Angry looking young woman ready for substance abuse treatmentWhether you think you need substance abuse treatment or you’re watching a loved one spiral downward, it can be tough to admit it’s time for help. People who are struggling with addiction often have to reach rock bottom before recognizing the problem, while those around them may be enablers without knowing it.

When is it time to seek help?

When Substance Abuse Treatment is Necessary

It may be alcohol that has you in its grip. You might be abusing prescription painkillers. Someone you love may be struggling with heroin addiction. Whatever the substance, it’s crucial that you break free from your addiction before it ruins your life and the lives of the people around you.

Common signs that you may need substance abuse treatment include:

  • Building up a tolerance and having to use more of the drug to experience the same high
  • Lying about or hiding how much you drink or use drugs
  • Having legal troubles related to your addiction
  • Missing work or social activities due to drug/alcohol abuse
  • Being in denial about how much you use
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the drug
  • Having financial and/or relationship difficulties

Some people think that anyone who’s addicted to a substance is homeless or out of work, but that’s not always the case. While someone struggling with addiction can definitely end up on the street, it takes a while for them to reach that point. Until then, they may be able to conceal their substance abuse as they hold down a job and interact with their families.

However, addiction will take its toll. The physical, psychological and mental effects will eventually prove to be too much. A person can either get help or suffer the serious consequences, including a broken family, job loss, jail time, severe illness, or death.

Instead of letting things continue to spiral out of control, consider getting the right substance abuse treatment before it’s too late.
