What If Your Child or Loved One is Already Using Synthetics?
Determine if he (or she) is addicted by checking these points.
Has he or she:
- Tried to quit or promised to quit and then returned to use of more synthetics?
- Suffered damage to health?
- Been arrested once or more than once for DUI, DWI or drug possession?
- Been arrested for crimes he (or she) committed to get money for these or other drugs?
- Suffered serious damage to family life?
- Suffered severe financial damage or ruin?
- Overdosed once or more than once and needed emergency medical help?
- Abandoned goals or educational plans?
- Suffered significant personality changes that could include aggression, paranoia, dishonesty or loss of motivation?
- Created suffering for those around him due to neglect, or physical or mental abuse?
- Been seriously affected by synthetic abuse in other ways?
- Already been to rehab one or more times and relapsed every time?
This is only a very brief test. But if ANY of these signs are present and the person has continued to abuse these drugs, this is addiction. This person may only be able to get sober with help from an effective rehabilitation program.
When a Person Needs Help
At some time or another, nearly every family will have to deal with the addiction of one of their family or extended family members. It could be an uncle that seems half-drunk at every family celebration, someone who lost everything to prescription opiate addiction or a loved one who has fallen into a pattern of abusing synthetics. _It is important to know how to find this person a lasting solution. _
The kinds of changes that must occur to recover from addiction include:
- A person must find relief from the incessant, intense cravings that make sobriety difficult or lead to repeated relapses.
- He (or she) must overcome the depression that accompanies addiction.
- He must gain more self-control and recover his clear perception of his world.
- He must also find relief from the guilt that results from addiction.
- He must regain a sense of morals and personal responsibility.
- He must learn the life skills that make it possible to maintain a sober path toward success after he returns to his usual life.

Addiction does not have to be a permanent curse. It can be overcome. But it is best when it can be prevented entirely.
