Violating A Core Value

The chronic and progressive nature of addiction eventually leads the individual to violate one's core values as a person (Perkins, 1997). Motivation to change increases when there exists a sense of dissonance between one's ideal self and one's behavior (Festinger, 1977; Aronson, 1999). Individuals are more likely to make an argument for change when they begin to experience incongruence between their stated goals and their behaviors (Miller & Rollnick, 2002). A confrontation of the individual's incongruent behaviors may lead to increased defensiveness and discomfort with the change process (DiClemente & Velasquez, 2002).
