Little empirical information is established about synthetic marijuana, including the treatment of related disorders. Similar to organic marijuana, chronic synthetic use can lead to a variety of functional impairments, including diminished academic and workplace productivity and performance. Many traditional approaches emphasize treating co-occurring disorders separately, but the present case examines concurrent treatment for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed., DSM-IV) Synthetic Marijuana Dependence and Generalized Anxiety Disorder by using Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Relapse Prevention (RP) in conjunction with an adapted form of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). A model for treatment and its potential effects are discussed.
