“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” — ELEANOR ROOSEVELT

The impulse to please others, especially loved ones, is an incredibly powerful human emotion. Whether it’s your child, a spouse, a significant other or even a close friend giving of yourself can be a personally satisfying experience. However, sometimes unhealthy relationships can warp how we think about selflessness and love.

For those in a Codependent Relationship the boundaries of a healthy relationship are often violated, as you or your partner may feel inclined to change their identity and give up his or her needs to feel satisfied. Being in a codependent relationship is a learned behavior that means a lack of self-sufficiency, a one-sided pattern of self-sacrifice and the desperate need for approval. In fact, these symptoms all point to the possible existence of a personality disorder known as Dependent Personality Disorder.


RESILIENCE: Los Angeles, California’s Leader in Codependency Treatment…

  • What is Dependent Personality Disorder: In the last decade, researchers and clinicians have learned a great deal about the existence and consequences of personality disorders. DPD is one of the most frequently diagnosed personality disorders. People with DPD become emotionally dependent on other people and spend substantial effort trying to please others, often times in untold ways. People with DPD tend to display needy, passive, and clinging behavior, and have a fear of separation

At Resilience Treatment Center, our team of experienced clinicians offers treatment tailored to those suffering from dependent personality disorder by offering an integrative platform for treatment. Not only do we set the standard for this type of treatment throughout Southern California, but more we are always remaining ahead of the curve with regard to the newest approaches, therapies and available treatments.


  • Symptoms of Codependency / Dependent Personality Disorder: Many of the elements of dependent personality disorder are in fact quite common in everyday human interactions. Therefore properly identifying the existence of dependent personality disorder isn’t always simple. Nevertheless, the presence of pervasive signs and symptoms that can maliciously affect your life might be cause to seek treatment.

An important first step for those in need of treatment is that of receiving a proper, in-depth assessment by a qualified mental health treatment professional. In fact, this is probably among the more common areas in which many programs fall short, thus engaging in a treatment regiment that is ultimately not entirely suited to the client’s specific needs. Through its numerous facility locations in and around Los Angeles, California, the Resilience program offers a highly experienced clinical staff specifically dedicated to performing integrative initial assessments.
