Non-12 Step Treatment for Marijuana Addiction

Non-12 Step Treatment for Marijuana Addiction.
While some people can use marijuana without it seriously affecting their daily lives, others may find that using it frequently has a negative impact on their relationships and responsibilities. That’s because marijuana has the ability to put out your fire – and that fire is necessary for living an exciting, passionate life.

At The Sanctuary, we understand how difficult it can be to feel disengaged from your own life. That’s why our marijuana addiction rehab program entails a comprehensive recovery journey that helps clear away stagnant energy and bring vivacity back into your life. We do so by:

  • Utilizing an array of holistic therapies
  • Using superfood nutrition to detox and revive your brain and body
  • Identifying belief systems that may be limiting you
  • Getting to the underlying cause of your addiction
  • Preventing your unwanted behavior from recurring

Our non-12 Step treatment program for marijuana addiction is designed to help lift the fog and sluggishness of excessive marijuana use, and reconnect you to your inner strength. 

The Sanctuary at Sedona founder Dean Taraborelli discusses in detail the nature of marijuana addiction and The Sanctuary’s approach to the treatment of marijuana with its integrative holistic addiction recovery program and getting to the root cause.

How are Non-12 Step Treatment Programs for Marijuana Addiction Different?

The 12-Step philosophy views addiction as something that can never be cured. In this view, even after treatment, the addiction still lies dormant, waiting to be reawakened.

But in our radically different view of the healing process, you can completely walk away from the notion of being addicted at all. Instead of being a lifelong “recovering addict,” you can be fully recovered from addiction. When healing is complete, the root causes of the addiction is released – meaning you never have to relive them again.

Identifying with a set of problems is no way to live life to its fullest. With our non-12 Step cure for marijuana addiction you’ll learn to see problems for what they are, not as a part of you, and empower yourself to move past them once and for all.

What are the Types of Non-12 Step Treatment Programs?

Non-12 Step marijuana addiction rehabs may vary widely in their approach to treatment. At The Sanctuary, our treatment program is fully customizable, and may include any of the following therapies:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Somatic experiencing (SEP)
  • Holotropic breathwork
  • Brain mapping
  • Couples and family therapy

  • Sound healing therapy

  • Mindfulness-based relapse prevention

This access to a wide and constantly evolving variety of healing modalities is part of what makes our program so unique. You’re not limited to one, prescribed treatment approach. We encourage you to try different avenues and find what works best for you.

Why Should I Choose Non-12 Step Rehab?

The traditional addiction recovery model in the US is one that’s based on a powerful, self-defeating belief. In this 12-Step belief system, relapse is expected. The threat of lapsing into old patterns is everywhere, waiting for your next moment of weakness. This also tells people that once they experience addiction, they can never be free of it. If you’ve tried previously to recover in this type of environment, it’s not surprising that you lived up to its expectations.

The Sanctuary is dramatically different. We too have expectations. We expect that with the right environment and right applied information, you can heal profoundly. We expect, too, that such healing returns you to your authentic and whole self: vibrant, joyful and empowered; connected to others and to the world around you.

What Causes Marijuana Addiction?

Marijuana addiction is typically slow to reveal its full negative effects, especially to the person using it. Like in many other addictions, it convinces us that all is well.

But marijuana’s harmful realities are revealed in the way it changes the brain. Numbed mental processes lead to apathy, lethargy and passiveness. Basic human capacities like memory, learning, problem solving and decision making are impaired. Research has even shown that chronic use can cause measurable losses in IQ.

Though marijuana doesn’t cause the physical dependence that characterizes “harder” drugs, many people find themselves psychologically addicted. That is, attempts to quit are often accompanied by intense cravings, which keep people from successfully parting ways with marijuana once it becomes a habit.

The drive we need to envision and create our best lives slips away when we’re addicted to marijuana. This eventually leads to a deep dissatisfaction with life – and the seeming inability to do anything about it.

Holistic, Non-12 Step Marijuana Addiction Treatment

The Sanctuary’s holistic marijuana addiction rehab program seamlessly weaves together groundbreaking science and powerful ancient healing techniques. Our integrated approach is rooted in the most modern scientific advancements in understanding how addiction works.

