Recovery is best with a combination of counseling and 12 step programs. There are many kinds of 12 steps programs some of these are explained by michelle including one specificually for couples.
We talked about three kinds of recovery. The recovery of the abusing spouse, the recovery of the spouse and the recovery of the couple with the complications related to deception and breakdown of trust.
Recovery is defined as the partner who has the substance abuse problem having a sponsor and working a program which must include couples counseling to attempt to have the partners reconnect in healthy ways.
Michelle talked about sometimes needing sober living environments to help facilitate the recovery of the home.
