Couples Substance Abuse Recovery – Therapists and Counselors in Charlotte

Are you a committed couple that’s fighting for your marriage after one or both of you have had a substance abuse problem? We understand the difficult days ahead of you, and we know the mixed feelings that go into this very tough but defining period of your lives. We are here to help.

An Unexpected Situation

When you’re amid substance abuse, deciding to seek treatment—and going through the treatment—may seem all-encompassing. But once you initially become clean, new questions may arise.

As a recovering alcoholic or user, you may be asking yourself:

  • Will my spouse ever really trust me again?
  • Am I giving up on my social life to stay clean and sober?
  • How much more therapy can I handle?
  • Will we ever regain our intimacy?
  • How much do my family and friends have to know about our situation?
  • How can I ever make up for what I’ve put the family through?

Thriveworks Charlotte counselors will work with you to identify tools and techniques that will help you heal and grow. We discuss processing resentments and re-opening the lines of true communication. This will allow you to help explain these feelings to your partner and the things they missed when they were absent from your life.

At Thriveworks Charlotte, we know firsthand what it takes to make a marriage work while recovering from substance use.

What Will Couple’s Substance Abuse Counseling Be Like?

In traditional couples counseling, the couple comes to therapy together and discusses their current situation with the therapist. If they’re having disagreements over finances, the therapist will help them determine what their priorities are and how to discuss those effectively. If they’re having trouble communicating, they will be taught new techniques for effective communication. Much the same goes on during a couple’s substance abuse counseling.

In the couple’s substance abuse counseling, the couple will also be seen together. The therapist will ask each person to be open about what they’re feeling and experiencing. I

Thriveworks Charlotte counselors know how difficult it is to ask for help. Their goal is to help others address and overcome the pain of that impact.

I have been seeing Terryn Maher for a couple of months now and she is awesome!! Very knowledgeable, attentive, thorough, thoughtful, caring, etc. I could go on for awhile. I’ve been in counseling with another therapist for about 14 years but I already feel like I’m getting so much more from working with Terryn. Thriveworks on a whole has been great to work with as well. They are easy to work with and schedule appointments with. I was nervous about working with a company over directly with just the therapist but it has actually worked out well. I highly recommend them!

I've worked with Mrs. Matson for close to a year now and I can say with certainty that she's a great counselor to go to for help with emotional regulation and understanding, grief management, and processing trauma in healthy and beneficial ways. Her use of meditation techniques to get to the root of my emotions and habits have helped me understand so much about myself and why I operate the way I do. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone just starting out looking for a good counselor, or anyone looking for a friendly empathetic professional who listens well and draws from a wealth of information to provide really quality services.

I have seen Dr. Daniel Stillwell for a year for individual and couples counseling and I trust him immensely. He is a skilled, authentic, and highly competent professional. I’ve also referred him to others and they described the same. Thriveworks staff have been very helpful with insurance and appointments.

Adriana Blanco is wonderful. I never felt any judgement from her during our sessions. She is compassionate, firm and extremely knowledgeable. I could not see myself opening up as much with another counselor, thank you for putting her in my path.
