The Cabin Hong Kong is an Effective and Affordable Marijuana Rehabilitation Centre for Hong Kong Residents
Hong Kong still stands strong on its zero-tolerance policy for marijuana use, but that does not mean that people aren’t using the drug more and more frequently. Though countries around the world are relaxing their marijuana laws, marijuana use to rise in Hong Kong despite its strict ban. Marijuana rehabilitation centres are now necessary as more and more users are developing marijuana addictions.
Is Marijuana Addiction Real?
Unfortunately, many people still do not believe that marijuana is addictive, and thus do not take the appropriate measures to get help when they do become addicted. Marijuana addiction is in fact very real, and more common than one might think.
What starts as a joint after work to relax can become something you need in order to get through the day. This is called developing a dependence on the drug, and is the first sign of addiction.
Effects of Marijuana Addiction
Other symptoms of marijuana addiction include:
- Loss of interest in hobbies, school or work
- Increased appetite or weight gain
- Distorted perceptions
- Poor memory and coordination
- Slowed reactions
- Rapid heartbeat
Long-term effects include but are not limited to frequent anxiety, memory loss, depression and lowered immune system.
Types of Marijuana Addiction Treatment
Both inpatient and outpatient rehab centres are viable options to treat marijuana addiction. Typically, outpatient treatment centres are best for addicts who have not yet ‘lost everything’ and can still maintain aspects of their regular life such as holding down a job or tending to family obligations.
Inpatient centres are required when an addict’s addiction is completely out of control, and the addict requires more intensive treatment and must live on the grounds of the rehabilitation centre for the duration of the treatment programme.
What are the Benefits of an Outpatient Marijuana Rehabilitation Centre?
There are many benefits of attending marijuana rehab at an outpatient facility centre, but most clients agree that the top benefits are as follows:
- Convenient Location
Unlike residential rehabs which typically require an addict to travel, outpatient rehab centres are located in convenient locations in your community.
- Flexible Hours
Outpatient centres can offer counselling sessions scheduled around your work and family commitments.
- Personal and Group Counselling Sessions
Rather than meeting with a personal addictions counsellor privately, outpatient programmes offer both one-on-one and group counselling sessions facilitated by our staff members. This combination often quickens the results of addiction treatment.
All information is kept completely confidential.
- Family Support
Because clients of an outpatient centre still reside at their own home during treatment, they are able to reap the benefits of family support during the programme.
- Less Disruption
Overall, when compared to residential rehab, outpatient centres can offer effective addiction treatment without completely disrupting the client’s home life. Not everyone can leave work or family obligations, and many want to keep their treatment as quiet as possible. This type of treatment allows clients to essentially keep up with day-to-day appearances while still getting the treatment they need.
Is Marijuana Rehab Confidential?
Yes! Marijuana rehabilitation services are 100% confidential. It is completely up to you to decide who you would like to tell about your treatment.
What is the Cost of Marijuana Addiction Treatment?
Outpatient addiction treatment is a cost-effective option as far as quality drug rehab goes. However, when considering your options for treatment, be sure to take into consideration not only the cost, but the qualifications of the team, past success rates, and comprehensiveness of the treatment offered.
Is Marijuana Rehab Covered by Insurance?
In some cases, marijuana rehab will be covered by insurance. Speak to the administration staff to find out whether your particular insurance is accepted.
Why Choose The Cabin Hong Kong as Your Marijuana Rehabilitation Centre?
The Cabin Hong Kong is part of The Cabin Addiction Services Group, a world leader in addiction treatment based in Southeast Asia. The centre offers an intensive outpatient addiction treatment programme to combat marijuana addiction while still allowing clients to attend to their home and work obligations.
The Cabin makes it possible to simultaneously get the marijuana rehabilitation services needed to enter addiction recovery by offering a flexible and convenient counselling schedule that can be adapted to even the busiest of schedules.
What Happens During Treatment?
The first step in marijuana addiction treatment at The Cabin Hong Kong is a personal client assessment. This will allow our qualified counsellors to get a better understanding of each client’s personal addiction situation. Just as no two people are alike, neither are their addictions.
From there, clients will be booked in for typically one individual session along with 2 to 3 group sessions per week. Depending on the progress of each individual client, these sessions may be reduced and will be tapered off to typically once per week nearing the end of treatment.
During these sessions clients will come to understand how to recognise triggers and learn the necessary tools of which they can use to build a life in recovery.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Many addicts who suffer from anxiety or trauma disorders use marijuana in an effort to escape from the feelings associated with these disorders. However, instead of fixing the problem, it exacerbates it in the long-run. For those who are dealing with underlying mental health issues, our experienced counsellors will not only help these addicts deal with their addiction, but they are able to tackle these disorders as well, decreasing the chance for relapse later on.
Marijuana Rehab That Works
The Cabin Hong Kong treats marijuana addiction with its own unique treatment method, Recovery Zones, designed specifically to treat addiction in an outpatient setting.
All sessions are conducted by English speaking, Western-certified counsellors who have years of experience helping addicts achieve recovery. Sessions take place on weekday evenings so as not to get in the way of clients’ work or family obligations. The Cabin Hong Kong’s goal is to deliver confidential, world-class treatment to those with busy lifestyles.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
Marijuana rehabilitation is never exactly the same for any two clients, but in general, the rehabilitation programme lasts approximately 6 months. Some clients may need further intensive counselling, while others will be ready to complete treatment after this time.
The marijuana rehabilitation programme is typically 6 months in length and clients are encouraged to attend one individual session along with 2 to 3 group sessions each week at the start of the 6-month period.
In some cases, during the initial assessment, our counsellors may suggest that a client begin their treatment at a residential rehab facility. This is typically only suggested when the addiction is severe. In these cases, clients will be referred to our inpatient programme at The Cabin Chiang Mai.
What Happens After Marijuana Rehab?
After completing the marijuana rehabilitation programme with The Cabin Hong Kong, clients will be encouraged to continue attending group meetings at least once per week. Without constant support from other addicts and counsellors, it is easy to relapse – especially in early recovery. Like with all addiction recovery, it is recommended to find a sponsor as well – someone who has already been in your shoes and can help you through the hard times.
As well, our clients are always encourage to contact us if they ever believe that they are slipping up in recovery and need some guidance.
The Time to Get the Help You Need is Now.
The sooner that an addict seeks treatment for their addiction, the better their chances are of a successful recovery which is why it is so important to ask for help as soon as you realise there is a problem.
We understand how difficult it can be to reach out and admit that you have a problem. And many of our clients in the past have been scared to start treatment in fear of others finding out. But you can rest assured that our services are completely confidential, and the sooner you get help, the sooner you can start leading a positive and rewarding life.
