Behavioral Healthcare Treatment

Codependency Treatment

Codependency is typically learned, and it’s considered a behavioral and emotional condition. When someone struggles with codependency, it affects their ability to have a healthy, satisfying relationship. Sometimes also known as relationship addiction, codependency often co-occurs with other mental health conditions and addiction. The concept of codependency first came to light following the study of alcoholics’ family relationships.

Centric Behavioral Health is a mental health and addiction treatment center. We lead the way in codependency treatment as part of our larger, comprehensive rehab programs. We believe treating underlying mental health conditions and addiction simultaneously is essential to help you recover and thrive in your life.

Understanding Codependency

Codependency was first used to describe partners personally experiencing a chemical dependence on drugs or alcohol or people living with or in relationships with someone with an addiction. Since the introduction of the term by researchers, it’s also been identified in people who are in relationships with individuals who are mentally ill. The term can also extend to anyone codependent in any relationship outside of addiction or other co-occurring mental illnesses.

Signs of someone who’s codependent include:

  • An exaggerated feeling of responsibility for the behaviors and actions of other people
  • Confusion between pity and love
  • Loving people who can be pitied and “rescued”
  • Doing more than their fair share regularly
  • Feeling hurt when someone doesn’t recognize the effort they’re putting forth
  • Depending on others in an unhealthy way
  • Doing anything to avoid the loss of a relationship
  • Extreme fear of abandonment
  • Intense need for recognition and approval
  • The need to control other people
  • Not trusting oneself or others
  • Fears about being alone
  • Problems identifying their own feelings
  • Challenges adjusting to change
  • Problems with setting boundaries
  • Inability to make decisions
  • Lack of purpose outside of the relationship
  • Brushing off harmful behavior by a partner
  • Idealizing partners
  • Enabling the poor choices of a partner
  • Wrongly taking on blame
  • Being preoccupied with the thoughts or feelings of the other person
  • Not being willing to state their own needs

It’s normal for anyone to want the best for the people they love and support them when needed. It can cross into codependency when this need to care for others starts to cause harm or negative effects on one or both people involved. 

Someone who’s codependent feels like their identity revolves around taking on a self-sacrificing and caretaker role in a relationship.

What Causes Codependency?

When someone has a relationship addiction, it very often stems from other experiences in their lives. All of us are affected over our lifetime because of past family dynamics and environmental experiences.

Who you are today and how you view yourself in relationships with others also play a role in codependency.

A lot of complexity has to be unraveled in the treatment of codependency, especially when it exists along with another disorder, like addiction. Centric Behavioral Health understands these complexities, offering evidence-based approaches at our Florida codependency treatment center. Our codependency treatment in Florida is guided by research and facilitated by experts who understand these patterns and their role in addiction.

Codependency and Addiction

Codependency and addiction often occur along with one another in varying ways. It can be the person who takes on a caregiver role who ultimately struggles with addiction, it may be their partner, or in some cases, it’s both individuals.

First, when someone is codependent, they may struggle with self-esteem and self-image. They may feel like their needs are constantly pushed aside or have the world’s weight on them as they try to care for another person. These are contributors to their own substance use.

Someone who’s codependent may struggle with their identity and sense of self, and they might turn to alcohol or drugs to cope.  

Codependency is also associated with the loved ones of people who struggle with addiction or who are in recovery. Research has identified that addiction isn’t just about the addict; it’s also about the people around the addict who create their safety network.

If someone is in active addiction, they could have a person around them who’s actually enabling them by being too helpful or removing consequences from their actions. Codependent people may be drawn to relationships with someone in active addiction because they want to help or save them.

Both parties in a codependent relationship can also struggle with substance abuse and addiction, creating a cycle that’s nearly impossible to break without professional treatment.

Centric Behavioral Health is a codependency rehab center that can help if you’re also struggling with addiction. We are client-centric and offer a continuum-of-care approach.