We believe a program isn’t truly holistic if any part of the healing process is ignored. We place equal importance on the clinical, scientific, energetic, physical and nutritional aspects of care.

‘Holistic’ doesn’t just mean we offer alternative therapies as add-ons. Our integrated program ties all components together into a complete, organized experience that takes you from one place in your life to the next. Each aspect of the program supports the other to help you become more receptive to all areas of treatment.

How to Prevent Marijuana Addiction

On the surface, addiction appears to be about substances, but the reality is that there’s so much more to it. We often reach for substances that alter our state because we don’t like how we feel in the first place. The real question is, what is making us so uncomfortable?

As opposed to looking to sources outside ourselves to fulfill our inner need for happiness – an approach that serves only to perpetuate addiction – the process of finding our true meaning begins with an inward journey. It’s this reconnection with self that prevents us from feeling the need to use marijuana to escape. Once you feel fulfilled within yourself, you won’t feel the need to look for external sources of meaning.

Who is Most at Risk for Marijuana Addiction?

Many people considering treatment for marijuana addiction have questions like:

  • What if I have a family history of addiction?
  • What if I’ve tried many times to recover?

The good news is that even if you carry a genetic tendency toward addiction, this doesn’t mean you’re destined to be a lifelong addict. In fact, new scientific discoveries in epigenetics tell us that we’re not genetically bound to do anything we don’t want to do. We can influence our genetic expression with our thoughts and behaviors – and choose another path than our “genetic inheritance.”

If you didn’t have treatment success at other marijuana addiction rehabs before, you may feel like you failed, but it’s more likely that the treatment you chose failed you. The Sanctuary operates on a completely different paradigm than other rehabs. We promote a depth of healing that allows you to walk away from the possibility of relapse.

How can I Cope With Marijuana Addiction?

Another common question among those seeking marijuana treatment is:

  • What if I’ve used marijuana so long that I’ve damaged my brain and body?

All addictive drug use changes the brain and weakens the body. The Sanctuary works with you at all levels to heal these conditions. We use nutrition, exercise and body work, as well as the energies of nature, to reconnect you to your life force. Challenging self-sabotaging beliefs frees you up to take on nourishing and empowering ones.

How can The Sanctuary at Sedona Help You?

The synergistic combination of therapies we use is designed to positively change the pathways in the brain. By leaving self-defeating neural connections behind, you’ll forge new ones that strengthen and sustain your recovery. The damage caused by marijuana use begins to reverse as you activate your brain’s natural healing abilities.

Getting caught up in our coping mechanisms for long periods of time allows us to avoid the full range of life’s experiences, eventually cutting us off from our own energy. Healing frees you to reincorporate those parts of yourself that have been neglected and dulled over time, allowing you to come back online. Clients who complete our non-12 Step marijuana addiction treatment program find they feel noticeably lighter, brighter and more energetic than they were before.

What clients say about The Sanctuary’s marijuana addiction rehab:

Here’s what some of our previous graduates have said about their experience with us:

“Nutrition and body work were excellent. Very experienced healers and real life recovery champions!”

“Provides a safe and supportive space for healing. Helps a person connect the dots about themselves where they might not have been able to do on their own. Creates a family/tribe environment.”

“I can’t name everything that is done well, because it all is. I can’t think of a single thing that I would have changed with my experience going through the program. Calling the Sanctuary utterly remarkable is a severe understatement.”

The effects of marijuana may not be as profound as what we think of as “harder” drugs. But when our senses are dulled, we miss cues from the universe – and it’s exactly those messages that turn an average journey into an amazing one. The universe speaks in subtle tones, and substances make them harder to detect.

But when we’re aware of all that’s taking place within and around us, we’re less likely to miss opportunities, or to interpret them incorrectly. We’re more likely to go out and do something with our lives.

By connecting to our purpose, discovering our life’s mission and finding inspiration in the world around us, we can express our full potential and welcome possibilities with open arms. 

Recovery isn’t just about abstinence, it’s about designing a life that brings you joy. 

We’re here to  support that transformation. Contact us today to learn how.
