If you are concerned about someone you love that is struggling with an addiction, there are signs that you can spot a mile away and there are more subtle signs. Here are a few red flags to look out for:

  • Lack of commitment and responsibility
  • Unemployment and issues at work
  • Constant sick leave

When To Get Help

If your drug use is causing destruction and pain in your life – get help. Talk to one of our social workers at ARCA and they will suggest what is the best option for your condition.  Get help if you or a loved one are experiencing the following:

  • You want to stop using, you just do not know-how
  • You abuse drugs despite the negative consequences
  • Your drug use has led to risky behavior such as breaking the law and sharing needles.
  • You want to stop but the withdrawal symptoms are too uncomfortable

No one is excited the day they enter a rehabilitation center, and the fear of facing life without drugs can be frightening. At ARCA we love the addict until they can love themselves. There are hope and courage in recovery and we will encourage you and help you find that strength. Your story doesn’t have to end like that. Give us a call or contact us via email now for a free assessment.
