What is Denial?

Denial is a defense mechanism that becomes a huge obstacle to recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. While outsiders can see the damage drug and alcohol abuse, the person with an addiction seems completely blind to ruin in their life. Both sides feel blame and resentment, making reconciliation seem impossible. Don’t lose hope. A person with an addiction can overcome their denial, and find effective treatment for their disease. Many have proceeded to, succeeded in, treatment after an well-organized intervention.
