In many ways, codependency is a bigger problem than addiction since it affects many more. Around each addict, there are 4-6 people who are affected, but in most cases only the addict receives treatment. Most people who grow up with addiction or dysfunctional patterns in the family develop problems similar to trauma, that need to be dealt with. People with unprocessed codependency issues often look for treatment when the injuries have manifested physically.
“Get up” is a book that describes the wounds and consequences among those who live with or have grown up with addiction in the family. The book offers tools for how to piece together your puzzle and understand yourself to recover from your codependence. “Get up” shows the path for healing your codependence through awareness, action and personal growth. “Get up” shows the way for reconciliation and forgiveness and how it is possible to move on in spite of deep wounds and broken relationships.
The book “Get up!” serves as the workbook in a system of study material and courses, where you can go more in-depth into your work with yourself and healing your codependency. There is also training for professionals who work with codependent people and addiction. Several thousand copies were sold in two editions in Sweden up to this date (June 2019). We hope the English speaking readers will find this first English edition just as useful.
