Pros and Cons of Getting Sober With Your Partner

You and your partner do everything together, and now you’ve realized you both have a problem with drugs and alcohol. After taking some time to review your options, you both decide it’s time to get sober, which is great news!  The bad news is that your collective drug and alcohol use has likely caused or deepened problems within your relationship.  It can feel overwhelming to begin working on getting sober and working through a relationship in crisis at the same time. You might be wondering if couples can go to rehab together.  At Laguna View Detox, the answer is yes, and we’re happy to welcome you to our couples’ drug rehab. 

Can Couples Go to Rehab Together?

The short answer is yes; couples can go to rehab together.  Couples’ drug rehab enables you to support each other through rehab.  Recovering from addiction is hard.  Recovering from addiction within a relationship adds layers to the recovery process.  Couples’ drug rehab positions you both to get the individual treatment that you need without having to go to separate facilities.  You will be able to work through the different phases of early sobriety at your own pace and also find opportunities to connect in a therapeutic setting. You know how your addiction has affected you personally; couples drug rehab will help you both to see how your addictions have affected the other. 

Pros of Couples Rehab

Relationships are hard enough without adding the chaos that is often caused by drug and alcohol use.  Getting treatment for your addiction while working together on your relationship will help you and your partner build a solid foundation for sobriety.  By going to rehab together, you will understand what the other has experienced from detox to discharge.  You will likely not progress in precisely the same way, but you will develop common ground in rehab.  Instead of sharing your active addictions, you can learn to share your sobriety as a part of your relationship. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that couples who engaged in therapy together reported greater success in staying sober, improved relationships, and better family lives. Couples’ drug rehab also enables you to formulate a post-rehab recovery plan for continued sobriety and work through relationship difficulties. 

 

Cons of Couples Rehab

Going to couples’ drug rehab is not always the answer.  It is an important decision that requires an honest assessment of what you need from rehab.  Some may find that gender-specific rehab is more suitable because of past traumas or other circumstances. Others may suffer from mental health disorders that require more intensive and personalized therapy. You may find that you need rehab to provide you with a sanctuary from your relationship so that you can focus on your own healing before you begin to work on your relationship.  Attending rehab together may make you feel pressured to remain in your relationship, even if it is not the best decision for your sobriety and well-being.
