It is difficult to recognize if someone you care about has an addiction. However, understanding the signs is a great first step towards helping them in their journey to recovery. Addiction doesn’t start overnight - typically it starts with recreational use, before becoming a more unhealthy and unsafe habit of putting their health, safety, career, relationships, and overall well-being in jeopardy.
Amatus Recovery Centers can walk you the warning signs and how you can address the topic to someone without being hurtful. Substance use disorder takes away your loved one's ability to choose to stop, even if they want to. Someone with addiction is unlikely to admit it as they often cover their tracks.
Amatus Recovery Centers offers the full continuum of drug and alcohol treatment, from medical assisted detox to long-term group therapy aftercare.
