Your journey to sobriety is about more than stopping alcohol or drug use.
While sobriety is a vital part of recovery, there are other aspects to recovery that can influence your success. One of these is your relationships.
Recovering from addiction calls for a holistic or ‘whole person’ approach to treatment. At Cirque Lodge, we offer intensive recovery workshops to help you tackle specific problem areas in your life. These problems may have contributed to your addiction and could increase your risk of relapse.
According to reports in Mens Sana Monographs, one of the most socially destructive symptoms of addiction is prioritizing drugs over the people in our lives (family members, children, spouses, partners).
Relationships have a powerful influence over our feelings and how we view ourselves. When we become addicted to drugs or alcohol, we often strain our relationships. Addiction is an all-consuming condition. It is progressive and gets worse the longer you go without treatment.
People often begin to seek addiction treatment when they realize that they have lost a meaningful relationship. This realization sometimes comes too late to salvage the relationship, as many partners leave after they realize that the relationship enables the other’s behavior.
At Cirque Lodge, you can participate in our intensive recovery workshop on relationships once you have completed a minimum of 30 days in residential rehab. Our workshop allows you to explore your feelings with the team and other clients. Prior therapy makes the transition from rehab to workshop as smooth and comfortable as possible.
