Tips For Getting Sober Alongside Your Wife
If you and your wife have been struggling with addiction for some time, can you get sober together? Is there a treatment that will allow us to get sober together? How involved should we be in one another’s recovery?
At Princeton Detox & Recovery Center we provide medically monitored detox for people who have been struggling with an addictive disorder of any severity. While it is great to have the support of a spouse during your recovery journey, getting sober requires you to focus on your own individual experiences and work through any underlying issues independent of your partner’s. Addiction treatment is a time to focus on personal growth, heal past wounds, learn healthy coping mechanisms, develop a sense of self-esteem and grow as an individual. Only once we become the best versions of ourselves are we able to truly be there for others and work on our existing relationships. You might be tempted to stick by your wife’s side every step of the way, but try to recognize that the most helpful thing you can do is allow her to work on herself while you work on yourself.
