Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Recovery Tips for Addicts

Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Recovery Tips for Addicts


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. Now let’s talk recovery. Approximately 1 in 40 alcoholics and addicts attempting
recovery for the first time will achieve 90 days clean and sober. Out of those approximately
1 in 20 will make it to the first year. Now, the big number is 95% of people who achieve
sobriety will never see long term sobriety, that’s why it is ultimately important for
you to recognize addiction and alcoholism at its early stages and get your loved ones
the help they need before it gets too late.

  1. how stupid cab you be! not once did you mention a sign or signal for identifying addictions. Only the demoralizing percentages once again. You are a moron!numbers are only valid when looking to find failure

  2. I thought you mentioned a great point…recognizing and getting help early on for an addiction is key to a much greater success in life!
    Keep it up!

  3. Yes I hate mention of the percentages, AA and NA are full of this. Gives the newcomer little hope. The beatings will continue until moral improves

  4. "If you find self-reform too hard
    In spite of your intense desire
    For lack of firmness to discard
    The habits that stink of the mire,
    There is no reason to despair,
    Try what you can time and again,
    Beseech your Maker to repair
    The faults and you in strength will gain."
