What are the symptoms of drug addiction?
The psychological, behavioural, social and physical symptoms of drug addiction can vary from person to person, and also depend upon the type of drug that you are addicted to, the amount of the drug that you are consuming, the frequency of your drug use, and the method by which you have been consuming the drug e.g. snorting, injecting, smoking, swallowing etc.
At Priory, our specialist teams are able to deliver world class drug addiction treatment and therapy, and are dedicated to empowering each and every one of our patients to address their symptoms, and take steps towards a healthy and fulfilling future, free from drug addiction.
As well as taking or administering drugs on a regular basis, the following are also signs that you, or someone that you know, may be struggling with an addiction to drugs.
