Codependency counselling in Los Angeles

In Codependency, a close one (friend or family member) to the addict can become emotionally dependent on the addict, deriving their sense of self worth and purpose from the other. In trying to help the addict, they enable the addict by covering up for them, giving financial support or putting the addict's needs above their own.

This can enable the addiction and create stress or guilt in the addict which further pushes them into addiction or other mental health issues. The addict, in turn also becomes dependent on the loved one for their emotional needs and this creates a toxic relationship between the two parties.

In codependency counselling, we aim to rebuild the relationship between the addict in recovery and the loved one by individual and joint therapy sessions. Trust building, communication, assertiveness and learning to fulfill one's own needs while supporting the other are some of the key areas in codependency counselling.
