Marijuana Rehab

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Otherwise known as cannabis, marijuana is a psychoactive drug that is used for both medical and recreational purposes. It is one of the most popular recreational drugs and can be smoked, vaporized, eaten in food, or even used as an extract.

According to the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, 52% of Americans aged 18 or older have tried marijuana at some point in their lives and 44% of these individuals currently use it. Some who use the drug become so dependent on it that they turn to Victory Bay for marijuana addiction treatment.

Marijuana Abuse


The symptoms of a marijuana high are less intense than the highs of other drugs and can last anywhere from two to six hours, depending on the method of use. Because of this, users tend to turn to marijuana often and some end up in need of marijuana treatment; some of the feelings when using the drug include:

  • A general change in perception
  • Heightened mood or “euphoria”
  • Increased appetite
  • Overall relaxation
  • Increased sensory awareness
