Co-addiction refers to accepting addiction within the family. The addict is not criticized for his wrong choices and behaviors, but is tolerated.
A family often does not know how to cope with addiction within it and feels powerless and helpless to change anything. For this reason, it begins to adapt to the new situation and in this way it supports addiction.
