There isn’t a one-size fits all for this answer. The length of time it takes someone to become addicted depends on many factors including environment, gender, age, a person’s biology, genetic history, as well as the type of substances they’re using, the frequency and dosage. There also is a person’s sensitivity to drugs or alcohol that effects how quickly they become addicted. One person can use a substance many times with no ill effects, while another person may be addicted after a few uses, or overdose after the first use.
There’s no clear cut way to tell how fast a person will become addicted, but one determining factor is genetics. If a parent was a addicted to a substance, there’s a strong likelihood that their offspring will also have an addiction.
If a someone compulsively seeks and uses drugs or alcohol despite adverse consequences, such as physical problems from the substance, losing a job, becoming in debt or family problems, then they are probably addicted to that substance, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
Another sign is if a person feels sick when they stop using. Typically, people who are addicted aren’t able to stop using on their own, and require professional help.
If you are addicted to a substance and are considering treatment, consider traveling to another city or state for your treatment.
