According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Michigan who used marijuana in the past year is 1,045,000. Of the 1,045,000, 153,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 353,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 539,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 596,000. 83,000 were ages 12 to 17, 202,000 were 18-25 and 312,000 were age 26 or older.
Marijuana use in Michigan is no longer the only way teenagers and young adults get high. Synthetic marijuana or also known as K2, Spice, etc, besides tobacco and alcohol is the second widely most used drug. Synthetic marijuana can cause seizures, violent behavior, hallucinations, heart attacks, permanent brain damage and even death. Lawmakers in Michigan are trying to make the sales of synthetic marijuana illegal but it has become very hard to do because the makers of synthetic marijuana are constantly changing the ingredients in it and have learned to get around the law.
Michigan Marijuana rehab and treatment centers will inform you that going to a marijuana treatment center is your only solution, that you have a disease, and that you are not held accountable for your behaviors and actions just for that reason alone. This is untrue and there has been research done that proves people can change their way of thinking and their behaviors. These things can be taught at a non-12 step program or a non-treatment program.
You have taken the time to seek help because of your "addiction" to Marijuana. You might be looking at rehab centers or treatment centers in Michigan and wonder what the best option for you is. Even if you do not choose Freedom Model's as your program, at least let us tell you one thing. You and only you can make change possible. You are not diseased, and your current circumstances do not need to dictate the course of your life from this moment forward. When you can call a Marijuana treatment center you will most likely talk to a caring person, but with the wrong message, being that addiction is a disease. Remember that no matter what you decide... you can change
