Addiction is the physical and psychological need to continue using a substance, despite its harmful or dangerous effects. It can be a truly debilitating disease. One of the toughest things that someone who suffers from addiction can do is to see or admit that they have a problem. Sometimes their body has tricked them into thinking that they don’t even have a problem. Are you worried that you or someone you know might suffer from an addiction problem? Well, let’s take a look at some of the common signs that you might need addiction treatment in NJ.

A High Tolerance

With any substance, in the beginning, you might need only a little bit to reach your desired “goal”. As you continue to use that substance to reach that goal you might start to notice that you need to consume more. While this might just be a sign of a higher tolerance, it also might be a sign that your body is growing a dependency on the substance.
