Four Signs You Need To Head To Detox and Substance Abuse Recovery

1Do you have a loved one who may need to seek treatment for alcohol and drug abuse? Are you unsure as to whether or not you are making the right choice on making that call? Here are 4 warning signs that someone you love may need some kind of substance abuse treatment and recovery program.

1) Does your loved one spend a huge amount of time during the day thinking about their drink or drug of choice? Do they spend whatever financial resources they have to acquire what they need? Do the wake up each morning looking for a drink? Does the person spend a large portion of the day at work thinking about “getting high or drunk” that night?

He or she may have a problem.

2) Is your loved one’s mental and physical health suffering because of their problem? Do they no longer enjoy the things they used to, choosing to spend their leisure time drinking and/or taking drugs? Does your loved one suffer from depression, fatigue, and agitation a lot? Does this person find the only comfort they have to relieve these symptoms is through drinking and/or drugs?

He or she may have a problem.

3) Does your loved one “bail out” of events with the family, choosing to spend their night’s closed off with drugs and/or drinking? What about friends? Has your loved one gone from having a lot of really good friends to hanging around with “fair weather” friends? This is when he or she only hangs out with “the bad crowd”.

4)Your loved one may also be taking excessive amounts of drugs and alcohol to get “high”. This is when your loved one has to take excessive amounts each time in order to recapture the feeling they felt the first time.

He or she may have a problem.

A person can only get help when they want to get help. Try to talk to someone about this and get some help for your loved one. It is not too late to save someone from that dark road.
