Co-Dependency Intervention is for individuals who are dependent on taking care of others first. This taking care of Co-Dependency takes on many forms and is often present in any addicted household. Co-dependency is characterized by a lack of self-care, self-esteem, inability to focus on self and need for crisis and/or chaos. During a family intervention it is common to address concerns of codependency within the household. Understanding codependency is vital to the families healing as a whole.
Co-dependency is a survival coping mechanism adapted by family members or loved ones of an addicted individual. Co-dependents often come from alcoholic or addicted households where one or more parents used or drank. This dependency, unless treated, carries on, into other relationships in the persons life. There is help for those with co-dependency through treatment and ongoing 12-step recovery in Co-Dependents Anonymous.
As mentioned throughout our web-site, it is not uncommon for us to refer family members and loved ones to treatment along with the addicted individual. For more information about codependency intervention please call our national helpline.
