According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 40 to 60 percent of those who have been through a treatment program for chemical dependency will relapse at least once. And some believe the relapse rate maybe even higher than that.

Addiction and denial go hand in hand. With that being said, though, you don’t have to let the lies you’ve struggled with keep you from recovery.
