Relationships in addiction recovery
A workbook to help you manage new and existing relationships in recovery.
Should I start a relationship in recovery?
Establishing new connections and meeting new people in recovery is a positive experience. However, addiction professionals advise people in early recovery to steer clear from dating or any other kind of emotional attachments during the first year.
In this guide, we cover the facts:
• Risks of starting a relationship in recovery
• Tips on managing relationships
• Benefits of focusing on your recovery first
Here, we review the common outcomes of getting romantically involved with someone while in recovery, and help you decide whether it’s a good choice for you. Then, we invite you to complete the decision making worksheet at the end.
We hope you find this EBOOK to be a valuable resource in your recovery process.
