On June 5, Governor Doug Ducey declared a statewide health emergency in reaction to the growing number of deaths from opioid overdoses in Arizona. In response to Arizona’s opioid problem, a new Scottsdale rehab center is using cannabis to treat people who are addicted to painkillers, ABC 15 reports. Blue Door Rehabs is said to be the first and only medical clinic on the planet to integrate organic treatments(cannabis )with conventional treatments to detox clients from painkillers. Blue Door uses cannabis pills and transdermal spots to relieve queasiness and other opioid withdrawal signs as well as cannabis derivatives, such as cannabidiol( CBD), to help treat addicts’underlying issues like stress and anxiety. Blue Door does not motivate patients to smoke cannabis because they cannot accurately keep track of the dose, and the patients would need to qualify for a medical cannabis card(currently, opiate dependency is not a certifying condition for medical cannabis in Arizona). Instead, Blue Door utilizes specifically-dosed pills and transdermals. The rehab center also uses a traditional outpatient rehabilitation treatment choice.
