Drug Addiction: What are the Signs?

Larry Litras, a social worker and clinical addiction specialist at the Carrier Clinic®, an NJ psychiatric hospital and recovery center, points out some of the signs of drug addiction parents should be aware of such as behavioral changes, including a shift in personality or social group and isolation. He stresses the importance of direct and honest conversations about drugs with children in their younger years and that the conversation should extend to make grandparents aware of the risks of medications being accessible to children.

Carrier Clinic is dedicated to helping those who are mentally ill and/or chemically dependent recover in a caring, safe, and compassionate environment.
