Addiction and Relationships
Personal relationships inevitably suffer as a result of addiction. This is true for a host of reasons. Those who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and stuck in a cycle of addiction have a tendency to isolate themselves and can become distant and disengaged from family members. In some instances, people will have lied or stolen from family members or friends in order to fuel their habit. The lines can become blurry. It can be challenging for people to separate the person they know and love from the disease that is addiction.
Finding ways to repair relationships is an important part of the recovery process. It can be healing for individuals who have had their lives devastated by addiction to begin to prove to friends and family that they are committed to a new life trajectory.
The Need for Support in Recovery
In treatment, clients learn life skills that help them improve coping mechanisms and manage high-risk triggers to better navigate real-world situations. These skills are essential in order to maintain sobriety.
Evidence suggests that individuals who have adequate family support are far more likely to stop abusing substances, remain in treatment, avoid relapse, and stay sober. This is true both for families and couples without children. Family counseling and support help those in recovery embrace their new sober life and learn effective communication strategies that improve their ability to engage in healthy ways.
