Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Are you or someone you care about struggling with a drug or alcohol problem? Substance abuse and addiction is widespread and affects millions of people from all walks of life. It is often very difficult for the user to stop on their own, leaving them with feelings of shame, isolation and even depression.
How do I know if I have a drug or alcohol problem?
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Do you need to use drugs or alcohol to relax or feel better?
- Do your friends or family members complain or worry about your drug or alcohol use?
- Do you hide or lie about your drug or alcohol use?
- Do you feel like you can't stop, even if you wanted to?
- Have you ever drank or used more than you planned to?
- Do you need to use more to experience the same effects you used to with smaller amounts?
- Do you spend a lot of time using and thinking about drugs or alcohol?
- Do you continue to use drugs or alcohol, despite knowing it's hurting you?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, you may have a drug or alcohol problem.
