Those suffering from addiction have a difficult time recognizing the disease in themselves. When confronted with their behavior, people suffering from addiction might shield themselves by minimizing, rationalizing or blaming. Their denial and isolation can eventually lead to their death. Recovery begins by recognizing one’s denial. To succeed in addiction treatment and enter recovery, the first step is admitting you have a problem. Then, after you’re admitted to a rehab center, treatment can be tailored to your specific circumstances.
