In this episode of Sex, Love, and Addiction, Dr. Rob presents the second half of his discussion about Prodependence. Dr. Rob discusses how we can better navigate and not stigmatize loved ones of addicts and other troubled individuals. Instead of blaming and shaming them, we can recognize they are in crisis mode and need to be treated as such. Dr. Rob says he is tired of seeing spouses and partners being labeled as ‘codependent’ and then blamed for a loved one’s problems when they are going through a completely natural crisis reaction.
