When to Seek Help

If you’re worried about your own drug or alcohol use, here are some of the warning signs to look for:

  • Often taking more of the substance for a longer period than intended
  • Ongoing desire or unsuccessful efforts to reduce use
  • Great deal of time spent to obtain, use, or recover from substance
  • Craving the substance
  • Failure to fulfill obligations at work, home, or school as a result of continued use
  • Continued use despite ongoing relationship problems caused or worsened by use
  • Giving up or reducing social, occupational, or recreational activities because of use
  • Repeated use in physically dangerous situations (like drinking or using other drugs while driving)
  • Continued use despite ongoing physical or mental health problems caused or worsened by use
  • Developing tolerance (feeling less effect from the substance with continued use)
  • Withdrawal symptoms if substance is reduced or discontinued

There are many signs, both physical and behavioral, that may indicate drug use in a friend or family member. Each drug has its own unique manifestations, but there are some general indications that a person is using drugs:

  • Sudden change in behavior
  • Mood swings; irritable and grumpy and then suddenly happy and bright
  • Withdrawal from family members
  • Careless about personal grooming
  • Loss of interest in hobbies, sports and other favorite activities
  • Changed sleeping pattern; up at night and sleeping during the day
  • Red or glassy eyes
