A major challenge in getting help is Denial. Denial about what?

  • Denial about the seriousness of the addiction your loved one is suffering from;
  • Denial about your inability to control another person and fix their addiction; and
  • Denial about how unmanageable your life has become in trying to control and fix what is not in your control, and
  • Denial about how Codependency has affected your physical and emotional health as well as damaged your relationships.
