What Is Delta-9?

Cannabis, also called marijuana, contains cannabinoids, which are chemicals that affect the body in a variety of ways. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of the well-known cannabinoids, and the most abundant form of THC is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.

So what is delta-9? It’s found in Cannabis sativa and is what produces the powerful effects of marijuana. It can alter your perception, make you giddy, and increase your focus, but delta-9 also causes:

  • Increased appetite
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty speaking and thinking
  • Dry mouth
  • Slowed reaction times
  • Memory loss
  • Increased heart rate
  • Red eyes

Delta-9 triggers a release of dopamine, a feel-good chemical. Dopamine floods your system, leading your brain to register it as a positive experience it wants to repeat.

About Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

Many times, people don’t realize how quickly you can develop marijuana abuse, making you dependent on the drug to feel pleasure. At our treatment center, we offer programs to treat marijuana abuse so that you can break free from the hold the drug has on you.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program offers a high level of care, allowing you to get treatment comparable to inpatient care but without asking you to remain at our facilities overnight. It is an option well-suited for people who are just starting treatment but who have job or family responsibilities that make it impossible to choose residential care.

Our PHP offers individual therapy sessions to help you uncover what led to the addiction and what may be standing in your way of recovery. We also offer group therapy to help you see that you are not alone in your struggles with addiction.

Intensive Outpatient Program

For those who have completed a PHP or can benefit from fewer treatment hours, we offer our intensive outpatient program (IOP). You have fewer treatment hours, but you still have a strong level of support when you need it, allowing you to focus on practicing what you’ve learned in therapy.

Our IOP offers individual and group therapy sessions that apply evidence-based therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. We combine these with holistic treatments that include yoga and meditation.

Outpatient Program

A step down from our IOP, this program gives you even more independence. It prepares you to manage your daily life once you complete official treatment. Just like our other programs, it provides individual and group therapy, but you have fewer hours of therapy each week.

During our outpatient program, we focus on relapse prevention to give you the tools you need to tackle triggers and manage cravings so you can avoid relapses. This will help you establish an environment where you can feel comfortable recovering with minimal roadblocks.
