CBD Treatments Now Available at Our Recovery Clinic in Oceanside, CA
In a recent clinical study, CBD is shown to be an important and effective part of recovery treatments.
CBD has been seen as effective in many areas of drug addiction rehabilitation. And now, the use of non-intoxicating CBD (Cannabidiol) in rehab treatments, has taken an important step in the fight against opioid and heroin addiction.
Mount Sinai Hospital in New York has announced the discovery of an important treatment option of CBD in substance abuse rehabilitation: a reduction of cue-induced cravings and anxiety in individuals with a history of heroin abuse.
“People trying to avoid resurrecting their addiction also must grapple with reminders of it: the sights, sounds and people who were part of their addictive behaviors. These cues can trigger a craving for the drug, creating anxiety that steers them straight back into addiction for relief.”
Mindful Rejuvenation, a holistic substance abuse outpatient facility located in Oceanside CA, is one of the few rehab clinics in Southern California to make CBD available for integration into recovery treatment plans.
“When combined with our holistic treatment plans for those struggling with drug addictions, CBD offers a substantial advantage for individuals who are suffering from substance addictions and need extra help for them to alleviate stress and break cue-induced drug cravings” stated Jacqueline Ortega, the founder of Mindful Rejuvenation. “This provides us with the ability to design truly integrated treatment plans for our patients, which are perfect for short long-term recoveries.”
Ms. Ortega points out that CBD is a safe and versatile addition to a range of recovery solutions available to facilities today. “CBD, a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, fits exceptionally well with our treatment plans that particularly effective with individuals who are suffering from co-occurring mental health issues, such as stress, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder.”
“The researchers looked at 42 drug-abstinent men and women — ages 21 to 65 — with heroin use disorder. Half of the group, who had recently stopped using heroin, received CBD — 400 mg or 800 mg once daily — and the other half received a placebo. Participants were then exposed to neutral and drug-related cues during the course of three sessions: immediately following administration, 24 hours after CBD or placebo administration, and seven days after the third and final daily CBD or placebo administration.
They found that those who received CBD had significantly reduced drug cravings. They also found that the participants reported less anxiety when looking at pictures of people using drugs. Moreover, CBD seemed to have a lasting effect — the drug continued to reduce cravings and anxiety for seven days, well beyond the time the drug is expected to be present in the body.”
“The specific effects of CBD on cue-induced drug craving and anxiety are particularly important in the development of addiction therapeutics because environmental cues are one of the strongest triggers for relapse and continued drug use.”
