Every Brain Matters Supports Recovery

Today’s world is embracing more marijuana use while families like ours pay a heavy price.

We acknowledge that the general public and many support groups don’t understand the true and devastating impacts of marijuana.  So many times, it’s hard for us to share honestly how today’s more potent, more dangerous marijuana has affected our lives and families.  So we respectfully invite you to an online group, Every Brain Matters Support Community. We recognize the need to find freedom from marijuana. We understand and encourage healing and growth in response to marijuana use, addiction (cannabis use disorder), cannabis induces-psychosis, and toxic effects like cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. This includes people who have an addiction to marijuana and who are in recovery, their families, and the families/friends of people who’ve been harmed or lost their lives as a direct or indirect result of marijuana use.  Marijuana harms also may include include suicide, other mental illnesses, homicide, violent crimes, DUIs, and other incidents of injury or trauma resulting in harm or death, overdoses, where marijuana was the only drug, a gateway, companion, and/or relapse drug. 

This group will not discuss policies, politics, specific religious beliefs, or ask for donations. We encourage members to embrace their faith while being cognizant of others who do not have the same view.  We are not a replacement for any program or meeting but a supplement and an adjunct. We encourage everyone to continue to work their current recovery program or find one to join as soon as possible.  We are not equipped to give medical advice, but participants will have the opportunity to share resources and techniques that have helped them.  We understand there are different pathways to recovery.

If you are looking for an Advocate group to educate about the harms of marijuana and influence change or policies, please email us at info@everybrainmatters.org.

We respect confidentiality, the feelings, and privacy of those attending our meeting.
