Cannabis / Marijuana/ Hashish addiction and its treatment at Healing Door Rehabilitation center Islamabad, Pakistan

Charass is the name for the cannabis plant’s black resin. To prepare it, the flower buds of the plant are rubbed in the palm for long periods. Marijuana is made using the plant’s leaves and stems. There is a slight distinction between charas and hashish,  Charas is produced using the plant’s resin whereas Hashish is created using dead, harvested buds.

Charas is a hashish traditionally produced in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and India. Charass and Hashish are one of the most abused drugs in Pakistan.

Healing Door Rehabilitation Center is aiming to raise awareness about the dangers of these drugs and help those who are addicted to them. Assistance is available here to people from all around Pakistan, including Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Lahore, and Peshawar.

Treatment of Cannabis /Marijuana and Hashish addiction at Healing Door 

Hashish and cannabis addiction treatment programs and procedures are structured similarly to those for alcoholism and other substance dependencies. The first step is detoxification and withdrawal management,  Depending on the circumstances, the individual’s prior drug usage, and the treatment needs, evidence-based therapies like Twelve Step facilitation, cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and other scientifically valid approaches can be helpful for addiction treatment alternatives.

There are essentially three types of treatment, and they are as follows:

  • Detoxification.
  • behavioral and cognitive therapy.
  • Medicine-based treatment.

In addition, there are other types of care facilities, such as

  • Counseling services are available outside of a hospital setting.

At Healing Door, we help people overcome their drug dependencies through a combination of medically supervised detox and therapy approaches backed by reliable research. We specialize in creating effective, individualized programs of care that provide patients with the greatest opportunity for long-term recovery.

Withdrawal therapy

Several drug classes, such as depressants, stimulants, and opioids, have distinct withdrawal symptoms and treatment strategies. Substituting alternative drugs like methadone, buprenorphine, or buprenorphine plus naloxone for the addictive one is an option during detox.

For patients, the withdrawal era is the most important phase. Expert therapists and psychologists at HDRC stay with each patient until he has made a full recovery. Since the institution maintains high standards for its food and cleanliness, as well as creating an environment that is comfortingly familiar to patients, the rehabilitation center is a great place to recover in peace.
