Building Your Relationship After Rehabilitation Treatment

Posted by on October 8, 2020 in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

After your partner is discharged from the rehab facility, it's time to begin the process of recovery. This is an important step for both of you. If you don't make it a priority to plan out a new beginning for your relationship, the two of you are putting yourself at risk for additional obstacles moving forward.

It's difficult for a relationship that's been hit by addiction to recover immediately. It will take a good bit of time before you're able to relax again.

However, it's very possible to fully mend your relationship after addiction. Let's look at some ways to encourage your relationship's successful recovery.

Make Time for Couple's Therapy

Taking the time to schedule regular therapy sessions can make quite a difference in how well your relationship recovers. Contact Couples Rehabs, your therapist will work with both of you to help you learn additional methods of handling conflict and how to communicate in a healthy manner.

Identify Potential Triggers for Substance Abuse

Does your partner have a friend or family member that may have enabled their addiction to drugs or illicit substances? Does your partner work a job that is especially stressful? There are numerous ways that your partner could be tempted to relapse. Try to talk to them about these triggers and remove them where possible.

Brainstorm creative, fun activities that the two of you can enjoy together that don't involve substance use.

Spend some time visiting the zoo or aquarium, or get tickets for a special event that you and your partner might be able to enjoy together. Spend some time reminding each other what caused you to fall in love in the beginning.

Be Honest with One Another

Be willing to discuss difficult issues with your partner. Avoid making any subject off limits. Think back to the way that things were before the addiction started, as well as any changes that you'd like to make in the relationship. It's important to remember that change can't happen if you don't talk about it.
