couples drug rehab: getting sober with my partner

You and your partner realize that you both have a drug and alcohol problem.  You both want to get clean and sober. You may also have a relationship problem that is likely caused or worsened by drugs and alcohol.  You’re not sure where to start, but you know that you want to do this together. You know that you stand a better chance of succeeding with a support system.  At 10 Acre Ranch, we understand a couple wanting to support each other through rehab together, and we have the programs in place to help you beat addiction together. 

What Is a Couples Drug Rehab?

Recovering from addiction is hard.  Recovering from addiction within a relationship adds another layer to the process.  Couples drug rehab enables you both to get the individual treatment that you need without having to go to separate facilities.  While you will both progress through the different phases at your own pace, you will find opportunities to work together in a therapeutic setting.  You each know how your own addiction has affected you, but we’ll help you learn how it has affected your relationships and your family. 

What to Expect at a Couples Rehab Center

While we understand your relationship’s importance, we also know the importance of each of you recovering as individuals.  You can expect to answer several questions about your drug and alcohol use during the intake process. You’ll also answer questions about your life at home and in your relationship. Your answers to these questions are the basis for your treatment plan, and it may not be the same treatment plan we create for your partner.  You will likely both start by detoxing, and you may do this in separate rooms.  As you both progress through the treatment, you’ll probably be back together again. We know you’re in this together and we’re here to support you and your relationship with treatment plans that prepare you to move forward to being a sober couple. While you will complete most of your treatment on an inpatient basis, you may also extend your work to continue together on an outpatient basis. 

Benefits of Getting Addiction Treatment With Your Partner

Relationships are complicated enough without adding the harm 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 foundation for sobriety once you leave rehab.  Being in couples rehab allows you to honestly know what the other has experienced from detox to discharge.  You may not progress at the same pace, but you will have similar experiences to share as common ground.  Instead of sharing your drug and alcohol use, you can begin to learn how 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 a more significant reduction in substance use and higher relationship satisfaction levels.  NIH also stressed the importance of having a continuing recovery plan – both for continued abstinence from substance use and relationship difficulties.
