How do I know if I am addicted to drugs?

For many, casual use of drugs does not lead to drug addiction. If you are thinking obsessively and compulsively about using drugs, you have a problem. Even when you are not actually using drugs, you could have overwhelming cravings to do so. It is important to get help sooner rather than later and seek the support of treatment services.

You do not have to go through it alone and help is confidential. Meet others that may be going through the same as you are.
