Marijuana is the most commonly abused drug by individuals between the ages of 18 and 25, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

While the latter is not always recommended, it is appropriate for marijuana addiction due to the lack of physical addiction and withdrawal symptoms. Inpatient treatment can also be an option for individuals that would better benefit from the structure of residential care.
