Signs and symptoms of an addiction

There are many signs of an addiction that may go unnoticed in your daily life, or that you may dismiss, not knowing that they are in fact symptoms of a dangerous situation.

These symptoms can show up in various ways; in your social and work life, through your physical appearance, and through your mental health.

A few of the main signs of addiction are listed below. If you recognise any in your life, it may be time to reach out to us here at Rehab 4 Addiction to discuss your symptoms and see what your next steps should be.

Social/Work life

  • You are avoiding responsibilities that you used to perform with no problem
  • You are more withdrawn than usual with friends, family and even colleagues
  • You avoid large gatherings and events such as parties
  • You are avoiding these to instead go use the substance alone
  • You are lying to loved ones about your use of the substance
  • You have a secret stash of the substance hidden away somewhere

Physical appearance/health

  • Your physical appearance has recently and drastically changed, such as an unexpected loss of weight
  • You are having trouble sleeping or keeping a healthy sleep pattern, which is unusual for you
  • Your tolerance for the substance you use increases with each use, meaning that you have to up the dose each time to achieve the same desired effect
  • You experience withdrawal symptoms when you have not used the substance for a period of time (these can include nausea, headaches, fatigue, mood swings and dizziness)

Mental health

  • You are experiencing heightened symptoms of an existing mental health problem, such as depression or anxiety
  • You are lashing out at loved ones more than usual, and for seemingly no reason
  • You are much more on-edge and easily agitated than usual
  • All you seem to be able to think about is the substance, or when you next use of it will be
  • You struggle to cope with difficult feelings without reaching for the substance
  • You turn to the substance for comfort

When to reach out

It is imperative that you reach out to us here at Rehab 4 Addiction as soon as possible, this means getting in touch as soon as you believe you may be experiencing an addiction.

Being quick to get in contact with us means that there is a higher chance that we will be able to help.

The longer an addiction is left untreated, the more likely it is to inflict serious – and sometimes permanent or fatal – damage to your brain and body.

This can sometimes be irreversible and can cause lasting impacts on your mental and physical health that can affect you for the rest of your life.

To help stop this from becoming a reality, we implore clients to reach out sooner rather than later, before this damage becomes irreparable.

Will rehab work for me?

It is a common misconception that drug and alcohol rehabilitation is reserved for only the worst addictions or higher-class substance users.

This is far from the truth, and rehab can be for any and everyone who is experiencing some form of substance or behavioural addiction.

Though of course people are all different, and so is each addiction, rehab can work for anyone if it is given the chance to do so.

If you are willing to put in the effort and work that rehabilitation needs in order to provide you with the desired results, you are much more likely to succeed than if you were to be unwilling to participate at all.

This is because rehab is not a miracle ‘cure’ for addiction, but rather a tool to recover. Just like any other tool, it needs your help and cooperation to achieve its goals.
