Relationship addiction happens when one person invests themselves too deeply in another person’s life. A lack of a strong personal identity and the need to please others can create obsessive patterns that keep you from creating healthy attachments to others. Could there be an unconscious belief that you have the ability to do what you think others want or expect and that will earn you the love and acceptance that you desire? Learn about the 7 traits of relationship addicts, the kind of boundary problems that occur in these relationships, and why the “disease to please” is both destructive and changeable! Our special guest is Dr. Jean LaCour, a tireless advocate for people in recovery and founder of the RISE professional recovery coach program.
On this episode, we'll be talking to Dr. Chas Gant about the causes and solutions to addiction. Here are his initial thoughts to get us started...
"Over the years, various approaches to solving addictions have been tried with marginal success.
Historically, addiction was first thought to be a moral problem to be addressed by law enforcement. In the early 20th century, a psychological/psychoanalytic model was adopted, based on the poorly substantiated belief that addicts and alcoholics were simply medicating their emotional wounds.
Alcoholics Anonymous then emerged and achieved a modicum of success by promoting the 12-step philosophy, which bypasses immorality or psychological rationales as the cause, focusing instead on spirituality.
The psychopharmacological approach came next. It was based on the assumption that addiction is caused by a or Prozac deficiency in the brain. Substantial education and prevention efforts have also been made for decades.
For the most part, addictions are currently handled by some combination of these models, but with marginal success.
How can we do better? All of these approaches have made contributions, but none of them fully addresses the critical brain/body connection, so let’s explore the little known scientific facts about addiction.
The good news is, we now have the tools to break this hopeless cycle." Dr. Chas
