A close person’s drug use is not something to be minimized or ignored. Also, many times there are certain signs or changes in attitudes that generate uncertainty.
To remove the doubts and think about implementing the best treatment, a note from the website of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime lists the main symptoms not to be overlooked.
Involvement in robbery situations.
Loss of motivation.
Lack of interest in daily life.
Absences from commitments, such as study or work
Refusing to acknowledge the harmful effects of drugs.
Avoid very close friends or people who might directly point out changes in attitudes.
Keep your phone calls secret
Be evasive when asked where they’ve been.
Red eyes and dilated pupils.
Lack of interest in personal hygiene and unkempt appearance.
Loss or increase in appetite.
Irregular rest times.
Frequent colds and coughs.
If from examining these signs or from the person’s confession the use of drugs occurs, the recommendation is to contact a professional or a specialized centre.
