1. Denial

Many are in denial about the effect that their addiction is having on their own life and also their families’.

2. Fear

The unexpected is always scary. And many who consider treatment are afraid of what is to come. Detox can be emotionally and physically uncomfortable. Therapy can uncover painful memories and feelings that have been buried for years. And a lifetime commitment to sobriety can be overwhelming.

3. Shame

Due to the stigma that surrounds addiction, many people see it as a moral failing.
