When you’re addicted to a certain drug or alcohol, you’re unable to function without the substance. Subconsciously, your entire world revolves around your substance abuse. The dangers of addiction include not only possible health issues but also ruining your relationships with your family and friends. However, there are ways to tell if you or your loved are prone to addiction. Spotting these telltale signs could help you seek the proper rehabilitation that you need. If you’re in need of a Tennessee long-term drug and alcohol addiction recovery program, call Discovery Place at 1-800-725-0922 to start your path to recovery.

Having A Family History Of Substance Abuse

Could You Be Prone to Addiction?

If substance abuse is apart of your family history, then you’re at high risk of succumbing to addiction. Generational addiction is something that plagues many families and continues to destroy many homes. While you’re not guaranteed to partake in the same substance abuse of your family members, your genetics make you more predisposed to substance abuse. For this reason, it’s best to learn the triggers that may have caused the substance abuse within your family members.

Having A Toxic Environment

Most substance abusers are people that have turned to vices to escape their reality, meaning that if you come from a broken home, toxic relationship, or stressful environment, you’re more prone to addiction. Your history almost always plays a key component in your addiction.

Having Mental Health Issues

If you suffer from mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression, you may be prone to addiction. If you lack healthy outlets for your mental health issues, you are more likely to turn to substance abuse. While your issues may seem resolved in the midst of your addiction, your peace is only temporary. Ultimately, your cycle of substance abuse becomes neverending. Examples of mental health issues that could possibly lead to addiction include:

  • Depression;
  • PTSD;
  • Anxiety; and/or
  • Bipolar Disorder.

Substance Abuse At A Young Age

The younger you are to abuse drugs or alcohol, the more likely you will continue this trend in your later years. Recognizing this early can immediately put you on the path to recovery. Statistics show that most people experiment with drugs for the first time in their teenage years.

  • I have remained sober and it is because of DP. DP is the best place there is, hands down. I keep everyone there in my prayers, and I encourage everyone there to take what they are practicing and do it in their lives, after.

  • Discovery Place means the world to me. They showed me the tools that I’ve tried to use everyday in my life to think less often of myself, and more frequently of others. I am learning to lend a hand when I am able and to have a honest and humble relationship with God and the people around me. Not only am I clean and sober, but also I am happy and fulfilled.

  • When I got to Discovery Place my whole life was in shambles, but I didn’t know it. I spent 6 months in their programs, participating in all three phases, and was met with kindness and love all along the way. It is unbelievable to me, where I am now relative to where I was when I arrived at DP.

    Lance Duke
  • I can never say enough good things about Discovery Place and the people who work there. Before checking in to DP, I was out of options and out of answers. Fortunately, Discovery Place has a solution. Taking suggestions from the staff at DP saved my life, and as a result, I’m now more content and hopeful about life. I’m grateful for Discovery Place showing me how to live a healthy life so that I can become a better man and help the next guy.”
