Many individuals who are codependent do not recognize their behaviors until other individuals point them out or until they seek professional help. Codependency, like addiction, is a disease – an unhealthy state of being.

Treatment is often necessary for individuals to realize their codependent patterns and to develop healthy coping skills. AKUA Mind & Body is here to help! We provide effective treatment at our primary mental health facilities to effectively manage and recover from being codependent.

Addiction & Codependency

Many individuals who are struggling with a substance use disorder are codependent on a family member or loved one’s enabling behaviors. These “enabling” patterns (such as rescuing a partner, bailing them out, making and accepting excuses for their behavior, and constantly trying to fix problems) are used to ease relationship tension caused by drug and alcohol abuse.
