Is your husband or another man in your life addicted to alcohol or drugs? If so, you may want to keep track of your mental condition because it is very easy for you to be co-dependent on your spouse. However, if your spouse’s addiction has been going on for a long time, you may have already developed co-dependency symptoms, although you may not realize it yet. One way of knowing if you have this condition is by consulting with a mental health and addiction recovery expert at Merito. We will be able to discuss with you a proper co-dependency treatment program.
What Do You Mean Co-Dependency?
This is a behavioral and emotional condition that can affect your ability to develop healthy and mutually beneficial relationships with others. Being co-dependent on somebody is a learned behavior.
Others call this condition “relationship addiction” since it is often a one-sided, abusive and emotionally disruptive to the afflicted individual. This mental condition was originally identified years ago, as a result of many years of interpersonal family relationship studies. Many children and young adults become co-dependent by watching and learning from family members who manifest this mental illness.
