Addiction and Honesty – Breaking the Stigma

Addiction and Honesty - the Bergand Group

Due to the highly stigmatized nature of addiction, addiction and honesty go well when hand-in-hand. Addiction and honesty play a huge role in breaking the stigma of addiction, as addicts often fear seeking treatment due to becoming stigmatized. In truth, anyone can become addicted to drugs or alcohol, including neighbors, family members and friends. In order to break the stigma, recovering addicts, and their friends and family members, should speak out so that others can gain the strength to get help.

Addiction and Honesty

Being honest as a recovering addict can be hard, but it is therapeutic and can also help others. In order to break the stigma and show society that addiction can affect anyone, recovering addicts can be honest about their stories. Whether they “hit rock bottom,” had an intervention, or sought addiction treatment, recovering addicts can share their journeys as a way to support those who are struggling with addiction.

In this touching clip from Stories of Hope, recovering addicts and their friends and family speak out on their journeys with addiction.
