You Have Health Problems Due to Abusing Drugs or Alcohol

Drug and alcohol abuse does not come without consequences. Unfortunately, these consequences often affect your health. If your doctors have expressed that you have health issues due to abusing alcohol, it is time to seek professional help.


Your Friends and Family Have Voiced Their Concerns

If the people closest to you have noticed a difference in your lifestyle or appearance, listen. It is often harder to recognize your problem while you’re living it.


You Have Experienced Withdrawal Symptoms

If you have attempted to stop abusing substances, and in the process, have experienced withdrawal symptoms, this is a clear sign of addiction. A rehab center can help you with withdrawal symptoms. A detox program will help you through this difficult time, and help you stay sober for good.
