From the Outside Looking In, Addiction Can Seem Like A Black & White Issue

An observer sees an individual battling a disease, and assumes that the clear solution is treatment. After all, they may reason, you would get the care you needed if you had a physical illness — why not do the same for a substance use disorder? Friends and family members of an addicted individual may feel hurt or confused when their loved one avoids or refuses treatment, or when the individual goes through a relapse. To them, it may appear as though they are not even trying to get better.

Those who have seen the reality of substance use disorders, however, know that asking for help and getting treatment is far more complex than it looks. The compulsions of addiction make it much harder to consciously choose the path toward sobriety. What’s more, the road to recovery can seem long and full of obstacles. From the view of an addicted person, getting treatment may look like a lifelong commitment of time and effort that is not even guaranteed to work. They may feel discouraged and overwhelmed — negative emotions that only serve to maintain the status quo of addiction.
