CodependencyOur program is designed for all members of the addictive family system (but not concurrently). Our groups consist of people with a wide array of negative behavior patterns, including substance issues, relationship problems, sexual compulsivity, eating/food issues, workaholism, perfectionism, control and caretaking, misery and martyrdom, rage and anger, and anxiety and depression. We apply twelve-step principles to all of these self-defeating, unmanageable habits.
TraumaTrauma and traumatic experiences result from highly stressful events that shatter a person’s sense of safety, security and serenity. In many cases, trauma renders one helpless and vulnerable or hardened and volatile in a world perceived as dangerous. In many cases, traumatic experiences entail a threat to life or overall well-being, but any situation that leaves a person feeling overwhelmed and alone can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but one’s interpretation of the event. The more anxious, panicky and paralyzed a person feels, the more likely the persona has been traumatized.
