SAN DIEGO, April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CouplesRehabs.org is known for providing information about drug treatment programs for couples. The website releases new information and statistics about drug and alcohol abuse and its effects on relationships. Substance abuse is unfortunately prevalent in the United States. According to the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, approximately 40 million Americans aged 12 and over currently struggle with addiction.

An additional 80 million Americans have been categorized as “risky substance users” – individuals whose substance abuse habits present a threat to public safety and the user himself or herself. The ubiquity of drug abuse also suggests that millions of Americans currently have a partner who also struggles with substance abuse.

Intimate relationships depend on consistency, honesty and compromise, so it’s no surprise that addiction can greatly hinder the success of a romantic partnership. If one member of a relationship is currently grappling with substance abuse or if both parties are struggling with addiction, it’s critical to acquire assistance from an inpatient drug rehab for couples as quickly as possible.

The longer addiction is able to inflict damage on a relationship, the less likely that relationship will survive the road to recovery.

Maintaining a healthy, peaceful family life becomes extremely difficult when a partner is currently active in their addiction. According to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), drug and alcohol abuse in the home can contribute directly to an increase in fighting between partners. It is not uncommon for this aggression to escalate into separation, divorce or instances of domestic violence.

The problem becomes even more toxic when tension created by substance abuse encourages one or both partners to continue their drug or alcohol use. When children are in the home, the consequences of a negative spiral of substance abuse and tension can be even more devastating. To learn more about attending a couples detox and treatment program that caters to married couples or those in a relationship contact the company listed.
