Dependent Personality Disorder & Addiction

Content Overview: Dependent personality disorder is a mental illness commonly associated with substance abuse. Learn more about the signs of a dependent personality, and how South Coast Counseling can help.

Characterized by the fear of being abandoned and a long-standing need for someone to take care of them, individuals with dependent personality disorder tend to lose faith in themselves and think little of their abilities and accomplishments. They start to feel bad for themselves and have little self-respect. Even simple tasks, such as making decisions, may be stressful and cause severe anxiety. Social relationships are very limited, with a focus on those individuals on whom the client is dependent.
