How To Identify Substance Abuse Issues

“We primarily trade in nighttime and in events that facilitate socializing, of which taking substances goes hand in hand. I literally struggle to think of the last event that I attended that didn’t have booze flowing through it…”

-Ghibli (DJ)

The day-to-day grind of a career in music can often lead to feelings of loneliness, irregular wake/sleep hours, demanding travel schedules, extended periods of time away from family, friends and support networks, financial instability and intense competition   Combined with the adrenaline of performing, after-show gatherings, late nights, and pressures to perform, it’s no wonder so many in the music industry rely on substances to cope with the rigors of such a complex lifestyle.  

But when does using become a problem?
