Denial of an addiction to alcohol may be one of the most difficult obstacles for individuals with this condition to overcome, followed closely by a negative attitude toward treatment. Another roadblock to success is a lack of honesty between the person in treatment and the treatment providers. Sometimes, participants in a treatment program expect that rehabilitation will happen without their full efforts. Finally, the lack of continued effort after a treatment program can lead to a relapse. Ultimately, the greatest hope for successfully overcoming a problem with alcohol is to recognize the problem, seek treatment and invest completely in your own progression.
