Help For Your Loved Ones

If you’re reading this page, chances are that you’ve noticed some changes in your friend or loved one. Drug addiction, also called “substance use disorder,” is considered to be a chronic, relapsing brain disorder. It is a disease, one that affects people of all ages, socioeconomic statuses, and religious backgrounds. Fortunately, with the proper care, this condition can be treated. Read on to learn the signs of drug and alcohol addiction.

One of the most underestimated consequences of substance abuse is what it can do to the family of the addicted. If your loved one is addicted, one of the most important things you can do is work to understand them without being judgemental. People use substances for many different reasons— from simple curiosity, as a way to have a good time, peer pressure, as a coping mechanism for emotional distress, and so many other reasons. Typically, drug abuse and addiction are less about how often a person uses substances, but rather the reasons why people turn to drugs in the first place. To help your loved ones, you must help them understand they need professionals. We understand that this is often much easier said than done.

Know the Symptoms

Signs of a Substance Use Disorder

There are a few core symptoms associated with drug and alcohol abuse. Someone with these issues may exhibit just a few of the below items, or they could behave in ways that are beyond what’s listed here. It’s important to know that substance use ranges from mild to severe, and that it’s never too late (or too early) to get help. If you believe your loved one is struggling with addiction, we encourage you to contact Concise Recovery today.

  1. Cravings – Experiencing an intense, unmanageable urge to use. May begin to behave in uncharacteristic ways in order to obtain their drug of choice: stealing, lying, and doing whatever it takes to use again.
  2. Withdrawal Symptoms – Having a painful reaction when they go too long without drugs or alcohol. These can range from flu-like symptoms, to anxiety, to headaches, and even seizures.
  3. Tolerance – Requiring more and more of the substance to achieve the same effect, or increasing the dosage taken over time. This happens as the body builds a resistance to the drug.
  4. Dangerous Use – Using a medication in a way that it has not been prescribed (for longer than required, or at higher dosages than recommended). This also applies to using illegal drugs, particularly in ways that endanger others. Ex: drinking while driving, consuming substances while swimming or in risky situations.
  5. Lack of Control – Being unable to stop or slow substance use, even when they have expressed a desire to quit. This happens in spite of repeated attempts to stop using.
  6. Failing to Meet Obligations – Dropping the ball at home and at work. This can include deteriorating job performance and missing family events, or otherwise disappointing loved ones by failing to prioritize them and their needs.
  7. Becoming Distant and Neglecting Relationships – Continuing to put their substance use before friends and family, even at the expense of lifelong relationships. Drugs or alcohol become the most important thing in their life.
  8. Using in Spite of Consequences – Compulsively seeking and using their substance of choice, even when severe physical or personal issues begin to appear as a result. They may lose their jobs, push away friends and family, and begin to experience worsening health problems, but will continue using.

My family had done an intervention on me and gave me an ultimatum, to go get help or to be on the streets. I chose to get help not thinking anything would change and just to get my family off my back. And boy I couldn't have been more wrong, I have a life worth living today thanks to Concise Recovery. I will never go back!
