Helping You Overcome Addiction
Introduction to Addiction
Addiction, whether to alcohol, prescription medications, or illicit drugs, touches the lives of thousands of Americans each year. The impact addiction has on families, friends, and the greater community is significant. Across the nation, more than twenty-one million Americans struggle with at least one addiction, but less than ten percent will ever receive substance abuse treatment. More than ninety percent of those who have an addiction to drugs or alcohol started experimenting with substances before the age of eighteen, and over half a million Americans have died due to drug overdose in the last decade. The cost of addiction is substantial, but with comprehensive treatment, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

What is Addiction?
At one time, addiction was viewed as a choice. In society and across much of the medical community, it was believed that those who struggled with addiction did so voluntarily. These misguided views led to significant stigma and fear surrounding addiction and addiction treatment. Fortunately, time and understanding have changed how addiction is seen. It is now understood to be a complex condition that significantly impacts the brain and all body systems. Regardless of their substance of choice, someone who struggles with an addiction has an intense, overwhelming focus on obtaining and using drugs or alcohol. The focus (desire, craving) is so strong that it inevitably overtakes the addict’s life and their ability to function or focus on anything outside of substance seeking and using. Unfortunately, they will continue to use drugs or alcohol despite knowing there are negative consequences to their physical and psychological health.
Addiction is an illness that is not restricted by demographic. It does not care about age, race, religion, economic stability, or social standing. There are many different substances one can become addicted to, and each substance has unique effects on the brain and body as well as the individual who uses drugs or alcohol. There are, however, common effects that present with most substances and those typically affect how the reward center in the brain functions. Eventually, with ongoing and increasing substance use, the brain struggles to feel joy and pleasure without the artificial reward stimulation brought on by substance use. Needing to use more and more of a substance to feel happiness is known as tolerance. Increased tolerance is a sign of addiction and without proper addiction treatment is an indicator of a level of use that could lead to overdose.
Symptoms of Addiction
Signs Someone is Abusing
Drugs & Alcohol
The signs someone is abusing drugs or alcohol may be different from person to person. They will also vary depending on that person’s substance of choice. Although many substances produce effects unique to the nature of the drug, there are several common indicators that are seen regardless of substance. Some of the most common include new or worsening challenges at home, school, or work, alterations in behavior, changes to physical appearance, appetite changes, weight changes (typically weight loss), lack of energy, new or worsening financial and legal troubles, and defensiveness when asked about substance use. Alcohol addiction shares many common symptoms to those seen with drug abuse. Other symptoms you may notice related to alcohol may be lack of control over how much one drinks, continuing to drink despite adverse effects related to alcohol, preferring to drink alone, mood swings, and other emotional disturbances (especially when unable to drink or abstaining from alcohol).
Many of these symptoms are indeed distressing and upsetting when they happen to a loved one. It is important to remember that while in the clutches of addiction, they may not realize or be ready to admit they have a problem with substances. It is important to help in any way you can while realizing it can sometimes take time for someone to acknowledge their struggles. The hardest part of starting the journey to recovery is taking the first step. At our Michigan treatment center, we are here to help.
