You CAN say 'dependence'.
I'm dependent on drugs..
My dependence on heroin..
I don't see anything wrong with that.

You don't need to italicize the possessive; that's not part of the name. It would look wrong if you italicized the whole thing.
That isn't really anything to do with correct English though, it's just a matter of typing protocol.
