What If a Person Wants to Quit Using Marijuana?


Updated February 13, 2014

Question: What If a Person Wants to Quit Using Marijuana?
Answer: Up until a few years ago, it was hard to find treatment programs specifically for marijuana users.

Now researchers are testing different ways to help marijuana users abstain from drug use. There are currently no medications for treating marijuana addiction. Treatment programs focus on counseling and group support systems.

There are also a number of programs designed especially to help teenagers who are abusers. Family doctors are also a good source for information and help in dealing with adolescent marijuana problems.
