Getting started is often the hardest part of the road to recovery. While we acknowledge that detox can be an uncomfortable process, at Remedy Recovery we support the use of cannabis to relieve that discomfort. Our goal is to maximize your comfort. Since it has no interactions with other detox medications, cannabis can be a valuable tool to alleviate much of the discomfort associated with the early days of change.
Our experience has shown us that when someone has been using drugs for a prolonged period of time, moving straight to abstinence within 30 days may not be a realistic undertaking. In some cases, it may not even be the best strategy.
At Remedy Recovery, we are focused on collaborative treatment plans because we consider our clients to be the most important voice in their recovery. Our ethical, educated, and experienced clinical staff provide a solid foundation for setting goals, as well as the support to meet those goals. We’re here to help you recover — not dictate how you do it.
Using Marijuana to Treat Opioid Addiction
Research supports our belief that cannabis can be a vital tool as an exit drug from self-harming drug use. Its innovative use as a harm-reduction approach to opioid addiction has proven to be successful in reducing deaths, assisting withdrawal from opioids , aiding the cleansing process, helping with discomfort, insomnia, and flu-like symptoms associated with the withdrawal process thus reducing or eliminating the need for other drugs, and significantly decreasing the use of highly addictive opioids to control pain.
After the initial cleansing process, our clinical team provide a comprehensive and collaborative evaluation to determine an individual’s goals for recovery. The determination of how marijuana is used is ultimately made in partnership with the doctor. Options for cannabis use are open post-detox, under medical supervision.
We support our patients’ cannabis replacement approach, where it is in full compliance with the law and under medical supervision.
