Addiction is a condition in which the body must have a drug to avoid physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Addiction’s first stage is dependence, during which the search for a drug dominates an individual’s life. An addict eventually develops tolerance, which forces the person to consume larger and larger doses of the drug to get the same effect. Therein lies the danger, drugs and other addictive substances are all dangerous and an addict will continue to use in increasingly larger doses that can lead to serious side effects and in many cases death.

It is for this reason that parents need to be ready to intervene at a moments notice. If you believe your child may be suffering from addiction then there are certain signs that you can look for.
