How To Rebuild Trust In Addiction Recovery

  • by Admin

Addiction causes turbulence in the Family. A study proves that a couple dealing with addiction have four times the risk of divorce than those who don’t. The damage that people cause due to addiction is major and beyond repair. No matter how hard you try, your partner wants to call it quits because for them it might be impossible to forgive or trust you again.

It’s important to realize that you can’t expect to get back the same relationship you had prior to your addiction – after all, there’s no changing what’s happened or forgetting the hurt and anger. You can create a new marriage, however, that’s based on mutual support and respect, solid communication and trust – but doing so will take time and effort on both your parts. Similarly, chances are good that you’ll need to work on any unresolved issues and problems your relationship had prior to your addiction.

Each day of recovery is one more brick in the foundation of a new reliability that the family will come to trust and believe in. Each day sober speaks louder than a thousand promises. – Lara Okoloko
