Absolutely. Pharmaceutical quality medical cannabis acts directly into the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a bundle of neuroreceptors related to repetitive addictive behavior. Due to the influence that medical cannabis exerts on the ECS receptors, the urge for the addict to perpetuate the reward cycle related with their addiction is suppressed, thus reducing the sensation of craving. In addition, medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in lessening the intensity of withdrawal symptoms in substance abuse disorder, such as insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, muscle pain and tremors. Consequently, medical cannabis is efficacious not only in making the detox experience more tolerable, but it can also decrease the chance of relapse.
In 2018, the Greek government legalized the use of cannabis for medical purposes, and a year later, they lifted the ban on growing or producing it. The decision, published in the Government Gazette, declared the medical use of cannabis to be legal for patients with a doctor’s prescription. Although legal since 2018 it wasn’t until 2021 that Greek lawmakers approved a measure for organizations such as The Cannabis Project to obtain medical cannabis products for use in clinical settings.

Absolutely not. Medical cannabis is not administered through smoking because that would reinforce addicting behavioral patterns. Instead, pharmaceutical cannabis is dispensed through edibles, oils, or tablets.

There’s no set period that works for everyone when it comes to alcohol and drug rehab treatment. A 4-week residential program can help patients restore functional capacity while helping them develop continuing practices and skills to help them stay sober. At The Cannabis Project, graduates will receive continuing transitional support for recovery as part of our Aftercare plan whether there length of stay is 1 month or 90 days.
The success of our program lies in its ability to help clients stabilize, achieve and maintain abstinence from substances utilizing medical grade cannabis. In addition to Cannabis clients work on the development of self-awareness, self-clarity, and self-honesty. Our aftercare plan also supports the development of self-responsibility and self-accountability for one’s choices.
Although we limit cell phone usage during your detox phase, we encourage clients to bring their personal laptops and cell phones. We understand that giving up weeks at a time may be stressful on your family and work life, so we are one of the few facilities that allow clients to keep their electronic devices after detox. During group sessions & doctors’ appointments we ask that clients either silence their phones or keep them in their assigned rooms. Keep in mind that although our residence is fully equipped with Wi-Fi you may need to obtain a Greek Prepaid Sim if you would like to have 4G services while in Greece. One of our case managers will assist you with this once you arrive.
