Broadway Treatment Center offers a unique Drug & Alcohol Program Specialized for Couples

In the case of a romantic relationship, addiction truly is a family disease. This is especially true if both partners in the relationship are suffering from addiction. Broadway Treatment Center harnessed national attention for its program by the producers of CNN and social media giant Facebook. In Addition, JCHAO (Joint Commission Health Accrediting Organization) has also given Broadway Treatment Center its Golden Seal of Approval for their couples addiction treatment program. This certification is a symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe and effective treatment to our clients and their partner.We designed a curriculum that is specific to treating both partners in the same facility. Many times, rehab centers will make a claim that they treat couples who are struggling with addiction. While that may be true, the industry standard has typically been to separate couples and have them attend different facilities. Broadway believes that a couple should stay together during treatment and that is their best chance at long lasting sobriety.

Addiction and Relationships

Studies have shown that couples who are suffering from addiction, and then recover together at the same facility, are more likely to have lasting sobriety together. This has been seen time and time again by our clinical staff at Broadway. We specialize in helping couples, whether they are married or not, both recover from substance abuse at the same facility. It is imperative for both members of the couple to recover together so that they can provide support to each other and continue to grow together. The chance of relapsing after completing a couples addiction treatment program together go down significantly due to the fact that both individuals are sober at the same time.

“When a couple gets sober together, the numbers go way up in their favor of actually staying together”

Behavioral couples therapy for alcoholism and drug abuse:

Once an addict has become more balanced and functional as in individual, then it is time to work on rebuilding their romantic relationship through couple’s behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is offered as a part of Broadway’s comprehensive treatment plan. This type of therapy will help to heal and grow the relationship that was once tainted with addiction. The main premise behind CBT is teaching people new routines and eventually changing their thought process. Thoughts create feelings, feelings create behavior, and behavior reinforces thoughts. It is a cycle. There is a schedule involved in the process of how we implement CBT. The process of changing behaviors through counseling will help couples build new routines to change their thought process, feelings, and actions into new and healthy ideas.

Codependency and Addiction

Codependency is a frequent issue that arises when dealing with couples recovering from addiction. Enabling, caretaking, and denial are all signs of codependent behavior that is seen in a lot of relationships where addiction is involved. This type of behavior tends to exacerbate the cycle of addiction. Codependency negatively affects a newly sober relationship as well as the individual successes of the newly sober couple. Enabling behavior is the most common and the most harmful to a newly sober foundation. During couples behavior therapy these codependent behaviors will be recognized and corrected so that the couple is able to move on in creating a healthy relationship.

Common Symptoms of Codependency:

  • Low Self-Esteem
  • People-pleasing
  • Poor Boundaries
  • Reactivity
  • Caretaking
  • Control
  • Dysfunctional communication
  • Obsessions
  • Dependency
  • Denial
  • Problems with Intimacy
  • Painful Emotions

Can a marriage survive drug addiction?

Often times a marriage can survive when a member, or even both members, are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. Addiction alone causes quite a bit of damage to a relationship, on top of other factors that have caused relationship issues. When children are involved the process becomes more complex. The marriage can be saved, but it will take a little extra work. A substantial amount of time spent in CBT will be needed to repair it. As with everything in recovery there are no guarantees but there is hope. The good news is that once both partners are sober and in therapy, their relationship can be a strong positive influence on making their new found sobriety long lasting and the chance of relapse very slim.

Frequently Asked Questions about our Couples Treatment

  • Will we be separated during the drug and alcohol detox phase?
    At Broadway we believe that it is important for our couple clients to be together as much as possible. The time spent together while recovering strengthens their relationship as they grow and change together. It is always our goal to keep them together as much as we can, although there are some cases that would require a very brief separation period. This period would be short and only if it were deemed beneficial to the couple’s recovery. These situations would be discussed with the couple beforehand.
  • Can I participate in couples treatment if I’m married to an addict?
    At Broadway our intake specialists are trained to work with and accommodate each couple that calls us. There have been many different types of relationships that have found sobriety at our facility. We treat each call on a case by case basis and will make arrangements to accommodate all our clients. We have had spouses who are not struggling with addiction participate in treatment with their spouse. Broadway’s bottom line is to create a unique plan for all of our clients that fits their specific situation.
  • Do couples in recovery stay together once they are sober?
    Yes, the success rate of having a successful and healthy relationship after completing our couples addiction treatment program is very high. Our clinicians have found that when couples are allowed to go through the entire treatment process together at each other’s side that they have a much better chance at staying together once they are sober. Growing, changing, and healing through such a transitional time really strengthens the bond of the relationship and allows for unlimited support.
  • Does Broadway provide relationship counseling?
    Broadway Treatment Center does provide relationship counseling through the means of Couples Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We specialize in providing a schedule driven process through our implementation of CBT. We believe that teaching couples new and healthy routines that are repetitive in nature will eventually change their thought process. Thoughts create feelings, feelings create behavior, and behavior reinforces those new and healthy thought processes. While in therapy the couple will heal and grow their relationship which will bring stability to their new found sobriety.
  • Does Broadway offer sober living for couples?
    Broadway Treatment Center does not currently have their own sober living facility. We do however, have many partners in the area that provide comfortable and stable sober living environments. We understand how important it is for our clients to feel secure and safe during their transition back into their community. We will make sure that our clients have the best sober living facilities available to them if they decide that they need to take the extra step in their recovery process.
  • What are the payment options for couples treatment?
    Broadway Treatment Center participates with most major insurance companies. Our intake coordinator can verify your insurance benefits. We occasionally take clients on a scholarship basis. Members of our local community have generously donated scholarships for people to attend treatment that otherwise could not afford it. Please contact us today to discuss your options.
