Do you feel like your life revolves around using a substance? Maybe you use more than you intend, even when it causes problems in your work, relationships, or health. Perhaps you've tried to quit on your own, but find yourself using again and again. These are all common signs of addiction.


Addiction is a powerful and complex disease, but it's not a life sentence.
