Recognizing Addiction

Home / Addiction Help / Recognizing Addiction

It usually takes a lot longer for the addict to recognize a problem than it does for those who love them to notice. Addiction and denial kind of go hand in hand. Most addicts are convinced that they can discontinue their drug or alcohol abuse whenever they want. Even when the addict starts to realize the magnitude of their problem they will do what it takes to conceal it. Some families can be deceived because the addicted person can be quite clever when they have to be.
