Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : How to Talk About Addiction


Hi, my name is John DePalma from New York
City on behalf of Expert Village I’m here today to help you recognize drug and alcohol
addiction. Many people think that just asking someone are you an alcoholic? Are you a drug
addict? Is sufficient, this is not the case, 95% of the people you ask that question to
will lie to you and say no and the 5% that tell you the truth will not follow it up with
any type of treatment or recovery plan. They are happy with who they are and will maintain
that lifestyle as long as you allow them to. Usually it’s most beneficial to try and find
out first hand if they are an alcoholic or an addict before approaching them with the
truth rather than ask them something that blunt.
