Trauma and Addiction Recovery: How to Work with Couples


Wednesday, December 1, 2021 @ 3:00-5:00pm ET

We know that relationships impacted by addiction have divorce rates four times higher than average. Even after beginning recovery, relationships are still at risk. Trauma history is likely to play a key reason. Partners impacted by addiction often have a long history of trauma that may precede their relationship. Added to previous trauma, there is the trauma of addiction and the trauma of recovery, an often overlooked dynamic. This webinar provides tools for addiction professionals to assess and address trauma from a relational perspective by providing three interventions designed to help couples to identify, normalize, and manage triggers. Helping couples manage trauma increases the likelihood of greater relationship stability which correlates with successful long-term recovery.
