How do I know my loved one is suffering from an addiction?

It can be extremely hard to decipher whether or not your loved one is in fact experiencing an addiction, especially since you are not the one feeling most of the effects of the drugs or alcohol.

However, there are ways that you can notice the signs of addiction through their physical appearance, the way they react to certain things, and their social behaviour.

Some of the main symptoms of a drug and alcohol addiction are listed below, so ask yourself the following:

  • Has my loved one’s appearance changed drastically recently? Have they unexpectedly lost weight or are struggling to sleep more than usual?
  • Does my loved one appear to experience withdrawal symptoms when they are away from the substance they use? (Withdrawal symptoms can include nausea, headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, mood swings and dizziness)
  • Has my loved one’s tolerance for the substance they use increased to my knowledge since their first use? If so, has this increased further each time they use it? Do they now use a much higher dose each time in order to reach the same desired effect?
  • Is my loved one more on-edge, angrier and easily agitated than usual?
  • Does my loved one struggle to think of much else besides their use of the substance, such as when they will next get the chance to use it?
  • Is my loved one experiencing heightened symptoms of an existing mental health problem (such as depression or anxiety)?
  • Is my loved one lashing out at me or others more than usual?
  • Does my loved one hide the substance away from me and others?
  • Does my loved one attempt to keep their substance use a secret, or are generally secretive about how much/how often they use?
  • Is my loved one more withdrawn in social and work situations than they are usually?
  • Has my loved one abandoned any responsibilities in their social or work life? If so, have they neglected them in order to use the substance?

If you answered yes to a few of these questions, it may be time to consider reaching out for professional help on behalf of your loved one.

How can I help my loved one?

Once you have noticed one or a few of the signs listed above in the behaviour of your loved one, it is time to get in contact with us here at Rehab 4 Addiction.

We do not recommend interfering with your loved one yourself or attempting to coerce them into accepting treatment.

Denial can be a powerful thing, and trying to stop it in its tracks may cause your loved one to spiral out of control, and fall deeper into drug and alcohol abuse as a result.

The safest and most effective option for both you and your loved one is our professional intervention services.

All of our professional interventionists have experienced some form of addiction themselves in the past, so they know better than anyone what their loved one is feeling right now.

This makes them the most equipped to handle your loved one and to calmly coach them into admission.

They are able to carry out interventions with the utmost understanding and empathy, whilst also remaining 100% professional and using the best, tried-and-tested techniques.

If you do choose this option, the only thing you will need to do at this time to help us and the interventionists is been open and honest about your loved one’s situation.

We will need to know details about the substance or substances they have used/are currently using, and other aspects of their personality and addiction.

This will help us understand our clients better and decide the best way to approach and guide them.

Your loved one’s life could be in your hands, so don’t waste any time and call us today on 0800 140 4690.
