Addiction to Drugs or Alcohol has a certain cycle that makes it an addiction.
You might be thinking if the person you are seeking help for is actually addicted.
There is a difference between a person who is addicted or a social user.
Those addicted will use mind alternating substances in order to handle different aspects of their lives.
To determine if the individual is addicted; does the person seem to need Alcohol and/or Drugs to have fun, use a substance to be able to communicate ( a lot of people use cocaine to socialize and/or with alcohol so they don’t sound sloppy), sleep ( some people need marijuana or sleeping pills’ anything to get them to sleep), relax ( some people need to smoke weed or have some beers to relax)
That is just a couple of examples of how some person needs a substance in order to deal with everyday life, which is addiction and can be at all different degrees. How do you know where the line crosses between one who needs treatment or not and what is the proper treatment that suits the type of addiction?
