How To Tell if a Person is a Drug Addict

As an addiction specialist in Tampa Florida I would like to talk about how to spot an addict.

People using coke or other stimulants often exhibit some telltale signs:

  • Dilated Pupils
  • Erratic Behavior
  • Nervousness, Irritability and Anxiety

More importantly, are the general signs of addiction
  • Changes in behavior
  • Keeping Different hours
  • New or different associates and friends
  • Having money problems
  • Losing track of social and work obligations

    Addicts are often powerless to help themselves and need someone else to help them. If you see a loved one or friend struggling with
    drug addiction, talk to them about it, they may seem defensive at first, but eventually they’ll recognize that you are trying to act in their best interest.

With some addictions there are medications that can be useful in curbing craving and behaviors. As such, it may be useful to consult an addiction professional --additionally as folks find themselves deeper in the web of addiction, they need outside resource for addiction recovery. A counselor or therapist can be of utility as well. Additionally, group settings like the twelve step program of AA or NA can be of great used to the active addict and person who requires recover.
