Codependency is a relationship that means there is an excessive emotional and psychological dependence on a partner. Often, this relationship requires the support or enabling of an addiction. This balance of both parties involved in a codependent relationship is harmful. Typically the person who is enabling the addicted loved one is labeled as the codependent. Recognizing the particular imbalance that occurs in a codependent relationship is vital for healing the emotional portion of the relationship as well as the substance abuse occurring in the other half.
Engaging in a therapy program like the one we offer at Kansas-based Sunflower Wellness Retreat can help teach the skills to set healthy boundaries. Through our programs, you and your loved one can recover from addiction. Addiction treatment and a family therapy program can help those in a codependent relationship be set free from unhealthy behaviors that restrict a relationship from flourishing.

Am I in a Codependent Relationship?
It may be challenging to know whether or not you are in a codependent relationship. If you find yourself relying on your partner for your value or purpose, you might be in a codependent relationship. Healthy relationships typically have a balance of togetherness alongside autonomy. This relationship allows each partner to fulfill themselves with their self-purpose. Some signs and traits you will find in a codependent relationship include:
- Emotional reactivity
- Fear of abandonment
- Communication issues
- Inability to say “no”
- Lack of boundaries
- The need to “fix” your partner
- Family dysfunction
The traits that occur in a codependent relationship can cause a significant amount of stress on those who are involved. Since substance abuse may also be at play, the pressure becomes even more significant. Those in a codependent relationship tend to forget their value which turns into a diminished self-image. Being involved in a therapy program can restore one’s self-image while also helping the addicted partner overcome substance abuse.
A family therapy program at Sunflower Wellness Retreat can create a healing model from which everyone involved can benefit. Our family therapy program can facilitate healing through the entire family system. When each family member can express their feelings, it can show areas within the family dynamic that require healing.
