Cannabis Rehab


At one time cannabis was considered a drug that had no withdrawal symptoms because users did not display symptoms similar to those withdrawing from alcohol or opiates. However over more recent years it has become increasingly evident that heavy cannabis users have clear psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms when attempting to kick the habit. Most commonly cannabis withdrawal symptoms can include but are not limited to irritability, sleeping difficulties, mood swings and loss of appetite.


Incredibly, may people still see cannabis as a fairly harmless drug even though recent research into cannabis use by the Royal College of Psychiatrists demonstrates that 1 in 10 have a very unpleasant experience including confusion, anxiety, hallucinations and paranoia. Long term use also leads to loss of motivation and depression. Other recent research has shown that the drug can be a major cause of psychotic illness such as schizophrenia.

The detox procedure for cannabis is tailored on an individual basis to suit the needs of the individual. The client will be assessed and withdrawal symptoms explore before an appropriate detox regime is prescribed. The goal of the detox is to help the individual become drug free and minimise any withdrawal symptoms. Generally speaking the medication used in these circumstances lowers anxiety and assists with insomnia.

Year on year at The Providence Projects we see a rise in the number of people presenting with a cannabis addiction as the strength of cannabis in the UK continues to grow. We have seen how cannabis misuse can tear families apart, ruin lives and break relationships. Cannabis detox and cannabis treatment is often essential to break this cycle, address the underlying psychological issues and develop the skills to maintain recovery.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”

You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
