Recovering addicts are faced with many challenges, and these challenges can often extend to their romantic partners. During the recovery period, couples often struggle with overcoming feelings of betrayal and frustration, and may have a hard time rebuilding trust and closeness. While there are many resources available to recovering addicts, there are limited resources for the people who love them.

In Loving Someone in Recovery, therapist Beverly Berg offers powerful tools for the partners of recovering addicts. Based in mindfulness, attachment theory, and neurobiology, this book will help readers sustain emotional stability in their relationships, increase effective communication, establish boundaries, and take real steps toward reigniting intimacy.

The material in this book is drawn from the author’s successful Conscious Couples Recovery Workshop. With more than 25 years in the field, she has developed a unique set of exercises that address the issues faced by couples in recovery. This book addresses the roles that both partners play in recovery, and aims to help readers develop a new appreciation for one another and improve self-confidence and acceptance.

The road to recovery is never an easy one, but by building a strong support system, the chances of success are exponentially greater. For more information on Berg’s work, visit consciouscouplesrecovery.com

User Review  - Jaky - Goodreads

This book is genius. It has revealed truths in my life that I knew were there but did not have a way to describe them. I recommend this book to anyone who is co-dependent OR is in a relationship with someone who has/had an addiction to something. Read full review

User Review  - Sara - Goodreads

The title seemed perfect, and the focus on mindfulness was exactly what I was looking for. However, the tone was just too much. If I want to have someone else tell me what I think, I can call my mom. Read full review
