Am I Enabling My Loved One's Addiction?
Akua Mind & Body has just released a new article and video on Enabling a Loved One with a Drug or Alcohol Addiction.
When friends and family do not disengage themselves from their loved one's emotional manipulation and when they help him or her maintain distance from their reality, they become enablers. Until the people closest to the addict stop enabling him or her, meaningful and life-saving interventions will not be effective and the addict's behaviors will not change. Do you find yourself….
· Justifying your loved one's behavior by blaming yourself or situations?
· Cleaning up "messes" (social or physical) left by your loved one after he or she was intoxicated?
Rational detachment allows you to prioritize yourself, regain your autonomy, protect yourself from the negative consequences of your loved one's actions, and provide empathic support for your loved one. To view the video visit: https://www.youtube.com/
