Treating the Chemically Addicted Couple Along the Whole Continuum of Care

With Sara Tigay, Licensed Counselor | March 26, 2024 12:00AM CDT

In early recovery from substance use disorder, couples often grapple with three key challenges. To address these struggles, various interventions are employed across residential, intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient services, aiming to provide comprehensive support for sustained sobriety. These interventions not only focus on individual recovery but also consider the dynamics within couples.

The goal is to create an environment conducive to healing and long-term well-being. In practical terms, participants engage in hands-on exercises, such as practicing interventions with fellow participants. This approach fosters a collaborative learning experience, enhancing participants’ ability to apply these interventions effectively and contribute to each other’s recovery journey.

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Identify three struggles couples face in early recovery from substance use disorder
  • Introduce three interventions utilized in residential, IOP, and outpatient services to support ongoing sobriety
  • Practice interventions with another participant to facilitate learning objective
