Signs of Abuse

There are a number of signs and symptoms of drug abuse and alcoholism which alert us that there may be a problem in need of addressing.

The following is a list of questions to ask yourself. It’s not meant to take the place of a clinical assessment – just food for thought.

  • Have you ever been concerned about your drinking or drug use?
  • Has anyone ever made comments about your drinking or drug use?
  • Have you ever made promises to yourself to cut down or quit?
  • Has your drinking or drug use interfered with work or school?

List of Signs of Abuse

The following signs and symptoms have been compiled from various sources including the CDC and National Council on Substance Abuse.

Please remember: if a person shows any of the following symptoms, it does NOT automatically mean that they’re on drugs. It could be stress, symptoms of depression, an illness or something else.

Whatever the cause, they may warrant attention, especially if the signs persist. Seek competent medical advice, a mental health professional or a licensed counselor.

Signs of Relapse

The Gorski-CENAPS model identifies phases and warning signs for relapse. If you see warning signs like these, you or someone you know may be at risk of relapse:

  1. Return to denying there's a problem
  2. Avoidance and defensive behavior
  3. Crisis building
  4. Immobilization (inability to take any action)
  5. Confusion and Over-reaction
  6. Depression
  7. Behavioral loss of control
  8. Recognition of loss of control
  9. Option reduction (feeling trapped and that there are only 3 ways out - insanity, suicide or drug use)
  10. Acute relapse episode

The following are “warning phases” from the Gorski-CENAPS model – changes in behavior which signal the onset of a relapse.

  • Stopping or decreasing recovery-related activities
  • Isolating from friends, family and peers in recovery
  • Becoming defensive in response to questions about your well-being
  • The inability to stop thinking about alcohol and other drugs
  • Becoming confused, irritable or angry
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Excessive worrying about others instead of self

Important Note: Intervention during any of these phases CAN re-engage you in recovery!
