What is Addiction?

Understanding addiction is the first step to being able to get you and your loved ones the help you need to get sober and stay sober.

Who Is An Addict?

Addiction is not just what we see on television or on the big screen. Your ideas of homelessness and deteriorating skin belong in those places, but not always in real life. Addicts are teachers, mothers, uncles, husbands, and friends. They clean our cars, go to sporting events, and close million dollar deals. They can be anywhere at any time.

It is sometimes hard to make the distinction between using and addiction. There are signs that are easily detectable and these can include:

  • Becoming over or under active
  • Weight loss
  • Change in eating habits
  • Missing school or work
  • Sleep problems
  • And isolation
Though these signs make it easier to spot an addiction, sometimes there are no signs at all. Addiction thrives on secrecy which makes it difficult to decipher whether you or a loved one has a problem.

How to Approach the Subject of Addiction

If you suspect someone you love is an addict but do not know how to touch on the subject, there are a few approaches you can take. The most straight-forward approach is to simply ask. Though addiction thrives on secrecy, the person who is using may want help but do not know how to ask for help. 

If your loved one does not feel comfortable expressing their issues or is embarrassed by them, they may be more hesitant.

If you have strong suspicions but do not feel comfortable approaching the person, you can search around for clues and signs. The signs above are great beginnings, but there are more things you can look for. 

Paraphernalia such as needles, missing medication or empty prescription bottles, odd smells in clothing or cars, and increased hygiene are often non-personal cues that can give you a clear answer. Addicts will often disengage in social situations where they normally thrive.
