Patient discussion about confirmation

Q. How can I confirm that? We have been in search for a bridegroom for the past one year and later we found one. Shockingly we heard that he is addicted to drugs. How can I confirm that?

A. It can be difficult to discern whether or not a person uses drugs if their drug use is only very sporadic. There may be no obvious pointers, unless the person actually appears to be intoxicated when you see them one time. This might mean an unsteady walk, sleepiness, hyper-activity, excessive talking, aggression . . . and so on, depending on which drug has been used. Even when a person is not intoxicated, problematic drug use nevertheless usually exhibits a few symptoms: Preoccupation, Changes in behavior, financial problems, Physical deterioration, Secretiveness, new associations.

These are just a few common symptoms which may indicate that a person is using drugs. They are not definite, as every individual and situation of drug use is different. In general, new regular drug users undergo a change in their attitudes and behavior. This is likely to be most easily noticed by other family members.

A. The first thing that comes to my mind is for you and your child to have testing for heavy metals in your body. You would be amazed and infuriated at what you find in your body. In a child, heavy metals, such as lead or mercury,(and there are far more than that), can affect a child's cognitive ability, behavior, and overall health.
