Recognizing your own addiction isn’t always easy

Drug addiction is a progressive illness that often will require intervention and treatment to change the addict’s pattern of behavior. If left untreated, addiction can lead to psychological problems like severe depression or other consequences such as incarceration and even death. It is important that one is able to identify drug addiction when it arises to ensure that treatment is found as soon as possible. Some common signs for drug addiction to be aware of include:

  • Neglecting responsibilities like work, paying bills, or family obligations
  • Isolating from family and friends
  • Dramatic weight loss
  • Decline in physical hygiene
  • Erratic and unexplainable changes in mood
