We help you through this difficult time by creating a safe, comfortable place to explore your feelings toward yourself, your partner and your marriage or relationship.
We address how the addicted spouse’s behavior affects their partner and how the injured partner can understand and learn to support in a positive, loving way their spouse’s desire to conquer the addiction. You learn to set new boundaries and expectations with each other so you can go forward together and eventually have a healthy relationship or marriage again.
For a relationship to survive an addiction, it is equally important for the partner or spouse of an addict to get treatment for their feelings as it is for the addict themselves.
