Couples addiction treatment is often difficult to find when seeking Florida drug rehab. At Safe Haven, we understand that it is possible for loving, committed couples to recover from addiction together. Which is why our couples addiction treatment is here for you. Our trained therapists assist each partner with working on their own addictions. Likewise, they provide emotional support for the couple. Our individual treatment plans take both personal and relationship needs into account. In couples addiction treatment, our goal is to teach both partners to recognize the worry and patterns that lead to addictive behaviors. This is done as individuals and as a couple. As a result, couples can be more mindful and correct their behavior.

Florida Couples Rehab Clients are Housed Together

At Safe Haven Recovery, couples are housed together. We do this so we can address the disease of addiction on both an individual and joint basis. Furthermore, we are proud of our reputation for providing progressive care to couples in addiction. While conventional wisdom suggests couples to get sober separately, we believe by keeping them together is more reality-based. It also gives our therapists any opportunity to see how couples interact together in a semi-mundane environment.

Couples Addiction Recovery Takes Practice

Our Florida couples addiction treatment program addresses all aspects of recovery – physical, psychological and spiritual. Here, we teach partners how to avoid relapse with life skills training. Likewise, we encourage couples to participate as a team in activities. Some of these include;  physical fitness, art therapy, meal planning and music. This helps couples learn to spend their time together without drugs and alcohol. As such, rehab housing together allows a couple to practice the things that need fixing in a supervised environment. Similarly, couples can learn to identify patterns of behavior, and change them prior to returning home. Lastly, it creates an opportunity to help couples grow in sobriety, and strengthen their relationship.

Outpatient Couples Rehab Program

Once partial hospitalization care has completed, couples will transition to our intensive outpatient program. Rehab couples will remain together in a coed sober living environment. A couple will share a bedroom in housing with other couples. The first week will involve orientation and introduction to the recovery community. While there is more freedom in this level of care, supervision remains in place for the benefit of all in the housing community.

Typically, the couple will each have an individual 12-step sponsor (usually gender specific). Also, couples attend some of the same meetings as their partner, and some different. Like anything else, this provides well-rounded thinking. Couples also continue with their therapist who remains to support and challenge the couple to grow.
