Medical Detox from Marijuana
The need for medical detoxification or “detox” for marijuana withdrawal symptoms will be reviewed by our physicians and determined on a case by case basis. In general, we cannot guarantee a patient will be a sober admission unless they are 10 days clean from all drugs and alcohol.

The symptoms of marijuana use often include a great deal of neurological issues. Because the active chemical in marijuana is stored in the fat cells, the detoxing process can take longer to complete than other drugs. Some symptoms may take up to three months to fade away, but they are all temporary.
Common symptoms include headaches, depression, insomnia, and rage. There may also be a temporary loss of concentration immediately after beginning detoxification. However, the initial detoxing process allows our patients to be monitored and guided through withdrawal with compassion and understanding.
Patient care is provided by trained medical professionals who administer medicines to counteract alcohol or drug withdrawal symptoms, attend to nutritional repair, and evaluate the patient’s ongoing needs after detox. Schick Shadel's on sight medical staff is available to patients 24 hours a day, ensuring that their needs are met at any time.
Schick Shadel Hospital is a national leader in the medical treatment of addiction. Medical research indicates that counter conditioning, or reeducating the memory associated with the sight, smell, and taste of marijuana, is a medically effective way to reduce the cravings for it.
