PROBLEM: In the last 10-15 years, it has been acknowledged that non-corrected co-dependence was an overburdening risk factor of drug abuse relapse after addict treatment completion. However, many issues are not cleared up yet in the area of co-dependence syndrome manifestations.

OBJECTIVE: To study the depressive manifestations in co-dependent people during their simultaneous hospitalization with addict.

STUDY MATERIAL: It included 130 empirically selected co-de¬pendent people from among spouses and parents of addicts, hospitalized simultaneously at MCN in 2001.

STUDY METHODS: Assess of co-dependent patient mental state, anamnestic data, original psychopathological tests, dynamic observation data, feedback questionnaires. Clinical/instrumental checkups were applied in cases of somatic complaints.

STUDY RESULTS: Out of 130 co-dependent people, 125 (96.2%) displayed depressive disorders. Mood disorder component with anxiety manifestations prevailed. Reactive depressive episodes were indicated in 58 (44.6%) patients, depressive disorders of neurotic character in 64 (49.3%), dysthymia in 37 (28.5%), neurogenous depression with obsessive-compulsive episodes in 18 (13.8%), masked depression in 9 (6.9%), and endogenous depression in 1 (0.77%) patient. 2 males (1.5%) had dipso¬mania episodes in anamnesis, 22 females (16.9%) and 8 males (6.1%) displayed unhedonia indications. Applied treatment included neuropsychopharmacological component in combina¬tion with psychotherapeutic correction of meta-image of drug abuse (MIDA)1 and co-dependence syndrome. Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressant were used in individual prescriptions, according to the character and extent of depressive disorders.

CONCLUSION: Depressive disor¬ders are obligatory (96.3%) accompanying indications in co-de¬pendence syndrome. The disclosed indications of depression make it necessary to be corrected adequately within in-patient treatment process. This is important for post-inpatient increase of addict remission quality and its duration shortening.
