Union City Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Union City, New Jersey, like most of the country, is suffering from a substance abuse crisis. About 14% of all addiction treatment admissions in Union City in 2015 were for marijuana as the primary drug.1 It is a common misconception that marijuana is less harmful than many other substances; it can still cause serious side effects in those who abuse it, and in New Jersey, it is still considered a Schedule I substance.2

Marijuana abuse can cause a number of dangerous effects, such as:3

  • Hallucinations, delusions, and potential psychosis.
  • Memory lapses.
  • Impaired brain development in adolescents.
  • Breathing issues, including coughing and lung infection.
  • Rapid heart rate.
  • Worsening schizophrenia symptoms.

In addition, the use of marijuana, like other drugs, can lead to dependence. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms associated with marijuana dependence are:4

  • Insomnia or trouble sleeping.
  • Strong cravings for the drug.
  • Decreased appetite.
  • Anger and irritability.
  • Depression.

Chronic marijuana abuse can ultimately lead to addiction, which is characterized by compulsive use regardless of consequences. If you or someone you love is struggling with a marijuana addiction, you can find rehab centers in Union City or nearby that will help you deal with issues related to marijuana abuse.
