Attachment Disorder

Attachment disorder is a condition where a child cannot establish a healthy attachment with their parent or caretaker. Since children with attachment disorder have been disrupted in their younger years, they often experience impaired relationships in the future. These children might face developmental delays and struggle relating to others. 

Even though attachment disorder is considered a childhood disorder, it can have significant effects in adulthood, especially if the condition has been left untreated or treatment was not successful. Also, adults with children who have attachment disorder may face a variety of lifestyle stressors.

Symptoms of Attachment Disorder

Attachment disorder affects adults in different ways. Some of the most common symptoms include: 

  • Withdrawal from connections
  • Inability to maintain healthy platonic and romantic relationships
  • Difficulty showing affection
  • Anger and control issues
  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Lack of a sense of belonging 
  • Feelings of emptiness

Since adults with attachment disorder lack a positive sense of self, they often struggle to fully experience relationships. These may be relationships with friends, romantic relationships, and professional relationships with co-workers. Oftentimes, they avoid physical intimacy, lack empathy, and are reluctant to express their feelings to others.

Treatments for Attachment Disorder

The good news is attachment disorder in adults is highly treatable.  At Compassion Behavioral Health, we offer a variety of treatments for patients with attachment disorder including: 

Drug or alcohol abuse is common with attachment disorders. Therefore, we offer treatments that target both conditions. Between our Substance Abuse Treatment Program and a Mental Health Treatment Program, we can effectively treat both disorders simultaneously.


Causes and Risk Factors of Attachment Disorder

Attachment disorder in adults is the result of unresolved attachment issues one may have experienced in their childhood. These issues have made it difficult or even impossible for individuals to develop and maintain healthy, stable relationships in their adult years. 

This condition is common in those who have been in foster care, lived in orphanages, faced abuse, or have been taken away from their parents or primary caregiver after they’ve established a bond with them.
