Its a pity they didnt explain more fully what they meant, as this does indeed sound an odd use of nthe term. They may have been suggesting that you were co-dependent with your alcoholic partner, but as you say, if you're in no curent major relationship, its hardly useful to describe you as co-dependent to yourself.
Anyway, I believe that though the short stints in rehab can be a useful beginning, they're never enough for anyone with a significant drinking problem, and personal counselling, preferably of a realistic CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) format, should be routine. Congratulations on your good sense in recogn izing the problem that was developing, and on starting to regain control of it
