Drug Seeking Behavior & Signs to Look Out ForWhile the signs and symptoms of addiction may vary depending on the substance in question, there are some general physical and behavioral red flags that addicts may exhibit:
- They keep taking a prescription drug longer or more heavily than directed.
- They need more and more of a substance to feel the same effects, or they can take more than usual before they feel any effects (tolerance.)
- They feel strange or uncomfortable when they’re not using the drug. This may include withdrawals like shakiness, depression, stomach ache, sweating, or headache.
- They can’t stop using the drug, even if they want to.
- They keep using the substance even if it causes trouble in their relationships, at work, or at home.
- They spend a lot of their time thinking about the drug: how to get more of it, when they’ll take it, how good it’ll feel, and how bad they’ll feel after.
- They have a hard time limiting themselves. For example, they may say that they’ll only have two drinks at the party but end up having way more.
- They’ve lost interest in things they once enjoyed doing.
- They drive or do other dangerous things while under the influence.
- They borrow or steal money to buy drugs or alcohol.
- They hide their drug use from others.
- They sleep too much or too little.
- They eat a lot more or a lot less than before they started using drugs.
- They look very different – bloodshot eyes, gained or lost an excessive amount of weight, etc.
- They’re struggling to get along with their co-workers, friends, or family members.
- They have a new friend group with whom they do drugs or drink.
- They go to multiple doctors to obtain more prescription drugs.
- They lie about ailments or symptoms to get more prescription drugs.
- They look in other people’s medicine cabinets for drugs they can take.
- They mix prescription drugs with alcohol or drugs.
