Signs of Addiction

Symptoms of addiction vary depending on the person’s physical and emotional makeup, substance being abused, and how long it has been abused. The primary mark of addiction is when a person continues to abuse drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences. Call 844-299-7326 to learn more.
