Couples Recovery Developmental Approach and the Sound Relationship House: A Relational Approach in Addiction Recovery
1. Improve conflict management skills
2. Develop a relationship recovery; supporting your partner’s recovery
3. Heal from the aftermath of addiction and move toward wellness as is individuals and as a couple
The goals of this workshop are to give a conceptual background of (CRDA) and the (SRH) theories and how to address some of the concerns many couples and or families experience in recovery. Recovery is a time of change and so it is important that everyone be able to change together. Healthy relationships matter in long term recovery. Just as therapeutic interventions and involvement in recovery are priorities in recovery, several studies suggest that the quality of family relationships is the most predictive variable…in maintaining successful recovery eight years after treatment.
