Rebuilding a relationship after treatment for drug or alcohol addiction will take time. While you are in recovery, your family will also need time to heal from your addictive behavior. When trust is broken, it can be hard to mend your relationship. Respect your loved one’s boundaries. Showing that you respect their expectations and boundaries is a great start to mending a broken relationship with family and friends.
Drug and alcohol abuse affects family relationships and friendships. Loved ones struggle to understand and cope with your addictive behavior. Some people are affected differently by their loved one’s addiction.
These behaviors damage a relationship and make it difficult to trust again. Family members and friends can mistakenly enable their loved one. Family and friends go through an exhausting emotional odyssey with their loved one’s addiction. They need therapy for issues related to their loved one’s drug and alcohol abuse. Going to family or group therapy can help the healing process for everyone affected.
