I have a question regarding addiction

Would learning about how addiction works on a psychological level increase the chances of an addict overcoming their addiction?

It might help some people, especially those who are further along the 'stages of change'

As an example, addicts in rehab who are abstinent will be taught theory around their problems as part of the treatment

For addicts firmly in denial and having fun with their addiction, and not feeling consequences I would say it was less likely to  be able to get their interest and  attention
