While some people might think addiction is a choice, the truth is way more complicated than that. And, despite common misconceptions, addiction recovery is never a straightforward or easy process, and it often comes with roadblocks.
Carolyn Connolly Liot, MA, LMSW, clinical director of The Dunes East Hampton, says that relapsing is common when a person is recovering from addiction, and it shouldn’t be seen as a failure.

“In recovery, it’s important that all areas of life are supported,” Liot says.
