Addiction is a family disease where everyone has a maladaptive role to play. Individuals who suffer with Substance Use Disorders &/or cross addictions, often are able to maintain abstinence but do not know how to live sober, productive lives beyond putting down their physical/inner ‘drug’ of choice.
During the process of recovery from Addiction, the other members of the household are typically infected with the disease of Codependency as well. Although these individuals do not necessarily become Addicts/Alcoholics themselves, they take on other compulsive behaviors and struggle with enabling and rigid control. As they develop, they continue to engage in enmeshed, dysfunctional relationships with emotionally unavailable people due to their fear of abandonment. Though familial addiction and dysfunction is a very common cause, Codependency can also develop without the presence of addiction.
By providing a non-judgmental environment with a clinician who specializes in Addiction & Codependency, all individuals effected either personally or vicariously will be able to develop the tools necessary to live in recovery, experience freedom from self-defeating behaviors and last but not least, learn how to form and maintain meaningful and loving relationships.
