Addiction recovery is different for everyone who goes through it. Each person has a unique set of personality traits that might make it harder or easier to recover from addiction. Addiction treatment will help people identify which personality traits are holding them back.

People who tend to hold onto grudges are not likely to move past addictive tendencies, especially when it comes to forgiving themselves. Those who do not like committing to rules or placing restrictions on habits are going to find it difficult to overcome addiction.

Whether you’re just barely trying to curb your addiction or you’ve been fighting it for years, it’s important to know how your personality can actually help you recover from addiction.
