All the following are not definite signs of an addict in his/her addiction but are common: Changes in behavior or attitude, changes in usual activities or schedule, missing functions i.e. work, school, family functions, disheveled appearance, sudden weight loss, change in friend group
- If you are concerned someone close to you has a problem with addiction let him or her know you are there for him/her when needed. If you are a concerned parent who needs to know if your son/daughter is using drugs it is recommended to drug test them. It may be wise to have a plan in place prior to the drug test so if it is positive you can act accordingly. You can purchase a urine drug test at most drug stores.
