Turn To Us To Help An Addict In Your Life
You remember a time when he was so much fun. He would smile, crack a funny joke, and could be surprisingly kind at times.
But he’s different now. He keeps to himself when he used to enjoy going out. When he is around, he seems distracted, like his mind is somewhere else.
It’s almost like he’s a different person.
You know something is wrong, and you have a suspicion that he might have a substance abuse problem. After he had that surgery, he hasn’t been the same.
It might be time to call Renew Recovery at 866-840-4719. We have four centers in Kentucky where our focus is on helping an addict like your friend or relative become the best version of themselves. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you as you try to help your loved one.
If you are worried about someone close to you, one of the most important things you can do is learn about addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has put together some guidelines that can be a good place to start.
When someone develops a chemical addiction, it changes their brain. When someone is under the influence of drugs, it changes how they process information, which also affects the actions. As they come down from those effects, they experience withdrawal.
The symptoms of withdrawal can be physical and emotional. Depending on the person and the substance they have been using, they may experience anything from headaches and vomiting to a rapid heartbeat, shaking, and sweating. Emotionally, they may become more anxious, isolated, and irritable, among other things.
You know your friend or family member. If you have noticed dramatic changes in their behavior, that can be a big clue that something is wrong.
Learn What We Can Do
Many times, addicts do want to overcome with dependence on chemicals. Family and friends want to be supportive, but the addict’s actions can make that difficult to do.
Our team at Renew Recovery can provide expert assistance in these situations. By referring your loved one to us, we can begin the treatment process. Our recovery centers in Georgetown, London, and Louisville are staffed with teams of professionals who have helped countless patients.
Our comprehensive approach is aimed at attacking the addiction from all sides. At our recovery centers, our patients get the benefit of medical care and counseling. This may include medication to ease the effects of withdrawal. It does include both individual and group therapy sessions.
We also look at dual diagnosis. For many people, drug addiction goes hand-in-hand with mental health issues. By working to address both of those factors, your loved one has a better chance for long-term success.

Helping an addict is not an easy thing to do. You want to be as supportive as possible, but professional assistance can make a huge difference in the long run.
