Addiction in Relationships

The topic of how to handle addiction in a relationship can be confusing and conflicted. There is a lot to sort through with a partner who’s addicted, and it forces couples to think about where they stand with addiction.

I was recently invited to be a guest on a wonderful podcast that deals with relationships called Ready Set Love. In the interview with John Howard, we covered common questions and issues that come up in relationships. Things like:

  • Who is responsible for the recovery of a person with an addiction?
  • How can a partner help?
  • What to do about the conflict, and how to think about addiction together
  • How to speak to an addicted partner who’s resistant to care

If you are in a relationship and looking to better understand how to handle one or both people being addicted, listen to this episode to learn helpful ways to think about and handle it.
