Sometimes, all it takes is someone saying: `I think you’re in trouble, and I’d like to help’ to not just change a life – it can save one.

In its latest blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is highlighting 12 signs that someone may be addicted to drugs.
“Most addicts are extremely good at hiding their addiction,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, what they fail to understand is that addiction never reaches a plateau. Addicts constantly have to feed their addiction, and even if they have the money to do this, sooner or later their body will simply be unable to withstand the abuse. It’s my hope that our latest blog post helps concerned family members and friends be proactive and ask questions before a tragedy occurs – not after, when it could be too late.”
According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, the 12 signs that someone may be addicted to drugs include:
1. They suddenly start to neglect their responsibilities in a key area of their life – at home, work, with friends, and so on.
2. They no longer derive any enjoyment from their hobbies, often abandoning them altogether.
3. They can no longer maintain healthy, positive relationships – especially with people who they once deeply cared for.
4. They have unexplained financial troubles that typically involve selling personal items, borrowing money, and so on.
5. They experience rapid weight changes – either losing or gaining.
6. Their clothing and/or body gives off an unusual odor, which they often attempt to ask with excessive use of perfumes, colognes, etc.
7. Their personal hygiene standards fall.
8. They have coordination difficulties that affect how they walk, talk or even drive.
9. They experience rapid mood swings.
10. They become ultra-secretive about otherwise ordinary, mundane aspects of their life.
11. They suddenly start taking more risks and acting recklessly.
12. They begin having legal troubles and brushes with the law.
“Obviously, these signs are by no means conclusive symptoms that someone may be an addict,” added Per Wickstrom. “What’s more, the idea here isn’t to make anyone paranoid, or believe that someone who might suddenly start wearing more perfume is hiding an addiction, or someone who decides to take up hand gliding is doing so because of some drug-induced sense of invulnerability. These signs are merely possible clues that may compel a loved one to dig a little deeper. I’ve lost count of how many former addicts have told me that they spent months -- even years -- trying to get people to notice that something just wasn’t right. Sometimes, all it takes is someone saying: `I think you’re in trouble, and I’d like to help’ to not just just change a life – it can save one.”
Family members and other loved ones who are concerned that someone they care about may be suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, are urged to call a local accredited and certified Rehab Facility for further information.
