Unknown to most, the roots of all codependency lie in childhood trauma, which most of us have in one form or another. Pia Mellody, author of Facing Codependence and the head of The Meadows treatment center, identified the five core symptoms of codependence and how they spring from neglect, abandonment, or abuse in childhood. In this overview I’ll talk about how these roots flower up through the 5 core symptoms and into process addictions, mood disorders, chemical addictions, and anxiety disorders, and how, if the roots aren’t tended to, these core symptoms and the addictions and disorders that spring from them can rarely be healed.
