Tim Walsh, Vice President of Long Term Recovery and Mental Health Services at Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge joined me this morning, and we discussed addictions – and knowing when it’s time to seek professional help:
Here’s to know when you’ve reached the tipping point: A person is using drugs and alcohol in large amounts, and it’s increasing. They haven’t been able to cut down their use. Most of their activities are centered around drugs or alcohol. They’re starting to not meet their obligations at work, school, or home. Their relationships are starting to fail. Everything that they used (to find) joy and happiness has gone by the wayside, and it’s actually affecting their mental health. If that describes you, you need to get help.
