Home Why Drug Test? Drug Free Workplace Program For Familes DOT Website About Us Contact Information

Learning that someone you love has an addiction is a terribly difficult thing to face.  You are not alone.  Whether it is a parent, sibling, child, or friend, their addiction has caused pain in your life, and you are among millions of people in this country who are facing the same thing.

It has been our experience that one of the most difficult things for family members to accept is that they cannot control the addict's behavior.  When dealing with a loved one who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is important to remember, you did not cause it, you can't control it, and you can't cure it.

Addiction is an uncontrollable, compulsive use of alcohol or drugs that continues even if it is causing problems in a person's life.

You may only suspect that the dramatic changes in your loved one's behavior is caused by drugs.  Look for some of these warning signs: aggressive behavior, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, sudden weight loss, poor hygiene, frequent illness, and excessive absence from school or work, hyperactivity, lying, missing medications, sudden mood changes, depression, and a loss of interest in things your loved one  previously enjoyed.

Whether you are just beginning to notice a problem or have known for some time that someone you care about is an addict, it is very important to learn the facts.  Educating yourself can help you motivate an addict to seek the proper help and get well.
