Dealing with drug or alcohol addiction and recovery can be a difficult process often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Those already dealing with alcohol or drug dependence may not have the coping mechanisms needed to properly heal during this time. Many mental health professionals often identify five stages of grief — denial, bargaining, anger, depression and acceptance. Since some of these emotions often overlap with the addiction process, treatment for both can often be achieved at the same time, but it takes special attention to these unique circumstances to obtain a successful outcome.
