No Drug is Impossible to Quit
When a substance roots itself in your or a family member’s life, the addiction can feel like it will last forever. Especially when it comes to some of the more addictive drugs, the irritability alone after not using some drugs for a few hours can make it seem like quitting the drug is an impossible task.
That’s not nearly the case.
We have seen all kinds of people with all kinds of addictions achieve sobriety at our Pompano Beach drug addiction treatment center. Some of the more addictive drugs we have helped patients overcome include:
- Synthetic opioids
- MDMA (ecstasy, molly)
- Crystal meth
- Benzodiazepines (benzos)
Common Signs of a Drug Addiction
If you are concerned that a spouse, child, sibling, or parent has developed a drug addiction, it can be hard to determine if it’s true or not. Still, there are a variety of symptoms that they may show that can help you better conclude if they need to go to rehab or another kind of drug addiction treatment. Keep an eye out for combinations of the following symptoms and behaviors:
- Isolating themself
- Build unhealthy relationships with others who show signs of addiction
- Irrational behavior and angst after spending a long time with the family
- Financial problems
- Lapses in judgement
- Responsibilities take a back seat
Note: even if someone shows all of these signs, that is not a guaranteed indication that they are addicted to drugs – these are provided to show common symptoms. There are no definitive symptoms of addiction other than frequent use and abuse of a substance.
