  • Legal issues
  • Secretive behavior
  • Self-isolation
  • Neglecting responsibilities

Secretive Behavior

Of the behavioral signs of drug abuse, secretive behavior may be one of the most common and telling. Someone who struggles with addiction may become increasingly withdrawn from loved ones and often seeks privacy to obtain or use drugs. They may feel they need to keep their drug or alcohol use a secret and may lie about their whereabouts or activities.

Isolating Oneself

Social, emotional and mental isolation are common signs that someone needs help for a drug or alcohol addiction. People who face a substance use disorder may isolate themselves from their partners, friends or family members to keep their addiction a secret. They’ll try to avoid questions about unexplained physical changes, like track marks or weight loss, or odd behaviors.

Neglecting Responsibilities

If someone is repeatedly high or under the influence of alcohol, they may disregard their daily responsibilities, like attending work or school, running a household or taking care of pets and children. They may have difficulty remembering details of important appointments or blatantly ignore pressing deadlines or obligations.
