This is reflected by the way the dedicated staff at this reputable treatment facility has taken the time to put together a series of educational resources on addiction. Of which the latest article in this series highlights the importance of knowing the stages of addiction. Their experienced staff realizes that getting out the right information to those suffering from addiction and their loved ones, gives those suffering from addiction the best chance of understanding that there is hope to recover from their substance dependency. Much of the information that was added to this latest article comes from Circle of Hope’s own excellent substance abuse counselors which consist of some of the top addiction therapists in greater LA.

This new Circle of Hope post titled ‘Stages of Addiction: Know When You’re on A Slippery Slope’, starts by saying that it can be difficult for people to recognize the warning signs of addiction. The blog stated that addiction does not happen all at once but is a process as it identifies 4 of these warning signs and classifies them into stages. It also talks about how uncharacteristic emotions such as irritability, aggression, anxiety, and depression often accompany these stages as well as someone starting to act out or exhibit compulsive behaviors. The first stage that was mentioned in the article was noticing a loved one's change in physical appearance and wellbeing. This can be anything from bloodshot, watery, or blurry eyes to a normally well-groomed individual starting to take on an unkempt appearance. Also pointed out was an individual starting to display decreased motivation and less interest in activities. The article also stated that another stage was someone having reoccurring problems in relationships because addiction often transfers over into this area of someone’s life. There is also another stage of addiction that was identified by a person being willing to take increased health risks to get even more of the substances that are feeding their addiction. The article wrapped up by saying that the well-trained recovery counselors at the Circle of Hope treatment facility can help stop the spiral that the stages of addiction can cause.
