Understand Codependency counselling in Destination Treatment

Codependency occurs when one person derives their sense of self worth and purpose from another, causing them to become emotionally dependent on the other. It is often seen in family members or loved ones of the addict, but has also been seen in addicts themselves.

When a loved one is codependent, the signs seen are tryingto pleasethe otherat the expense of one's needs, emotional dysfunction attributedto the addict, ignoring problematic behavior or enabling behaviors such as covering up for the addict, financial assistance for their addiction, tolerating dysfunctional behavior, etc. When an addict is codependent, the signs are an excessive need to be around the loved one, inability to make decisions without them, feeling lost or vulnerable without their support, etc.

In Destination treatment, at the appropriate time in the addict's recovery, their loved one's are included in the therapeutic process. Individual and joint counselling sessions are taken in which each parties' expectations from the other and how to meet them is discussed.

In addition, through codependency counselling, trust building, communication, assertiveness and individual self growth and autonomy are also key areas of focus. Thus, by rebuilding bridges, a stronger social support for the person in recovery and for their loved ones is established through codependency counselling.
