What to look for

Many times, it can be difficult to determine if you or a loved one has an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. The team at Transformations understands this.

Below we’ve provided some typical signs and symptoms that may indicate an individual has a problem with alcohol or drug abuse. These symptoms are not all inclusive and may manifest in other forms.

It’s important to note the presence of these signs and symptoms could indicate other behavioral issues, not solely substance abuse problems. Please call us at 317-219-6673 if you need help navigating what to look for.
