Northpoint Recovery Treatment Center Reveals How Long Marijuana Stays in the Body

Boise, Idaho — Northpoint Recovery, an addiction treatment center in Boise, recently published a blog post that sheds light on how long marijuana can stay in the human body before it becomes undetectable. The post also lists factors that should be considered before labeling someone as having a marijuana addiction.

The marijuana detection information is particularly crucial for those who need to undergo drug tests for various purposes. According to the post, several factors affect how long marijuana stays in the body. Some of these include how the drug is consumed, how often it's consumed, and the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels in the drug. Marijuana may be stored in fatty areas where it can remain for days, weeks, or even months. This is primarily why Northpoint Recovery reminds their community a positive drug test does not equate to recent marijuana consumption.

There are different types of marijuana testing methods, including urine, blood, saliva, breast milk, and hair follicle tests. It's important to note t these tests do not always reflect accurate results. In fact, they can be easily manipulated and tampered with. Human error may also lead to a false positive, and there are many other factors that can affect the results of a marijuana drug test.

Northpoint Recovery emphasizes that the consumption of marijuana for medical purposes and other acceptable reasons should not be condemned. It is also worth mentioning that marijuana is legal for all purposes in some states in the U.S. and other countries. Should a person test positive in a marijuana drug test, this does not necessarily mean they suffer from drug addiction.

However, the center said, the over-consumption of marijuana should not be normalized, either. Those who consume the drug recreationally should assess whether it affects their relationships and daily lives. For example, spending too much money to buy marijuana may be a sign of addiction. Some may also experience social problems that can lead to poor performance in school or at work.

Northpoint Recovery strongly encourages people struggling with marijuana addiction to consult with a health professional as soon as possible. The recovery center is always ready to help those struggling with substance use disorder so they can get back on their feet.

In a 5-Star Google review, one former patient said, “I was recently in Northpoint for alcohol. The detox was hard but thanks to the wonderful nurses, they made it a lot easier. If you are looking for a place that is helpful and thankful for having you there, I would recommend Northpoint Recovery. The techs push you to be the best you can be. They coach you with things to change and help you along.”
