Couples in Recovery Workshops

Have Each Other’s Backs Again! Couples in Recovery Workshop

What: Interactive workshop supporting couples in recovery to heal, reconnect, rebuild trust, and strengthen their relationship by learning and practicing research-based healthy relationship skills.

Whether your relationship is in crisis or robust, couples can always hone their relationship skills and benefit from reflecting with other like-minded couples about what it means to be a couple in recovery, and decide as a couple, your unique vision for your relationship.

When: Sunday, April 14, 2019; 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Where: Denver Family Therapy Center, 4891 Independence St., Ste 165, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033

Why: Divorce rates are 4-7 times higher for couples with addiction issues. Therefore, Dr. Robert Navarra (with the Gottman Institute) recommends that earlier couples work is necessary in contrast to the old model, which was “stabilize the recovery so couples conflict doesn’t upset the recovery”. Current research shows instead that “Relationship satisfaction contributes to recovery!”

Cost: $250 per couple for an 8-hour workshop, lunch, and materials.

Hone Your Relationship Skills: Aftercare Program Presentation

What: Interactive presentation to increase Aftercare and Alumni clients’ confidence and skills in creating a long-lasting, fulfilling intimate relationship

When: Monday-Friday; 90 minutes

Where: Addiction Treatment Centers

Why: Recovery is a time to positively transform all areas of your life (emotional, physical, spiritual, social, etc.), yet few addictions treatment programs are able to provide education and therapy on the topic of healthy intimate relationship skills.

Also, current research by The Gottman Institute (2016) demonstrates the correlation between the health of the couple relationship and successful individual recoveries.

Cost: Free

Rebuilding Trust Workshop

What: Interactive presentation to inform and support Aftercare and Alumni Clients to develop evidenced-based knowledge and skills in rebuilding trust in all of their relationships (including trusting oneself). This information can apply to past (ex. family of origin) and present relationships, and empower individuals to be more conscious in cultivating trusting relationships in the future.

When: Monday-Friday 90 minutes

Where: Addiction Treatment Centers

Why:  “Trust issues” are one of the greatest problems identified by couples and families affected by addiction. People in early recovery often ask, “When will my family (friends, boss, etc.) trust me again?!” This workshop was developed to provide healing, guidance and empowerment to all individuals open and willing to learn how trust is formed, what causes betrayal, and how to rebuild the trust they wish to restore in their relationships.

Cost: Free

Have Your Partner's Back and Heart

Individuals in recovery deserve to have a partner by their side with whom they can enjoy their recovery journey, and their significant others deserve healing, trust restored, and a mutually loving and secure relationship as well. By changing your relationship, you give your children the best gift ever: a model for a healthy, long-lasting, fulfilling intimate relationship!

We learned how to rebuild trust

“We learned how to rebuild trust and find ways to build a stronger foundation after the devastation active alcoholism and porn addiction has caused in our marriage.”

You’re not alone

“Marriage is hard work whether or not you’re in treatment. You’re not alone. There is support.”

My partner and I wanted to strengthen our relationship

“This was my first couples workshop and I really enjoyed it because my partner and I wanted to strengthen our relationship and this was just the beginning.”
