Couples In Recovery

Couples In Recovery is for those couples who want to create a great relationship.

Details

It is not the addiction that defines who we are or the quality of our relationship. An intimate relationship is not automatically healed or begins to flourish when one or both people in the relationship, become sober. Like sobriety, a loving relationship needs to be a daily decision. Couples In Recovery is for those couples who want to create a great relationship. It is an enjoyable and practical proactive support group. Couples will be expected to commit and participate in weekly activities for group meetings. Though not a 12-step program, it is great addition for those attending one. This group will guide couples who want to learn how to start or renew their relationship. Topics covered in this support group include the addiction cycle, co-dependency, social stigma, the importance of effective communication, conflict resolution, healthy boundaries, and much more. There is no cost to attend. This group is facilitated by David Kaufman, Director of Outreach & Education. The Couples In Recovery group runs every Monday evening from 7:30-9:00 pm on ZOOM.

It’s heartwarming to see the work JACS does in our community up close. I watched as their professionals educated community members on addiction triggers and mental health obstacles, which ensured those in the audience they were not alone in their daily struggles. Never have I been able to see an organization’s impact so clearly in such a short period of time.

After doing drugs for over 42 years I had had enough and desperately wanted to stop ! Now 3 years clean I still attend meetings at JACS. If I would have known that recovery is this good I would have done it a long time ago.

I had long know I was a sex addict and didn’t know where to turn. My life had been unmanageable and I was not able to control my addiction. The first couple of COVID months were extremely isolating and hard for me. Finding distractions and projects was not a solution to my addiction. JACS is offering fellowship, support, structure, counselling, a safe open honest space and hope. I am grateful for the support and opportunity JACS offers.
