More to Know About: Drugs and Controlled Substances

Highly dangerous yet often misunderstood, substance abuse is a pattern of repeated drug use that often interferes with health, work, and social relationships. Substance abuse pertains to both illegal scheduled drugs and controlled substances. We’re going to cover drug addiction statistics, how to spot it in others, and available drug addiction help.

In the past 20 years, opioid abuse has become an epidemic across the United States. Michigan has passed several laws reducing the risk of jail time and increasing treatment for those with drug addictions, such as the 2016 Good Samaritan Law. However, there’s still a lot to be done to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction and to prioritize saving lives over imprisonment.

Drug Addiction Statistics

Identifying Drug Addiction in Kids and Loved Ones

It can be challenging finding out your child or loved one has substance use disorder. While each one doesn’t definitively indicate drug abuse, these are some general indicators of drug addiction:

  • Difficulties at school/work, disinterest in extracurriculars, declining grades
  • Changes in physical appearances, such as wearing inappropriate or dirty clothing and declining hygiene
  • Increased paranoia or sudden desire for privacy
  • Financial mismanagement
  • Defensiveness when asked about substance use
  • Changes in appetite and weight loss
  • Bloodshot eyes, poor skin tone and appearing exhausted

It’s important to remember that drug abuse doesn’t make anyone a bad person or a “druggie.” They need support, treatment and a will to change. Drug addiction help is a call or click away.

During these unprecedented times, Resolve It Now! is a drug and alcohol assessment agency that provides certified substance assessment services online that would satisfy court ordered requirements remotely, without treatment center visits.
