The symptoms of addiction can be hard to pinpoint because they vary greatly. Addiction is a term that is used to describe a variety of substance use and activity dependencies, so this list of symptoms is not entirely comprehensive, and should not be used in place of real medical advice.
Addiction is a hard topic to address with your loved ones. It’s important to keep in mind that addiction is a real disease, and those affected need support from the people around them. If you know of someone who may need help, direct them to sondermind.com to connect them to a therapist suited to their needs.
