When you’re in a committed relationship, you do a lot of things together. So why would alcohol and drug recovery be any different? It’s not uncommon for couples to struggle with similar substance abuse problems and in some cases, people enabling one another makes things a whole lot worse. What good is finding help for one when the other is going to continue using and abusing drugs? When you find treatment together, it’s easier to provide help and support for one another while you both make strides towards reaching sobriety. There are a number of different options for treatments and therapies for couples and the only way to find the one right for your situation is to call i-Kare Treatment Center right now and learn more about the process.
Is Couples Addiction Recovery Effective?
At i-Kare Treatment Center, we understand that everyone’s conditional situation is different. Our integrated drug and alcohol treatment program is designed for devoted couples who wish to embark on their recovery together. Clinical group therapy targeting the unique issues couples face while attending a treatment program and while suffering from a disease of addiction is paramount to helping couples attending i-Kare Treatment Center in West Palm Beach attain what most tend to feel is only available to individuals seeking addiction treatment.
At i-Kare Treatment Center, we believe addiction is a family disease. Recovery is difficult enough when it involves one family member. When both partners in a relationship are trying to get sober at the same time, this creates additional challenges. We believe that it’s possible for couples to find sobriety together with the right treatment and support. As a result, we’ve created a special track for couples who meet our criteria and who are selected to enter the program.
