- Is your loved one showing signs of addiction?
- Have they stopped doing the things they used to enjoy? Skipping work or lost their jobs? Do they lie constantly? Do you find their stories never quite add up? Have you noticed items in your home going missing?
- Have you watched them turn from the vibrant, lively person they were into a shell of a body whose only daily function is to find another high?
- When they leave, do you worry that you will never see them again?
Did you answer yes to most or all of these questions?
Then it’s time to do the right thing and help your loved one get into addiction treatment. Call today for a free phone assessment. A better life awaits.
