Getting and using the drug is more important than anything else including school/career, friends and family.  Drugs make normal functioning difficult by impairing judgment.  The mental and physical effects of using drugs vary with the specific drug(s).  If you suspect drug abuse, you can look for cycles with someone’s behavior:

  • unusual calmness, unresponsiveness and/or being spaced out
  • boundless energy, cheerfulness and/or unusually talkative
  • increased agitation, irritability and/or quick to anger
  • apathy
  • depression
  • paranoia
  • delusions
  • temporary psychosis and hallucinations
