Delbert Boone explores denial and discusses how many healthcare professionals often say that addicts are in "denial." According to Boone, if that were true, the addict would have no idea that their life is falling apart due to their drug use.

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.
