The Relational Model of Addiction TM - Daniel Linder, MFT

“An inherent limitation of a strictly medical model approach is ignoring the fact that ‘pathological dependence’ implies that a relationship, one that is emotional and psychological in nature, has formed with the substance or activity (i.e. gambling, porn, etc.) The ‘pathological dependency’ is a pathological relationship, one in which there is a beginning, progressive emotional involvement and a synergistic interplay between dependence and denial.”

The Relational Model of Addiction accounts for pre-disposing conditions and etiology; applies across addictions including drug addiction and alcoholism, porn, sex, and love addictions and compulsive gambling; and has profound treatment implications for those in recovery.
