Your partner’s addiction takes a toll on both of your lives.
That doesn’t mean you should turn your back on the person you love.
We’ve been told that staying with a partner who struggles with addictionwhether it be with drugs, alcohol, or addictive behaviorsmeans that we’re enabling their destructive behavior. That wanting to help them means we’re codependent, and that the best thing for both of us is to walk away from the relationship entirely. But is that true?
When Your Partner Has an Addiction challenges the idea that the best chance for recoveryfor the addict and their partneris to walk away. Instead, it makes the revolutionary claim that you, and the love you have for your partner, can be a key part of his or her journey to recovery.
Together, addiction activist and bestselling author Christopher Kennedy Lawford and psychotherapist Beverly Engel, MFT, take a fresh look at addiction and codependencythe latest research on what causes them and what the two have in common. Rather than treat addiction or codependency as disease or weakness, When Your Partner Has an Addiction honors the trauma and shame that often lie at their source and shows you how to use your love to combat that shame, allowing you to more effectively support your partner and heal yourself.
The research proves that, while you cannot fix” your partner, you can have a positive impact on their recovery. Whether you suffer from codependency, and whether your partner is already in recovery, When Your Partner Has an Addiction provides you with proven techniques and strategies to drastically improve your relationship and help get your partner the help he needswithout leaving and while taking care of yourself in the process.
