Alcohol recovery and dating

When people enter recovery, they have taken a great step towards rebuilding their relationships, but it is unlikely to be enough alone to make everything perfect.

It can take years before a partner feels fully ready to forget the past and trust again.

Meanwhile all the attention will be on their newly sober partner’s adjustment, with hardly a thought for how they are coping with the transition.

It can be a tough time, but there are resources that can help.

When people are addicted to alcohol or drugs, it puts a strain on their relationships.

Their partners will have been harmed by the substance abuse, and it can take a long time for these wounds to heal.

When people become sober it opens up a world of possibility.
