Concerned family member

I suspect my stepson is using crack or meth. Are there tell-tale signs of use?

He is an adult and does not live with us, in fact he's homeless and moving from friend to friend until he wears out his welcome, he's very close to living in the street, he's burned his bridges with us (lying and stealing). I know that what I've described is typical of an addict, but I'm wondering about physical signs or other signs to support my theory.

Crack and meth and cocaine gives the person ALOT of energy. Other signs can be, not eating, not sleeping. Huge pupils, and eyelids will be open really wide. Some people tend to talk ALOT as well. Good luck to you.
