Relationship Addiction Recovery

QUESTION: How do I begin relationship addiction recovery?


The first step in relationship addiction recovery is recognizing the addictive behavior. This would involve a close dissection of your present and past relationships to see if you fall under the characteristics of an addictive relationship.

Addictive behavior, if left undiagnosed, could lead to more aggressive and potentially dangerous conduct for yourself and others. This is harmful to your mental health also. A relationship addiction is a cry for love that has been suppressed or abused in our past. The recognition of our spiritual lack begins a journey to find the real meaning and purpose for our life.

The next step would involve seeking professional help. A good start would be to ask your general physician to recommend a professional. Another way is to look into the non-profit organizations that are always willing to help find someone to address your needs. A third avenue is to seek out spiritual leadership from a local Bible-teaching church. Many churches have counselors available for little or no cost.

A well-grounded Bible-believing church is a great place to start on your journey towards spiritual identity. God is the source and strength of all life. He is very willing to help you on your way to a more centered, normal position on love. He is the author of love and the best representative.

It’s not important to be free of addictions before you seek God. He says ‘Come as you are’ but also, He will not leave you in the condition in which He finds you.

Ask Him. Help is always a prayer away.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
