Have the passion and excitement faded from your marriage? Do you sometimes feel you are misunderstood, underappreciated, taken for granted, neglected, or mistreated? Have you lost yourself and wished you were free? Have you ever wondered if you are truly in love, or in love with the idea of being in love?
Return home from your recovery program with a new perspective and way of being in relationship. Many in a relationship grow to feel their life has become all about their partner. Do you feel responsible for your partner, worrying about him or her, picking up the load, always giving, feel tired or stressed? Are you working hard to keep a brave face, to look good for the neighbours, but are suffocating on the inside? Take the codependency quiz to see if this is a program for you.
You deserve help if any of the above relates to you or your primary relationship. Regardless of whether you or your spouse believe you have ‘a problem’, if you are willing to be open, you can improve the quality of any relationship. You will gain understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, commitment, and a renewed purpose and passion for your lives.
Committing to healing yourself is the best gift to your partner you can go home with. The best gift you can give your loved ones is a healthy you. It takes courage, self sacrifice, and the willingness to be vulnerable to transform a marriage.
Unhealthy or broken relationships will heal. Healthy relationships will deepen and be enriched.
Addiction can wreak havoc on relationships in the entire family system, leaving behind a trail of broken trust, emotional scars, and fractured connections. Regardless of whether the addict in the family gets help and starts living a new life of sobriety in recovery, the broken family relationships often remain fractured, also in need of help.
Also, early recovery can be a difficult time when one partner becomes sober and the relationship feels different and everything is changing.
