To meet the needs of our population, Rising Roads has developed relationship repair work centered around common relational issues women face. Our clinicians teach clients how to foster healthy relationships.
Healthy Relationships in Recovery
Humans are social creatures, and our relationships often define us. We aren’t just women—we’re wives, mothers, daughters, friends, and coworkers. With so many important people in our lives, it’s easy to fall into unhealthy habits like codependency. Some women come to Rising Roads in the midst of turbulent, abusive marriages, wondering what they’re doing wrong. Others struggle to differentiate between their inner circle and casual acquaintances.
Our relationship repair workshops help these clients to identify harmful patterns, choose the right people, rebuild connections, and communicate effectively. We believe that these skills are among the most crucial for women in the early stages of recovery.
Relationships as Triggers
No romantic, familial, or platonic relationship is perfect all the time. Strong ties also come with a host of emotions that can elicit extreme reactions. These triggers are usually tied to deep insecurity, fear of change, and past trauma. Most people react instinctively when an obstacle appears—withdrawing from their loved one, blaming them, yelling, or crying. Without the proper tools, they may also cope by drinking, using drugs, partying, or otherwise diverting the painful feelings associated with interpersonal problems.
Rising Roads’ relationship repair workshops are designed to help women articulate their needs, confront uncomfortable feelings, and establish open communication with loved ones. In the long run, this fosters closeness and reduces the risk of relapse.
Note: Rising Roads also assists women whose partners have become abusive or addicted. Please raise any concerns with your therapist.
