How is Inhalant Addiction Detected?
Inhalant abuse often goes undetected. The abused substances are very often common household products, so their presence in the home is not unusual. The process of using inhalants, too, is quick and relatively unobtrusive, so users can usually effectively hide their behavior. The effects of intoxication are also brief, so changes in behavior can be difficult to spot.
Warning signs of possible inhalant abuse include:
- Runny nose
- Red eyes
- Chemical burns around the nose and/or mouth
- Unexplained chemical odors
- Chemical stains on clothing or on the user’s face
- Slurred speech, lethargy, or signs of alcohol-like intoxication
