How to Tell that You or Someone You Love Needs Help
Substance abuse is, in many ways, different from addiction. A person with a substance abuse problem, for one, can quit. They can change their unhealthy behaviors. That said, a person with an addiction cannot. It’s a disease. That means that even if you or someone you care about wants to quit or even stop, they can’t. Addiction is one of the major reasons that folks come to our facility. Other signs include an increasing tolerance, worsening quality of life due to pursuing the addiction, a lack of control and/or responsibility, cravings you can’t control, and so much more.
