Many people suffering from drug and alcohol addictions cannot admit or even recognize they have a problem until it is too late.  Social drinking is widely accepted in society, and the ability to communicate with loved ones through technology makes it easier than ever to hide illegal drug use from those who would normally recognize a problem.  Not everyone ends up in jail for a DUI because of their drinking problem, many end up dead.  Catching the early warning signs of addiction and seeking treatment as soon as possible helps prevent the devastating consequences of prolonged alcohol or drug abuse.  Drug Rehab Center Pittsburgh encourages you to always be on the lookout for simple things in regards to your loved ones, and to admit your problem to yourself when you find yourself dependent on a certain substance to feel normal or make it through the day.

Here is a short list of common signs a person with an addiction may exhibit.  It is important to remember that there are other warning signs, and if you sense someone you love is abusing drugs or alcohol, you should approach them in a calm and sensitive manner while encouraging them to seek help.

  • Using medication in ways not prescribed by a doctor
  • Frequently refilling prescriptions needlessly
  • Extreme changes in appearance and behavior
  • Sudden changes in interests, habits, and friends
