5. Definition  Codependency describes a type of relationship in which  One partner defines his or her worth or goodness based on someone else  The codependent person often chooses relationships in which the other person needs to be rescued, thereby making himself or herself indispensable.

6. The Mantras  “I don’t understand why she refuses to change. I have done everything for her.”  “Helping someone who doesn’t want help is an exercise in futility, but what are you supposed to do if you don’t help?” Recovery & Resilience International in partnership with AllCEUs.com Co-Occurring Disorders Recovery Coaching Curriculum
7. Co-Dependency as an Addiction  Tolerance  Need more of the same substance/activity In a codependent relationship, as time passes, the codependent’s identity becomes increasingly defined by the relationship with the other person  Withdrawal  Not getting the substance, being around the person results in physical or psychological withdrawals When apart from or unable to control the other person, the codependent experiences extreme anxiety and/or depression
