Identifying Signs of Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Is It Time To Seek Help For Addiction?

Greenbriar Treatment Center is dedicated to helping those who suffer from addiction. It can be difficult to know when you need to ask for help. Addiction can manifest in many ways, making it hard to recognize. One of the most common signs of addiction is the presence of what is known as the four C's:

  1. Cravings - Cravings for the substance or behavior associated with addiction can be powerful and difficult to resist. Compulsivity - .Conflict - Individuals suffering from addiction often experience conflict in their relationships due
  2. Control - Control is an important factor when it comes to addiction. Individuals may feel like they cannot control their cravings or behaviors, leading to further issues.
  3. Compulsion - Compulsive use of a substance or behavior can lead to further abuse, loss of control, and compulsive behaviors even when it’s not desired or necessary
  4. Consequences - Many individuals may experience consequences from their addiction like legal problems, financial difficulties, or health concerns.

If you're experiencing any of these four signs, it may be time to consider seeking help for your addiction at one of our Pittsburgh treatment centers.

In addition to the 4 C's, physical symptoms can indicate an issue with addiction. If you're feeling sick or experiencing intense cravings when you haven't used in several hours or days, it may be time to seek help. Other physical symptoms to look out for include changes in hygiene, weight, and overall appearance.

Behavioral indicators are also key signs that you should seek help for your addiction. This can include decisions to get high or drunk instead of attending a family, work, or social engagement, falling asleep or passing out randomly, or isolating yourself from others. Additionally, if your performance or attendance at work or school is impacted by your substance use, it may be time to get help.

Our team of professionals will work with you to develop a plan that fits your needs and goals.
