Early Signs of Addiction

Early Signs of Addiction

At River Ridge Mental Health Services in Minneapolis, we know as well as anyone the importance of taking care of mental health problems. Unfortunately, when it comes to treating mental health problems with the proper mental health service in Minneapolis, half the battle is simply making sure whoever needs help gets the treatment they need in a timely manner.

Part of making sure you or someone you know gets the treatment they need is educating yourself about the signs of mental health problems. To that end, we’ll be reviewing some of the early signs of addiction to look out for. By knowing these signs you’ll be better equipped to make sure someone who needs help gets help.

Lack of Control

One of the most telltale signs that there’s an addiction problem that requires mental health services in Minneapolis is a lack of control. If someone is unable to stop themselves from behaving a certain way or consuming a substance, even when they want to, that’s a strong warning sign of addiction.

Antisocial Behavior

People with addictions tend to withdraw from their relationships. If you notice someone is ignoring social commitments in an uncharacteristic way, make sure you continue to pay close attention to look for other signs.

Symptoms of Withdrawal

When a person becomes addicted to a substance, the lack of that substance can cause unpleasant physical reactions. These are withdrawal symptoms. If someone you know appears to be experiencing these symptoms, make sure they get the mental health services in Minneapolis that they need.
