Substance abuse does a number on an individual’s relationship with other people, particularly in marriage. Spousal relationships bear the brunt of alcohol and drug dependence.

Other couples-focused treatment plans can provide the patient and their partner tools to get things back to normal, support each other, and the patient’s sobriety.
