Substance Abuse | Symptoms


How do I know if I have a problem?

You have a problem with drugs or alcohol if you continue to use them even when they cause problems with your health, money, work or school, or relationships. You may have a problem if you have developed a tolerance to drugs or alcohol. This means you need to use more and more to get the same effect.

Listen to loved ones who express concern over your drug use. They may help you recognize that you have a problem.
