They may look disheveled, with wrinkled clothing and unkempt hair. They may lack proper grooming habits, such as not shaving for a period of time. They may have smells on their clothing or body. They may lose or gain a significant amount of weight suddenly. If you notice any of these changed in your loved one, they likely need treatment for their addiction.
