Codependency 101: Basics of Addiction, Grief, and Recovery

Codependency-101---Large-Cover“Codependency is the hardest addiction for maintaining sobriety. The type of sobriety [we are referring to] is behavioral, not chemical. So what is the drug that codependents ‘fix’? It is the drug of drama; the drug of being involved in other peoples’ problems.”

~Patricia Bradley-Bates, M.ED., LPC, LISAC

*Note: This is our first e-book, a basic but thorough look into the condition of “codependency”. Many of you have privileged us with¬†the details of your own personal struggles, and asked for more information. Can’t wait to hear what you think!
