Substance use disorder is a progressive disease. No one starts using heroin without warning signs. It may start with alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, and most commonly prescription pain killers.
Substance abuse can happen to anyone. Anyone can use drugs, anyone can become addicted, and anyone can overdose. Know the warning signs before it’s too late.
Pay attention to significant changes in the physical appearance, attitude and/or behavior of the individual.
