Recognize the signs of opioid addiction:
Opioid use disorder is defined by Johns Hopkins Medicine as a medical condition in which one is “not able to abstain from using opioids, and behaviors centered around opioid use that interfere with daily life.” It might be difficult to tell if a loved one is living with opioid addiction, but there are a few signs to look out for, such as:
- Weight loss
- Lack of hygiene
- Isolation from family or friends
- New financial difficulties
- Along with others.
If you suspect that a loved one is living with opioid use disorder, approach the situation with compassion and respect. Make your support known, and don’t try to force them to do anything that they aren’t comfortable with. At the end of the day, it is their life, they get to choose if and when they seek recovery.
