How Do I Know I Should Call a New Jersey Addiction Hotline?
If you believe you or someone you love may be abusing drugs and are unsure whether you should call an NJ drug abuse hotline, there are a couple of common alcoholism and drug addiction questions you can ask yourself:
- Has drug or alcohol use become more frequent, serious, or is it causing issues? Have you began noticing symptoms of binge drinking?
- Have you or someone you love suggested they wanted to get sober and didn’t know where to start?
- Do you need help or advice on how to approach the topic of addiction and get them the help or resources they need?
- Have you or someone you love started to neglect responsibilities at school, work, or home in favor of substance use?
- Have you or someone you love started acting out of character, continuing to use despite reservations, relationship impacts, increased need to achieve the same feeling (tolerance), or mental/physical withdrawal symptoms that could indicate dependence?
- Some symptoms include: losing interest in favorite things, becoming messy/neglecting to bathe, change clothes, or brush teeth, cranky moods or mood swings, sleeping at strange hours, eating a lot more or less than usual.
If any of the above sounds familiar, a local 24/7 New Jersey drug addiction hotline can offer you the advice you need to begin finding help. We have also created an addiction self assessment if you are still unsure as to whether there is a drug abuse problem.
If you or a loved one is experiencing a medical or psychological emergency, such as overdose, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Do not call a hotline, as they are not equipped to handle these situations.
