Family members, friends and other loved ones are often shocked beyond belief when an addict says: `it was so obvious that I was going through hell and needed help, but none of you could see’.
(PRWEB) November 01, 2014
In a new 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 listing “the 7 habits of highly addicted people.”
“Family members, friends and other loved ones are often shocked beyond belief when an addict says: `it was so obvious that I was going through hell and needed help, but none of you could see’,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Of course, while there's no anecdotal litmus test that conclusively certifies whether someone is an addict or not, there are indeed signs and symptoms that can point in that direction – and ultimately give family members and friends the clues they need to reach out, intervene, and change -- or even save -- the life of someone they love.”
According to Best Drug Rehabilitation, the 7 habits of highly addicted people are:
1. Suddenly withdrawing from loved ones without an explanation
2. Behaving in a strangely secretive manner
3. Abandoning hobbies and personal interests
4. Skipping school or work with little or no regard for the consequences
5. Burning through cash, but with little or nothing to show for it
6. Suddenly engaging in risky, thrill-seeking behavior
7. Neglecting their personal appearance
“Again, it bears repeating that none of these signs or symptoms – either on their own or collectively – conclusively determine that someone is an addict or is on their way to becoming one,” added Per Wickstrom. “Rather, the idea here is simply to give loved ones reason to pause, reflect and if necessary, ask questions or do some digging; not because they want to invade someone’s privacy, but on the contrary, because they love and care for them, and want to be sure that where there’s smoke, there isn’t fire as well.”
