Signs & Symptoms

 

Need Help With Alcohol or Drug Addiction?

Sometimes the answer to “Is it Addiction?” is not always clear. Often it’s a combination of signs and symptoms that will help you recognize the need to consider professional treatment. Individuals do not have to use drugs or drink alcohol every day to have a problem.  Below is a listing of common drug and alcohol abuse symptoms that can help you identify the signs of addiction.  Please remember that even if a person shows some of the symptoms, it does not necessarily mean that they have a drug or alcohol addiction.  The presence of some of these symptoms could relate to stress, depression or other health or behavioral problems which may or may not be related to substance abuse.  Let us help you by answering your questions.  Call us today or make an appointment to speak with an addiction professional.  Call 1-800-225-4673.
