Codependency treatment in Bengaluru

Family counselling and codependency treatment are a vital part of our destination treatment program in Bengaluru. Codependency is a common phenomenon in which a spouse, close relative or friend of the addict is psychologically disturbed by the other's addiction because their self worth starts to depend on the other person's recovery or relapse.

They are caught in a cycle of hope and despair as they are constantly trying to find ways to make the other person live sober. This results in fights, emotional turmoil, anxiety, low mood and an overall toxic relationship between the two people.

Counselling helps to deescalate the tension and build a more positive relationship between both the people. Using techniques of assertiveness, Cognitive behavior therapy and family counselling, our treatment program aims to build a support system for the addict when they return from treatment and improve their interpersonal skills.
