Drug addiction is scary. It effects all aspects of the addict’s life including finances, health and relationships. It is incredibly devastating when a loved one is battling a drug addition, especially because their use is not only hurting them, but also hurting those around them. This dangerous addiction can lead to a number of symptoms that can negatively impact your loved one, many of which include the following:
- Unpredictability while under the influence
- Putting themselves in dangerous situations to get or use drugs
- Stealing money, prescription medications or household items
- Constant lying and deception, unreliable and untrustworthy
- Trouble with relationships, work or the law
- Spending a great deal of time thinking about using and/or actually using
- Attempting to quit using with little success
- Frequent, unexplainable mood swings
- Having difficulty focusing on projects or tasks
- Isolating oneself from others
Even though drug addiction might seem too powerful to overcome, it is treatable. With the proper support and drug addiction intervention, you and your loved ones can counteract the effects of drug abuse in your lives, all while helping the addict.
