How to Talk to an Addict in Denial

What do you do when it is glaringly evident to everyone else that there is a problem? How do you confront the elephant in the room without making that person become defensive?

When you're interacting with someone who's in denial or needs to change something you need to approach the situation casually. The whole goal here is to interact with someone in a way that's going to get them to bring that wall down.

In this video, I'll show you how to talk to an addict in denial in a way that will not only make them open to what you have to say, but they'll even SEEK YOUR ADVICE! I'll teach you how to build trust and credibility all at the same time. Ultimately, you'll be able to use this credibility to convince someone to take steps toward recovery.

These are the essential elements at getting someone to take their wall down and adapt them to your situation and if you'll do these things it will work in pretty much any situation.
