Signs and symptoms of drug addiction and abuse

The more drug use begins to affect and control a person's life, the more likely it is that he or she has a drug problem. Unfortunately, substance abusers are often the last ones to recognize their own symptoms of dependence and addiction. If you suspect that a friend or loved one is abusing drugs, it's important to remember that drug abusers often try to conceal their symptoms and downplay their problem. But there are a number of warning signs you can look for:

  • Inability to relax or have fun without doing drugs.
  • Sudden changes in work or school attendance and quality of work or grades.
  • Frequently borrowing money, selling possessions, or stealing items from employer, home, or school.
  • Angry outbursts, mood swings, irritability, manic behavior, or overall attitude change.
  • Talking incoherently or making inappropriate remarks.
  • Deterioration of physical appearance and grooming.
  • Wearing sunglasses and/or long sleeve shirts frequently or at inappropriate times.
  • No longer spending time with friends who don't use drugs and/or associating with known users.
  • Engaging in secretive or suspicious behaviors, such as making frequent trips to the restroom, basement, or other isolated areas where drug use would be undisturbed.
  • Talking about drugs all the time and pressuring others to use.
  • Expressing feelings of exhaustion, depression, and hopelessness.
  • Using drugs first thing in the morning.


  • "I was out of control and headed for disaster. I needed help but was denying there was even a problem that I couldn't handle on my own. The counselor came to my home, worked with me and I was in treatment later that day. The intervention saved my life. It's over one year later and my life is better than ever, thank you!"
    - Liz – San Francisco, CA
  • "Addictive Behavior Management has helped me get through treatment and stay in recovery. Getting healthy can be more difficult than imagined after being addicted. The counselors worked with me and now I'm back in school and enjoying life. Thank you!"
    - Lisa – New York, NY
  • "Our son was agressive and manipulative, we couldn't even start to talk to him about his problem. He was in some legal trouble and we feared he would end up in jail or worse. The counselor came to our house after we set up a treatment plan and then drove him into the treatment center that night. We could not have helped our son without the intervention."
    - Phoenix, AZ
  • "My husband is the best thing that ever happened to me and is the loving father of our three daughters. I love him and knew something had to be done, our marriage and household was unraveling. I tried to get him help on my own, but he wouldn't get real treatment. The intervention helped me understand what it takes to get someone you love into treatment and save a marriage. Thank you for all your help."
    - Lori – Orange County, CA
