Get Immediate Help. Know The Signs Of Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is usually something that starts out simply enough.

Though not all people try drinking, many do. Most do it on occasion, and it never becomes a problem for them.

Some with addictive personalities, however, may soon find that they have a drinking problem, even when they can’t come right out and admit it, even to themselves. Problems with all types of drugs are probably more common than imagined, and that usually starts off with an experiment that leads to someone being hooked.

Alcohol is addictive, and different drugs have varying degrees of how long it takes for addiction to kick in. Some, like heroin, grab hold very early. This can happen as early as the very first time someone tries it and leads to a very quick case of substance addiction.

Those that develop these addictions usually have a predisposition to becoming addicted, and that might come in other forms. Some are addicted to shopping or gambling, and the response in the brain is almost the same. Others find that substance abuse addiction is a way to forget or block out many of the bad things that happened to them in the past or things that are going on currently.

Drug addiction is something that is hard to understand until you have seen it up close. After all, addiction to drugs – or anything for that matter – involves a rapid and drastic transformation of personality. Substance addicts are so driven by their craving that they can be almost unrecognizable to former friends.

They can look unhealthy, spew out paranoid rants, have trouble thinking or concentrating, and stab people they normally would care about in the back. It is an ugly thing to see a friend you used to care about turn to drug abuse.

A lot of people say that getting into drug dependence doesn't happen overnight, but sometimes it does. Drugs addiction can be a sudden or a gradual transformation. Sometimes, it takes people years to get involved in the drug.
