Detoxification processes are very helpful in the removal
of other drugs from a person's system. While a marijuana detox
is a more mild process than a detox from a "harder"
drug, it still serves a very essential purpose. A person that
has been using marijuana consistently over a long period of
time has most likely forgotten what it feels like for his/her
system to be free of the substance. Many times a marijuana
detox is productive enough for a drug abuser to begin to think
life without drugs may be possible.
By reducing the levels of unfamiliar substances within a
person's body, the natural functioning of the body is reaffirmed
and a more comprehensive, successful process of recovery can
begin to take place. Just as an ex-tobacco smoker feels as
though he/she has received new lungs, the marijuana smoker
has a similar feeling because of marijuana build up in his/her
lungs and body. A marijuana detox begins the process of rebuilding
the lining in the lungs and helps repair the airways that
have been damaged by marijuana smoke.
Marijuana, commonly known as a "gateway" drug,
often leads to problems with other drugs such as methamphetamines,
cocaine and heroin. Marijuana is also used in combination
with alcohol and can create problems if the user remains untreated.
These drugs also require a medical detox in order to attain
a physical cleansing before the recovery process can begin.
