Recognizing a Drug Abuse Problem in Your Loved One
How do you know when it’s time to seek treatment for someone you care about in Tyler, TX? How can you tell if they really are just tired or not feeling well as they say – or if what you’re seeing is an active drug addiction?
Each drug brings with it its own effects and those will manifest differently in different users depending upon how much they use, how often, what other substances they use at the same time, and their own physiology. Drug tests can help you be certain, but if you find illicit substances among your loved one’s possessions or know that drug abuse is a problem for them and believe you see the signs of addiction, it may be time to seek help.
