"One of the primary goals of addiction treatment is for clients to be able to transform the cycle of shame and self-loathing into one of self-compassion and empathy for the suffering that underlies their addiction, and finally overcome it. When a client recognizes and experiences this truth, they have effectively neutralized the addiction’s grip over them."
