The therapists at Relate Family Therapy & Counseling can help you address the issues that surround how addiction has affected your relationship. They can help you find your partner in that maze, as well as build a safe, supportive relationship along the way. There’s a lot of pain for everyone when a partner (or each partner) loses their way in addiction, but you can come out of it together.
Although addiction thrives in secrecy and isolation, relationships do not. It can be difficult to learn how to communicate again and how to trust after a partner has started to work through an addiction. There can be confusion, mistrust, and resentment that has built up over time. You might not feel like you can recognize your partner all the time, but you know the person you really know is in there somewhere. It just feels like walking through a maze to find them.
