We spend a lot of time with people in recovery. A LOT.

Our team has helped people in the very beginning days of sobriety- helping them find support, make a plan for getting sober, and learning how to be accountable.  

We’ve helped people in the ‘messy middle’ as they are surveying the damage of addiction to their work, relationships, and self-esteem.  

We’ve helped couples repair betrayal wounds and work toward healing and repair in families.

A woman we recently worked with said “I’ve done so much to learn new ways of living and I’ve been so frustrated about how I have still felt stuck.”  She went on to say:

“Before I heard Worth Recovery and Thanks for Sharing I didn’t realize I hadn’t worked in the relationship space.”

Background

Let’s back up a bit - Worth Recovery was founded in 2015 as a podcast and coaching service for Women in Sex Addiction recovery.  (You can read more about Amy and Worth Recovery here.) Jon and Jackie started the Thanks for Sharing podcast which is focused on helping people understand “all things recovery, relationships, and healing.” (You can read more about Thanks for Sharing here.)  We’ve been on each other’s podcasts, interviewed a lot of the same guests, and most importantly, we work to reach the same people - people who are reeling from the effects of addiction.

As we talk to therapists, coaches, treatment centers, 12-step participants, and clients - we hear a similar concern:

“I got sober, now what?”

“It seems like what got me here isn’t going to keep me here.”

  

What is the “relationship space?”

So much of what we know about what works in recovery points back to the role that safe, supportive, healthy relationships play in helping someone to not only stay sober, but to heal the wounds that underlie addiction.

Addiction begins and ends with relationships.  Most addicts are primed for intense and lasting escape by their relationships that felt like they were too much (enmeshment) or not enough (neglect) and often both at the same time.  Addiction develops as a coping mechanism to make the relationships we have available to us tolerable.

Even after getting sober, a person can still carry the wounds and fears from relationships that were unsafe, confusing, or abusive.

We find that many of the people we work with start to hunger for relationships and connection as they get sober - and that is a great thing!  Nobody was designed to be alone.

Many recovering people struggle to know where to get started when it comes to Dating in Recovery, relating to the family they grew up in or working through grief and loss.  We can help.
