"What should I tell her?" is one of the first questions I hear from an addict who wants to protect his marriage. Read for more.

Your Partner's Role in Your Addiction and Recovery

My Partner

Dr. Doug Weiss - 7/30/2007

Your partner or spouse has probably suffered in many ways from your addiction including the inability to be emotionally intimate, financial loss, humiliation due to your behavior and the list goes on. If she is deciding to work this out with you as you recover, you are very fortunate and in my experience you would be in the minority.

  5. Have you acted out with another...
