Los Angeles, CA – When both members in a relationship are struggling with addiction, recovery can be even more challenging than it is for singles. But when both are committed to sobriety, treatment can be twice as powerful – as a Los Angeles couple discovered at Muse Treatment Center.
They found the support they needed to effectively recover from addiction and recently left Muse a five-star review on Google. Chelsea O. called Muse’s Los Angeles center and the treatment she and her husband received there “honestly amazing.”
Muse is part of a network of drug and alcohol treatment centers with locations in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California. Its treatment options cover the full journey toward sobriety, from medically supervised detox to residential and outpatient rehab and continuing through post-treatment follow-up. Clients learn to develop new coping mechanisms for the life struggles that might have contributed to their addiction, to improve their chances of continued sobriety after leaving treatment.
Muse accepts couples, which is not always an option at addiction treatment centers. If both members in the relationship are not fully committed to recovery – not just their own but also to their partner’s – they can actually undermine recovery efforts.
But when both members are determined to help each other find sobriety, they give each other a greater chance of long-term recovery.
Muse offers comprehensive treatment to not only help couples work on their codependency and work toward sobriety together but also to help mend their relationship, improve communication and provide better support for each other during the early recovery process. In programs lasting 30, 60, or 90 days, couples learn how to cope with their own recovery while also developing ways to support each other. The goal is to help couples heal as they learn skills and strategies to prevent relapse in the years ahead.
Chelsea was enthusiastic about the experience she and her husband shared.
“The staff is so great!” she wrote. “My husband and myself were accommodated, made to feel comfortable, and got the treatment that was needed! Thanks to all the staff for helping this happen!!!”.
Emotional support is one of the most essential elements of recovery, and to have the most important person in your life support your journey can be a major weapon in your battle. When that person also understands what you’re going through because they’re experiencing it as well, the support becomes even more meaningful. No matter how positive and well-intentioned other people in your life are, they can’t match the understanding that an addicted spouse or partner brings to your treatment.
Couples also find healing for their relationship, which may be an underlying cause of their addiction. The addiction specialists at Muse know that substance abuse is often a symptom of deeper underlying issues. Couples rehab can help people uncover these underlying root causes and resolve them more effectively than if they were just getting treatment for substance abuse. That doesn’t mean couples in recovery will never fight again, but they’ll have therapists available and coping skills acquired to help them through it.
At the same time, however, each member in the relationship is treated as an individual. Although couples get therapy together, each needs to focus on their own needs and will also get individual therapy. Couples receiving residential treatment are housed separately in same-sex accommodations for a period of time, to allow them to focus on themselves and their own recovery early on.
Together, couples can find the addiction solutions they need at Muse. For anyone struggling with addiction who’s ready to seek help, call Muse Treatment today at 800-426-1818 or visit them online at www.musetreatment.com.
