This drug (Dagga or Cannabis) also known as marijuana is not surprisingly one of the most commonly known and frequently used drugs on the planet. It’s become almost sociably acceptable and in general the news around cannabis can be miss-leading and confusing. Cannabis or Dagga Addiction simply does exist, let’s dismiss that myth that it’s harmless immediately. I, like many others have often heard that Cannabis is “non addictive” but I know from my own experience, working for many years in the field, that this is not the case. It is addictive to addicts as anything can be and is regularly causing a number of mental health problems when used long term. Although I don’t subscribe to it being the ‘gateway drug’ to other addictions that it has been touted as, it is clear that any addictive substance or behaviour has an effect and is likely to lessen the inhibitions of the person thus making them more likely to try other things so I believe it is one of a number of ways of a person accelerating their addiction problems and substance use. This is where the decision to ‘nip it in the bud’ (no pun intended!) and look for specialist Cannabis Addiction Treatment (Dagga Addiction Treatment) becomes necessary to tackle it before it inevitably continues to get worse. Personally, I don’t believe it is the gateway drug that many claim, I believe it is one of many gateway drugs, including the even more sociably acceptable ‘alcohol‘. The problem is that it is so prevalent in all communities in Cape Town, South Africa and the world. That, coupled with misconceptions about the harm it causes has made it a routine part of life for many people. I believe that like any other drug, it does not necessarily cause a problem all the time and some people are able to use successfully for a while, stop and not progress to a full on addiction. I am very wary of the drug, just as I am with alcohol use, if used by someone who is susceptible to addiction and as it is used so widely, logic dictates that new addicts are being discovered earlier, often by the ages of 13 or 14. I get a lot of calls from parents of 18-20 year olds who have been using for many years so I would suggest this is a problem that must be dealt with sooner rather than later. If you can get access to quality Cannabis Rehab in Cape Town (Dagga Rehab in Cape Town) then the reasons for use can be explored, other issues addressed and hopefully, a decision made to live life free from addiction.
