Changes in Behavior

  • Sudden mood swings or unexplained changes in personality.
  • Increased secrecy or lying about activities and whereabouts.
  • Irritability, agitation, or hostility, especially when questioned about substance use.

Physical Signs

  • Bloodshot eyes or pupils that are larger or smaller than usual.
  • Changes in appetite or weight, including sudden weight loss or gain.
  • Impaired coordination or clumsiness.
  • Frequent sniffing, runny nose, or nosebleeds (in the case of drug snorting).
  • Unexplained bruises, marks, or track marks on the body.

Changes in Sleep Patterns

  • Insomnia or difficulty falling and staying asleep.
  • Excessive sleepiness or sleeping at unusual times.

Neglect of Responsibilities

  • Decline in performance at work or school.
  • Neglect of personal hygiene and appearance.
  • Disinterest in previously enjoyed activities or hobbies.

Financial Problems

  • Unexplained financial difficulties or sudden requests for money.
  • Selling personal belongings or stealing to support drug or alcohol habits.

Social Withdrawal

  • Withdrawal from family, friends, and social activities.
  • Spending more time alone or with new, substance-using friends.

Legal Issues

  • Legal problems such as arrests, DUIs (Driving Under the Influence), or charges related to drug possession or distribution.

Health Issues

  • Persistent cough, hoarseness, or respiratory issues (for individuals who smoke or use drugs through inhalation).
  • Changes in appetite, including significant weight loss or gain.
  • Chronic health conditions or exacerbation of existing health problems.

Tolerance and Withdrawal Symptoms

  • Developing a tolerance to the substance, requiring larger amounts to achieve the desired effect.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop using the substance, such as nausea, sweating, shaking, or anxiety.

Denial and Defensiveness

  • Denying or downplaying the severity of substance use when confronted by loved ones or concerned individuals.
  • Becoming defensive or angry when questioned about substance use.

It’s important to note that experiencing one or more of these signs does not necessarily mean someone is abusing substances, but they may warrant further assessment or intervention, especially if they are occurring in combination or persistently over time. If you suspect someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, it’s essential to approach them with care, empathy, and support, and encourage them to seek professional help.

Common Therapies Used in Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Therapies used in the treatment of SUD can range from evidence-based therapies to holistic approaches. The various therapeutic approaches ensure that the right approach can be applied to each individual to achieve the best possible outcomes for recovery. Some of the therapies we employ at Ray Recovery include, but are not limited to, the following:

Additionally, some treatments may involve medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which uses FDA-approved medications like buprenorphine for opioid use disorder.

What to Expect from Substance Abuse Treatment Services

The best possible outcome of a substance abuse treatment program is long-term sobriety and self-sufficiency; however, this can vary greatly depending on the severity of the issue and how long someone has been using drugs/alcohol. The length of stay in a substance abuse treatment program can also vary depending on individual needs. Generally, shorter stays are available for those with a less severe form of addiction, while more extended stays are recommended for those requiring intensive care and support services. At Ray Recovery, we offer outpatient treatment in the form of a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP).


A partial hospitalization program is a highly structured and intensive treatment program that is designed to provide the same level of care as an inpatient program with the added flexibility of being able to continue living at home. This type of substance abuse treatment program requires individuals to attend multiple sessions per week for several hours a day over the course of 4 to 8 weeks.


An intensive outpatient program is a more flexible substance abuse treatment service that provides individuals with the same level of care and support as a PHP but with fewer hours per week. Individuals in an IOP typically attend group treatment 3 to 5 days a week for several hours and individual therapy sessions 1 or 2 times per week.
