Addiction is many things, one of which is an unhealthy way of creating a connection. So how does the betrayed and the addicted begin to create a healthy connection?
Here are some of the highlights:
1. Addiction is an attachment disorder. We all have the desire for connection. When somebody doesn't have a healthy or secure attachment, they turn to something else to get that attachment (Could be drugs, pornography, masturbation etc.)
2. Connecting is not just about being happy. It's about experiencing all emotions together. And that creates intimacy and real connection.
3. Healthy relationship supports other areas of recovery.
