The fear that someone you love may have a drug or alcohol dependency problem can be a terrifying and isolating feeling, and you most likely have a host of questions about identifying and addressing the problem.
Below are some common warning signs drug users may display as they spiral toward addiction. Symptoms can vary based on the drugs being abused and it is important to remember that these behaviors do not necessarily mean that a drug problem exists; in fact, these behaviors could also be connected to other problems, including depression.
If you are concerned someone you love has a drug problem, the best thing to do is seek support and advice from a professional to help confirm if a problem exists.
As painful as it may be to admit that someone you love has a drug problem, your recognition and involvement could be the first step to get them on the path to recovery. Professional support is available to help you address the problem and identify appropriate treatment options.

We believe that personal connections are an important part of the recovery process and strive to assure significant others and families feel nurtured and connected.
