The first step towards a life of total abstinence and recovery can be difficult for anyone battling addiction. For couples actively using together, asking for help comes with its own set of challenges.
If only one individual in the relationship is ready to commit to treatment, the likelihood of the other achieving long-term recovery is unlikely.
Although there may be several risk factors for couples who complete drug rehab treatment together, those deeply committed to their relationship and well-being have the potential of living a balanced and fulfilling life together in recovery.
For the healthiest, committed and, loving couple, the stressors of “life on life’s terms” can often create strain and disharmony within an intimate relationship. When adding substance abuse to the mix, issues can become magnified, driving a couple further into the depths of addiction.
Treatment options for couples that would like to attend addiction rehab together are minimal. Most treatment programs centre on an individualised process towards a new life in recovery.
Attending a rehab together is dependent on the couples history with substance abuse and whether or not they are both ready to embark on a new way to live. For the committed and willing, couples rehab can be healing and strengthening journey.
While treatment and recovery is often an individualised process, couple’s rehab programs take a ‘couple centred’ approach to treat substance abuse disorders. For a ‘couple’s centred’ approach to be beneficial and successful, commitment and willingness from both individuals are required.
Once admitted into the rehab facility, a couple will begin a medically supervised detox. The length of a medical detox will be dependent on their substance abuse history.
Once detox is completed, couples are gently integrated into the therapeutic inpatient community for 30, 60 or 90 days. A treatment plan designed by the clinical team will focus on individualised healing and recovery, as well as the relationship.
Attending and completing couples rehab is a courageous and crucial step for committed and willing couples looking to live a substance-free life. The journey does not end on graduation day.
Through ongoing therapy, 12 step support group attendance, aftercare programs provided by their treatment facility and their relapse prevention plan, couples can maximise their chances of remaining together and sober.
The team at Seasons Bali has carefully curated a drug and alcohol program dedicated solely to couples seeking recovery from alcohol, drugs or, other addictions. Our Couples-Centered Program, facilitated by a dedicated team of professionals, aims to break the cycle of addiction and co-dependency, improve relational dynamics and harmful behaviour and implement coping strategies to prevent relapse and achieve long-term recovery.
The team at Seasons Bali recently launched a smartphone application called ‘SeasonsCare’, accessible to clients who complete treatment in our addiction rehab. Seasons Rehab understands how crucial the first few months out of treatment can be for those new to recovery. The SeasonsCare app is the platform of which clients will participate in a twelve-week Aftercare Program, where we provide access to support staff and recovery resources.
