Our expert says:
Thank you for your post.
We suggest rather than looking at the quantity of drugs that people use, it is more important to look at how it is effecting their life.
We look at addiction as a disease with a criteria namely the following:
- Loss of control
- Tolerance level increases
- Unsuccessful attempts to stop
- Preoccupation ( constantly thinking about using )
- Amount of time using
- Work life and family life deteriorates
I would definitely recommend that you assist your friend with seeking help from a treatment centre. Please call Harmony on 021 790 7779 to arrange a free assessment with our Clinical Director.
Please keep us posted.
Wishing you warmest regards
The Harmony Team
