Learn how to Deal with Codependency with Treatment

Codependency is defined as an unhealthy love and a tendency to behave in an overly passive or excessively care taking ways.  These behaviors negatively impact one’s relationship or quality of life and often involve placing a lower priority on your own needs while being excessively preoccupied with the needs of someone else.  Codependency can present itself in any kind of relationship; family, work, friendship, romantic, peer or community relationships.  It is extremely important to learn how to deal with codependency with treatment.  The Delray Center for Healing wants to do just that.

Codependency describes behaviors, feelings and thoughts that reach far beyond normal kinds of self sacrifice or care taking.  A perfect example is as follows: parenting is a role in which you’re required a certain amount of self sacrifice and giving your child’s needs a high priority.  Although a parent could wind up being codependent toward their child if the care taking reached unhealthy and destructive levels, most of the time, parents take care of their own needs in a healthy way which enables them to be a better caretaker.

The following are a few patterns and characteristics that one can compare against their behavior in an effort of self evaluation or in hopes to learn how to deal with codependency with treatment:

  • Difficulty identifying what you area feeling
  • Minimizing or denying how you truly feel
  • Compromising your values and integrity in order to avoid rejection or anger from others
  • Extreme loyalty to the point of remaining in harmful situations too long
  • Giving up your truth in order to gain the approval of others in an effort o avoid change

In order to learn how to deal with codependency with treatment, one must have an open mind and seriously want to feel better.  The Delray Center for Healing, conveniently located in South Florida, offers outpatient treatment programs that can help with codependency as well as many other addictions.
