Dependence and Addiction: Tell-Tale Signs

Addiction issues affect individuals in various ways. No two people respond to a certain drug in an identical fashion. Even so, the signs of addiction which an individual exhibits while addicted are fairly easy to spot if you’re on your guard. These signs include:

  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain
  • Abrupt behavioral changes, mood swings, or irritability
  • Neglect of once-beloved hobbies and pastimes
  • Sudden shift in friends and social circles
  • Mysterious errands, disappearances, or habits
  • Secretive or dodgy behavior
  • Emotional distance or obliviousness
  • Poor hygiene, neglect of personal appearance or grooming

One of the benefits of rehab is that it re-teaches an individual how to live an upstanding and well-rounded life. The things which the individual neglected in favor of their drug of choice—hobbies, socialness, hygiene, productive personal habits—will enable the afflicted individual to put themselves back on their feet. Rehab provides clients with psychological and social tools with which to insulate themselves against relapse in the future.
