Drug Addiction has many faces, and some of them may look very familiar.

Depending on your level of tolerance, the stages of drug addiction may take days; sometimes even years, to develop.

When an individual uses a substance, whether recreationally or under the care of a physician, it is possible to develop tolerance, increased use, physical dependence, and ultimately addiction. At this point, he or she may be unable to stop using the substance despite harm to their physical or mental health, relationships, job, and other important areas of life.

Addiction is sometimes referred to as substance abuse, drug abuse, or Substance Use Disorder as diagnosed by a treatment professional. One of the hallmarks of addiction is withdrawal, which occurs when you attempt to stop using the substance. Withdrawal symptoms can include anxiety, sleeplessness, nausea and vomiting, high or low blood pressure, seizures, or even death. It is critical that someone experiencing withdrawal symptoms seeks the care of a medical professional in order to detox safely.

Drug abuse can cause a number of physical and behavioral symptoms.

Physical symptoms include:

Changes in pupil size – either larger than normal or “pinpoint” pupils
Bloodshot eyes or glazed eyes
Weight gain or weight loss in a short period of time
Problems sleeping too little or too much
Skin issues or marks on injection sites in the arms, hands, or feet
Changes in hygiene

Behavioral symptoms include:

Increased aggression, agitation, or irritability
Changes to personality or social circle
Depression or other mood changes
Drastic changes in habits or priorities; neglect in school or work
Criminal charges including DUI, DWI, Drunk in Public, Shoplifting, etc.
