Delbert Boone explores denial and discusses how many healthcare professionals often say that addicted people are in “denial.” According to Boone, if that were true, they would have no idea that their life is falling apart due to their drug use. People with addiction know they are in trouble and they fight desperately to give you reasons why.

If you listen closely you’ll discover that what we often label as “denial” is actually an “alibi.” Boone explores the differences between “alibi” and “denial,” and explains that understanding these differences can impact treatment outcomes. Boone offers proven techniques for overcoming denial.
