Hi there and thank you for your question. My first thought is, "Well, of course he is still codependent, it's only been a month." I am a huge fan of Veteran's courts, family drug courts, and other alternative sentencing and recovery programs. Given that he is a veteran, I am wondering if his experiences in the military are also impacting his behavior That seems likely to me. It sounds like your daughter is attending to her own needs and I urge you to simply support her and her family as this is indeed a long process and there are likely many changes yet to come. I generally see milestones/improvements in 3 month increments after a person attains sobriety and I urge utilizing AA and NA to meet the needs that have only just begun to surface. Good luck and blessed be!
