Other names include Ganja, Weed, Pot, Bhang, Grass, Charas, Hashish, Mary Jane, Dagga and Dope. Concentrated extract of cannabis is called Hashish.

  • Effects
  • Withdrawal
  • Comorbidity
  • Risk Factors

Consumption of Cannabis leads to sensation of slowed time, euphoria, impaired motor coordination, anxiety, impaired social judgement, and increased appetite. Adverse effects may include dry mouth and increase in heart rate. Signs of acute and chronic usage are red eyes, yellowing of fingertips, chronic cough, burning of incense to hide the odour, exaggerated craving for specific foods, sometimes at unusual times of day or night.Smoking cannabis increases the likelihood of developing a respiratory illness. Accidents and injuries are often reported due to engagement in dangerous activities under the influence. Cannabis use has been linked to schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders.

Withdrawal could vary depending on the use. It may cause irritability, depressed mood, anger or aggressive behaviour, anxiety, restlessness, sleep difficulty, decreased appetite or weight loss, tremor or chills, stomach pain and head ache.

It is often associated with other substance use disorders such as alcohol, cocaine, and opioid. Commonly co-occurs with depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, conduct disorder, antisocial personality disorder. It is also associated with increased risk of suicide.

It is associated with several medical conditions, such as impaired cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, neuromuscular, and reproductive functioning.

  • Early cannabis use (prior to age 15) is connected to the development of cannabis use disorder as well as other mental health problems.
  • Temperament : Those with problems in conduct or with antisocial personality disorder are more prone to developing this disorder. Disinhibition in behaviour from an early age is associated with many substance use disorders, including cannabis.
  • Environmental : Individuals with backgrounds of academic failure, unstable families, tobacco smoking, are at a greater risk.
  • In addition, family history of substance use disorder or use of cannabis amongst family members, low socio-economic status, and ease of availability also increase the risk.

Personalized Care Plans :

  • Medications
  • Counselling / Therapy

Medications are given to manage the craving or desire to consume forms of cannabis.

Quitting the addictive substance is the first step and the crucial beginning of a long battle against craving and relapse. Counseling is an essential part of treatment for all patients of addiction. Drug refusal skills, craving management, anger management, and problem solving skills are various skills to be imparted to the patient in counseling and help those recovering from addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also be used to treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to addiction.

Why counseling is important in Addiction Treatment?

Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Even after detox, when physical dependence is cured, patients are at high risk for relapse. Psychological and social factors are often powerful stimuli for relapse, which include :

  • Stress, especially sudden life stresses
  • Cues in the environment, like visiting a neighborhood where the substance is easily available
  • Social networks, like spending time with friends who continue to use drugs, alcohol and tobacco

These factors can create ongoing, nearly irresistible urges to use various substances of abuse. Counseling helps patients escape craving and learn to cope with life, without falling prey to addiction. Several counseling therapies are available for addictions abuse, and no method is known to be the best. Likewise, no one approach is appropriate for everyone with addiction. At UMANG CLINIC, a personalized counseling & treatment plan will be designed to cater to each individual’s addiction problem.

Effectiveness & Importance Of Treatment

Treatment enables people to counteract addiction's powerful disruptive effects on the brain and behavior and to regain control of their lives. In addition to stopping regular substance use, the goal of treatment is to return people to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and community.

Nearly all patients suffering from addiction problem believe at the outset that they can stop using drugs on their own, some succeed but unfortunately most relapse. The psychological and physiological dependence which the patient is habituated to requires professional treatment and guidance which increases their chances of being successful and achieve long-term abstinence.
