Set Boundaries to Best Help Your Loved One Suffering from a Substance Use Disorder
Caring for someone with any sort of disease requires a high level of dedication, and as you care for your partner, family member, or friend with a SUD, you may begin to feel like you are losing your own sense of self. This role as caregiver can start to define you, and resentment or codependent tendencies may begin to surface.
When someone you live with decides to get treatment for an addiction, you may find yourself taking on a number of new roles, including helping with expenses, driving them to appointments, fostering their pets, or caring for their children. The weight of these new responsibilities can be heavy, especially as the primary or sole caregiver.
Codependency is a condition in which one person becomes overly dependent on their partner and begins to neglect their own needs. Setting and maintaining strict boundaries can help to mitigate this. Ensure you are prioritizing yourself and staying aware of your own needs rather than only theirs. Attending therapy or support groups can help to refocus your mind and avoid an unhealthy level of dependence on one another.
