Addictions are hard on marriages, but the good news is that a marriage itself can be a couple's most powerful tool in healing any addiction. Whether it's an addiction to substances, food, pornography, spending, social media, screens, or work, couples can learn how to work together against the damaging effects of any addiction.
The secret to healing the addiction and the damaged marriage lies in understanding the truth about attachment and how it makes us vulnerable to substitutes for human closeness. When there are appropriate boundaries, accountability, honesty, and safety in the relationship, then the marital attachment can begin to heal.
In this workshop, couples will learn:
- Why addictions damage marriage
- Steps couples can take to begin repairing the marriage
- How couples can build deeper intimacy as they rebuild trust
