Behavioral, Emotional, and Physical Signs of Addiction

It is easy to say the words, addiction is a disease that alters people’s brains. But what does that mean? The illness may occur in people’s brains, but the effects are shown in people’s real lives. Addiction changes people’s emotions, bodies, and behaviors. Its effects are devastating. The following are the behavioral, emotional, and physical signs of addiction. Think about your own life as you read through this list. If you recognize anything, it may be time to reach out for help. Know that help is available.

Behavioral Symptoms of Addiction

  • Hiding and keeping secrets.
  • Relational problems—fighting, tension, strain, worry, and more.
  • Regularly missing school or work or personal engagements.
  • Work or school challenges—low grades, poor review, or being fired.
  • Disconnecting from relationships and activities—isolating oneself.
  • Financial difficulties (especially needing money).
  • Lying to hide one’s behavior (especially to loved ones).

Emotional Symptoms of Addiction

  • An inability to handle stress or challenges in life.
  • Loss of interest in people/activities that were once valued.
  • Irritability.
  • Defensiveness.
  • Lacking awareness about one’s behavior: blame, denial, rationalizations, minimizations, diversions.
  • Being obnoxious, silly, or easily confused.

Physical Symptoms of Addiction

  • Being hyperactive or lethargic (depending upon the drug).
  • Being undernourished or pale.
  • Repetitive speech.
  • Weight loss.
  • Body odor that is unpleasant or different.
  • Red eyes, dilated pupils.
  • Excessive sniffing while not ill.

These signs give a more tangible picture of how addiction brings destruction to addicts and their loved ones. Addiction offers false promises of hope and healing and acceptance, but it never delivers. Instead, addiction leads people down the same path other illnesses lead—toward death. Addiction may steal people’s family, finances, career, and even health, but it can be fought. Like other illnesses, mental health professionals often know the best way to combat the illness and bring long-term healing.

Addiction Therapy at Thriveworks Manassas in Prince William: Scheduling an Appointment

If you are fighting an addiction, you are not alone. It is estimated that 21 million individuals in the US are also fighting. Here are a few other things that may be helpful to know…

  • Addiction is not a choice—No one wants to be addicted. Just as you did not choose to be an addict, you cannot simply choose to stop the compulsive behavior or the substance abuse. You can work on changing the patterns in your brain, and a skilled mental health therapist can often help.
  • You are a strong person—Addiction strikes indiscriminately. It can attack the rich and poor, the old and young, men and women. Addiction has nothing to do with whether people are strong. Just as no one should be blamed for having cancer, no one should be blamed for having an addiction.

Treatment options are available for addiction. If you live near Manassas or Wellington and are ready to get started, the therapists, psychologists, and counselors at Thriveworks Manassas in Prince William are ready, too. When you contact our office, your first appointment may be within a week of your first call.

I see a doctor every two weeks I have talked to him about this and until u was blacking the blue in the face. I think he sees it now. Thank good

I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊
