Individuals struggling with drug and alcohol abuse or dependence often struggle in many other areas of their lives including marriage, child-parent relationships, and at work. Although Pathways does not specifically offer a chemical dependency treatment program, our professional therapists can help you sort through the underlying pain and related problems that are preventing you from experiencing life to the fullest.
One or more of these signs may be present:
Requirement for more of a substance to get the same effect
Unexplained and unaccounted for behavior
Increased secrecy and withdrawal
For alcohol, missing alcohol around the home
Cognitive changes, including mood, memory, and performance
Work and family issues
Trouble with the law
What should I do?
You might initially choose to confront the person by yourself and bring someone to assist you in the confrontation for backup or if the first confrontation is not successful. Seek emergency medical assistance if needed or a general practitioner who may recommend additional actions.
