Drug Abuse: Signs and Symptoms of a Drug Addict


By: Samantha Santo

Drug addiction is one of the hardest diseases to fight. It is also one of the hardest diseases to diagnose. If you believe someone you know may be a drug addict, keep a look out for these specific signs:
1. Drug addicts tend to lie and make excuses for everything just to protect their addiction
2. They stop participating in the activities they once loved before the drug addiction began
3. Addiction is expensive so drug addicts always seem to lack money
If the person you believe to be a drug addict exhibits any of these signs, it may be beneficial to have them contact a mental health professional and receive therapy for the drug addiction.  If you are in Bergen County, New Jersey, feel free to call 201-368-3700 to make an appointment with one of our own therapists, counselors, psychologists or psychiatrists.
