People in recovery face a multitude of challenges least of which is the fear of a relapse. The recovering addict and their loved ones soon learn that the complexities of addiction also extend to the approach they take in order to maintain long term sobriety. Living with a person in recovery means that your lifestyle and actions can have a direct impact on whether they relapse or not. As such, it is important to understand what is involved in the recovery process and what you can do to support rather than sabotage a recovering addict’s effort to stay clean and sober.
Helping someone to say sober after experiencing addiction is about being realistic and paying attention to the things that does not support their well being. However, it is also important to remember that ultimately, the person in recovery must take responsibility for their sobriety. Being invasive or overbearing by watching and second guessing their every move may do more harm than good. If they do end up relapsing, it is important that they deal with the consequences.
