Hope By The SeaA comprehensive, accredited addiction treatment center with dedicated programs for every circumstance.
Celebrate Hope features a Boundaries Workshop as part of the core components of our Christian Drug and Alcohol rehab programs.

Many addicts and alcoholics also suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD); this is one of many types of dual diagnosis or co-existing disorders. NPD is defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.”
In simpler terms, it’s someone who thinks too much of himself or, to the other extreme, to low of himself. The narcissist is often described as turning inward for gratification rather than depending on others and as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, and prestige. Narcissistic personality disorder is closely linked to self-centeredness.
The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous describes the main problem or the root of the problem, as self-centeredness and selfishness. And based upon these all self-consuming thoughts, fear begins to drive one’s behavior into absurd and often times self-defeating patterns of living; it leaves one depressed and in the propensity for drug use or alcohol consumption. The vicious cycle will continue until one receives professional help.
A common characteristic of the narcissist is poor boundaries – whether self-imposed or set by others – and a lack of respect for the boundaries others have established. Addicts often feel, “that doesn’t apply to me,” or the rules are just for others to follow.
To live a healthy, well-balanced life, it’s essential to learn how to set and abide by boundaries. A life without boundaries is a life that is out of control. Either we are being walked all over by others or we are the one's doing the walking on. As part of our Christian Addiction treatment, clients learn how boundaries help us distinguish God’s will from our own. Celebrate Hope’s Boundaries Workshop will answer the following questions:
