Addiction is the addict’s disease; co-dependency is the family’s disorder.
In the last article we discussed enabling an addict and briefly touched on the overlapping likelihood of an addict’s family’s needing co-dependency recovery.
In this article we will be exploring co-dependency and detachment with love.
For those out there who have let their New Year’s resolutions slip, or who are trying to maintain or start a life free from drug and alcohol abuse, here are a few more “realistic” resolutions that the recovering addict should consider.
For many years addiction was seen as an addict’s weakness or personal choice.
Sadly, there are still rehabilitation centres, some local, that refuse to acknowledge the years of careful research verifying that addiction is a chronic disease.
As with any chronic illness/disease (diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure) the threat of relapsing back into addiction will always exist.
Making the decision to seek help for your addiction requires a great deal of strength and courage.
Unfortunately it is not the only decision you'll have to make.
There are a number of questions you need to ask and rehabilitation procedures you need to check in order to guarantee that the rehab you choose is not just a "luxury guesthouse" pretending to be a "luxury rehab centre".
