Addiction rarely affects only one person. It impacts your friends, your loved ones, and your work.
It can cause you to isolate yourself from others, be dishonest with family members and develop unhealthy relationships.
Codependency describes relationships where one person is overly emotionally or psychologically reliant on the other. It often involves one person enabling someone else’s addiction. Definitions of codependency can include sacrifice, suppressing personal emotions, and attempts to control or solve another person’s problems.
Codependency in a home or family environment can contribute to and sustain addiction. Recovering from addiction may involve healing codependent relationships too. Effective drug treatment must treat associated psychological and social problems like codependency alongside addiction.
At Cirque Lodge, our individualized rehabilitation programs treat the person as a whole to provide a holistic healing process. We treat any underlying conditions, including co-occurring disorders and codependency, alongside addiction. Our family program focuses on healing the entire family and fostering healthy relationships.
Recovery from addiction is a long process that requires determination, commitment, and help. Our family and loved ones are often our strongest source of support. Healing relationships and building mutual love and care help provide the foundations for a life free from addiction.
