Getting sober can be scary at first. Not only are you venturing into unknown territory, but you know almost every component of your life is about to change. About to change for the better, sure… but about to change nonetheless. If you’re currently involved in a relationship, you might be wondering if you can get sober with your boyfriend. Not just at the same time but potentially in the same treatment facility. The separation anxiety might be starting to set in and you figure so long as you’re together the process will be much easier.
At Pine Tree Recovery Center we believe that while it is beneficial to have the support of your loved ones, getting sober requires you to focus all of your energy on your own journey of healing. We recommend you undergo treatment separate from your partner so you aren’t faced with preventable distractions. Treatment is a time for you to heal past wounds, learn healthy coping mechanisms, develop self-esteem and a sense of self-worth and grow as an individual. You won’t be able to be there for your loved ones if you haven’t done the work on yourself. Once you have a solid foundation in your own recovery, then you are safe to work on your interpersonal relationships. At Pine Tree Recovery Center we specialize in medically monitored detox and intensive outpatient treatment. Our addiction services include intervention, case management, behavioral therapy, medication assisted treatment and aftercare planning. To learn more about our recovery programs, today.
