  • Some people suffering from addiction may not even know they are addicted. They may not know that their behaviour is out of control and causing serious problems to themselves and people close to them

  • Some of the signs of addiction include:

  • Physical withdrawal if one stops taking the substance of abuse. In the case of opiate abuse this can include sweats, chills, muscle aches, insomnia, irritability, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea

  • Tolerance: the diminished effect/‘high’ with the same amount of drug use OR increasing amount used to achieve desired effect

  • Inability to cut down on drug use or continued use despite being aware of negative consequences

  • Increasing amounts or duration of substance use than was intended

  • Excessive amount of time spent pursuing drugs/substances

  • Negative impact on family, social, work, recreational activities due to drug use
