you think. We offer a holistic approach, meaning our care is personalized and multifaceted. It takes into consideration every aspect of the person receiving help — physical, spiritual and mental. The three primary types of programs we offer are:

  • Residential treatment: Receive 24/7 access to specialists in a safe, homelike environment.
  • Day treatment with community housing: This program allows patients to receive cannabis rehab during the day before they adjourn to separate housing for men and women in the evening.
  • Intensive outpatient programs: These consist of structured groups as well as individual counseling sessions. They provide complete treatment for pot addiction while allowing patients to continue their normal lives.

How Marijuana Addiction Harms Individuals


Whether smoked as a joint or consumed as an edible, marijuana delivers THC to the brain. This chemical bonds with specific cannabinoid receptors that cause feelings of relaxation and pleasure. As with other drugs, users can become dependent on these sensations and start to physically crave them, which may lead to addiction.

Without THC addiction treatment, addicts could put themselves at risk of short- and long-term health effects. Because marijuana contains three to five times more carbon monoxide than tobacco, it can damage the lungs when smoked, sometimes leading to chronic bronchitis and potentially lung cancer. Marijuana may also affect the brain’s neural pathways, impairing cognitive abilities and causing memory loss and poor judgment if used habitually.

Each person has unique requirements in addiction treatment, but generally, an individual should seek a residential treatment program for addiction if he or she:


Is attempting to live sober for the first time
Suffers from a severe addiction and may require medical detox
Is a threat to others, self and/or has a non-supportive home life
Has or may have a co-occurring mental health disorder
Unsuccessful past outpatient treatment programs or support groups
Lacking experience or tools necessary to cope with addictive behaviors
