Amber says she has been dealing with a love addiction for quite some time and says it has caused her depression, losing a job, weight gain, and becoming too attached to someone too quickly. She says she deals with the constant fear that someone will leave or abandon her and always feels like she has done something wrong in her relationships. She also shares she has stayed in unhealthy relationships with men, out of the fear of being alone.
Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow notes that love addiction is not an official diagnosis, but he believes it is real for some people. He says in Amber's case, her love addiction might actually be an anxiety disorder rooted in a lack of attachment.
Dr. Dow shares he gave Amber a 40 question quiz from Love Addicts Anonymous, and she answered yes to 28 of them.
So how can someone dealing with a love addiction get the help they need? Dr. Dow says this type of addiction is treatable, and in her case, he believes cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy may benefit her.
In order to help Amber, Trauma and Beyond Psychological Center is offering her therapy once a week for 90 days, at no cost to her. More resources on love addiction can be found at Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous and Love Addicts Anonymous.
