Many people use substances, but get overwhelmed with them and are not sure when or if to stop. It can be difficult to know when it’s time to seek help for substance use. So, here are some signs to look out for:

  • You want to give up substances but can’t seem to kick the habit.
  • Your drug or alcohol tolerance is building.
