Is it time to reach out for help?

Addiction is an illness. And just like any other disease, it rarely gets better on its own. Addiction needs to be treated. If you are struggling with an addiction, sometimes it is hard to recognize you need help. This is one of the trickiest parts of the disease. However, if you identify with any of the warning signs below, it may be time to change and seek treatment.

Your life feels out of control

Addiction can be a powerful force and make you feel powerless. It can make you neglect things that used to matter to you, like your family, job and friends. If you feel like all of your time and energy is focused on finding your next fix, it is likely time to reach out for help.

Addiction is causing you financial trouble

If you are spending all of your money on drugs and alcohol and ignoring bills, there is reason to be concerned. It is more alarming if you are stealing money from loved ones or your employer to pay for your addiction.

You are isolating yourself from loved ones

Addiction can take a heavy toll on your relationships. Drugs and alcohol can make it hard to connect with the people you love and cause you to push people away.

You constantly feel numb

At some point, using drugs and alcohol was probably fun. If you feel like you need to use drugs or alcohol to get through the day but your mood continually feels flat, it is concerning. Every day, you should feel a healthy range of emotions – including happiness and joy.

You are not alone

If you are currently struggling with a substance use disorder, we understand how scary it can feel to reach out for help. Fortunately, addiction is not an illness you have to battle alone. The entire team at Jackson House Addiction Treatment & Recovery Center is here and ready to help you with your recovery.
