  2. Physical symptoms: changes in appetite, sleep patterns, weight, or appearance, tremors, slurred speech, or drowsiness.
  3. Cognitive changes: memory problems, difficulty concentrating, or disorientation.
  4. Relationship problems: strained or broken relationships, withdrawal from family and friends, or increased conflict with loved ones.
  5. Financial problems: increased spending on drugs or alcohol, difficulty paying bills, or theft to obtain money for drugs or alcohol.
  6. Legal problems: arrests, driving under the influence, or other legal problems related to drug or alcohol use.
  7. Continued use despite negative consequences: using drugs or alcohol despite knowing that it is causing problems at work, school, or in personal relationships.
