Handling a relationship with a spouse can be difficult on its own without the strain of an addiction and recovery. Adding addiction into the mix of a union such as marriage throws a wrench in what was the perceived plan for your lives. But there is hope repairing that relationship, should both parties put in the work to regain the trust that was once lost.
No matter how old your children are, they take addiction very hard and maintaining and repairing relationships with your kids can be tough. They didn’t ask to become the parent in caring for you, but in many addiction cases, we see kids taking on the role as the responsible party to keep the addicted parent alive and functioning. Reconciliation is possible with proper care and support.
Holding on to positive relationships with friends influences is important while in rehab and recovery. Friends that build you up rather than tear you down, friends that move towards your greater good rather htan pull you into the pit, and friends that want to see you do well and thrive are the ones worth holding onto. Even if you’ve burned a few bridges, they can be rebuilt.
The world doesn’t stop for anyone, and once you finish rehab and your recovery, you will go back to work and continue on with your life. Keeping up the relationship with work colleagues and friendly coworkers is important, even while in rehab. Disclosing only what you feel comfortable disclosing is key, and there are helpful ways to integrate successfully back into the life you previously had, without addiction present.
