Causes & Signs of Drug Abuse

Alcoholism and drug addiction are characterized by a level of denial. It is difficult to properly diagnose the illness of addiction when one symptom of the disease is lying and deception of self and others. How can you tell if you or a loved one has a problem with chemical dependency? There are signs and symptoms to determine whether a physical addiction is present. Look for:

  • Consistent drug and alcohol use or repeated binge drinking or using.
  • The user requires more of the substance to achieve the same level of effect. This is called developing a tolerance.
  • Withdrawal symptoms including headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms, irritability and other symptoms in absence of the substance.

Avoid suffering by reaching out for medical help and treatment. Therapies are available to help facilitate a clean and sober life.

Getting Help in Richmond

In college towns, substance abuse often runs rampant. For teens and young adults, drinking alcohol and using drugs recreationally can provide a feeling of excitement and freedom. It is easy for young people to continue using until they teeter unwittingly into an addiction.

For others, addiction can start unintentionally through the misuse of medication. Often doctors prescribe medications to treat illness or injury. Opiates, stimulants, barbiturates and other types of mind and mood altering drugs are often misused as patients develop a tolerance to these powerful chemicals.

Addiction is no respecter of persons. Regardless of age, race, gender or other factors, addiction can strike anyone at any time. Reaching out for help at one of our Richmond, KY rehab centers is the best hope for a second chance.
