Love Addiction Treatment

Love addicts have an intense need to be in a relationship at all costs. They are addicted to the rush of new romance. This makes them unable to cope with the normal waning of passion inherent in any long-term relationship.

Love addiction or obsessive love is classified as a type of compulsive disorder based on relationships. It can have its roots in early childhood emotional traumas like rejection, isolation, lack of love and not having needs met. This teaches the child unhealthy ways of relating to others very early on. Love addicts can approach relationships with unrealistic demands that cause them to experience constant fear, disappointment and co-dependency.

What are the signs and symptoms of love addiction?

Love addiction is a very insidious form of addiction, because the associated signs and symptoms are less overt than those produced by an alcohol or chemical addiction. Life as a love addict can be very difficult. Much like co-dependency, the addict feels the need to constantly please their partner in order to maintain a sense of connection. This means the addict rarely gets their own needs met. Love addicts crave the initial rush of passion that a new partner provides. Once the first rush is over, they become disinterested and start looking for another new partner. They can become highly promiscuous and are prime targets for sexually transmitted diseases. Love addicts are also more likely to feel emotionally unstable and experience intense mood swings. This can cause an intense fear of abandonment and may lead to stalking and domestic violence.
