Drugs of Abuse

How Do You Know....If someone is addicted to drugs?

  • Attempts to quit using the drug or to "cut down" have failed
  • The drug is taken in a larger amount than what was intended for a longer period of time than was intended
  • A large amount of time is spent in activities necessary to get the drugs (criminal activities, finding a dealer, "doctor shopping," getting prescriptions filled)
  • Activities that were important (work-related, social, recreational) are cut back or given up for lack of time or interest due to drug use
  • Drug use is continued despite the fact that it is causing problems socially (with friends, family), psychologically or physically
  • Drug-tolerance is created and more drugs are needed to get the desired effects
  • Withdrawal symptoms are experienced as a result of not having the drug
  • Other drugs are used to avoid withdrawal or to relieve withdrawal
  • Inability to fulfill responsibilities due to being intoxicated (misses work, neglects children, neglects personal hygiene, etc.)
  • Frequently intoxicated when doing so is physically hazardous (driving, babysitting, etc.)
