Love Addiction Treatment

Addiction is a mental health disorder that involves engaging in a rewarding stimulus despite adverse consequences. Addiction can refer to things such as food, drugs, or alcohol, but it can also refer to behaviors such as gambling or engaging in social media. Although the concept of “love addiction” may not actually harbor all of the characteristics of a true addiction, it is still a psychological compulsion that involves biochemical reactions in the brain. And, not unlike other addictions, love addiction often manifests in response to unresolved issues with oneself and one’s past. 

Love is a wonderful thing, but it can also be complicated. If the object of your affection is causing you pain and sadness or, if your relationship is causing you to ignore other important aspects of your life such as your job, family, or social life, then it’s important to seek help. At Blair Wellness Group in Beverly Hills, we specialize in addiction, depression, relationship problems, and instances where all three of these come together to negatively impact a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing. To get your life back on track and stop the cycle of love addiction, we encourage you to contact us for love addiction treatment in Los Angeles.

What is Love Addiction

As with any other addiction, love addiction is a maladaptive behavioral pattern where a person engages in codependency and the addictive behavior despite its many negative consequences, impacting their life, work, and health. When the desirable feelings of love activate the brain and cause the production of feel-good chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin, it can cause a person to want more of those feelings —and sometimes willing to do whatever it takes to replicate those feelings. Love addicts become enamored with the positive feelings they get as well as the possibility of having the perfect relationship that will provide them with those feelings long-term. Unfortunately, this unhealthy obsession can make someone value their partner despite negative dynamics, underlying codependency, and absence of healthy boundaries.

Causes of Love Addiction

Love addiction is rooted in unhealthy childhood relationships that involve parental neglect, traumas, insecure attachment with caregivers, and inadequate nurturing. If a child’s primary need for love, security, safety, and validation were not met in childhood, it often manifests in their adult relationships as a longing for the ideal and unrealistic partner to fulfil the same emotional needs they were denied as a child. Love addicts tend to be attracted to and attract partners who are not capable of emotional, mental, psychological, or physical intimacy. This creates an unbalanced and toxic relationship where one person clings to their partner in an effort to get the love and validation they yearn for while the other partner withholds intimacy, is abusive, or uncaring.

Another potential cause of love addiction is childhood trauma. Besides being neglected or even abandoned, children who are the victims of physical, emotional, or verbal abuse are more likely to seek love and approval from their adult relationships. 

Finally, children who grew up in households where they saw a parent or trusted adult seek out multiple relationships or experience codependency are more likely to engage in those same behaviors as an adult.

Common Signs of Love Addiction

Love addiction can manifest in many ways, but it’s usually characterized by unhealthy or unrealistic thoughts and behaviors surrounding romance, sexuality, and relationships. Some of the common signs of love addiction include:

Consequences of Love Addiction

Love addiction can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life. It’s not just about feeling good or being in love, it’s about the preoccupation with finding someone who can fill the void left by childhood neglect or abuse. Each time a relationship ends, it only fuels the pre-existing feelings of rejection, being unlovable, and ultimately feeling as though you just don’t matter. In addition to these painful emotions, love addiction can come with many other potential consequences including:

Treatment for Love Addiction

Love addiction is a complex set of maladaptive patterns and behaviors that adversely impacts your mental, physical, and emotional health. As with the treatment of any other addiction, successful love addiction treatment relies on seeking timely interventions from a licensed clinical psychologist and a qualified mental health expert. Seeking proper interventions and treatment for your love addiction is the best way to combat relationship challenges; sift through past struggles, traumas, and abuse; and learn how to set healthy boundaries, gain recovery, and heal your relationships.
