Breakthrough addresses the patterns and issues that some would identify as codependency. Unfortunately the term is often misused or misunderstood today. The word codependency used to describe individuals who lacked differentiation and independence. Today, it means loving too much, lack of healthy boundaries, or enabling. Breakthrough is grounded in attachment theory, and we believe that the problems presented by adults who want to improve their relationships and strengthen self-esteem are best viewed from an attachment lens. Their need is not to become more separate, but to grow toward mature and healthy connections. It is natural to love and care for others, and Breakthrough focuses on finding balance in loving relationships.
