a Recovery Place resource for addicts & their families
While engulfed in the chaos of alcohol and drug addiction we often lean on our trusty friend…the friend that makes excuses for our wrongdoings, that makes us feel better when we are down on ourselves or our loved ones—our mistaken friend, denial.
Getting trapped in denial about yourself or your loved one struggling with addiction, although damaging to addiction recovery, is a normal trend. We want to help you recognize those damaging traits and work through your denial toward acceptance and ultimately to successful addiction recovery.
As a family member of someone struggling with addiction it is just as easy to slip into the realm of denial. The family roles in addiction include understanding both the addiction and the defense mechanism of denial and we want to guide you down that path.
Addiction is complicated, destructive, sometimes messy, and touches the lives of everyone. It is imperative to break yours and your loved ones denial about this devastating disease to work towards addiction recovery. Through our family addiction programs we will guide you and your loved one struggling with addiction every step of the way.
Denial, most simply defined, is when you reject a painful truth, even when there is overwhelming evidence in front of you.
Examples of Denial
Addicts and their families use denial as a strategy to explain addictive behavior.
Effects of Denial
Like a cancer or other serious disease, addiction and alcoholism don’t go away because you ignore it.
