How does couples therapy help?

Couples therapy will give you and your partner the opportunity to talk through the issues that you’ve been having with a neutral third-party observer. But more than that, the observer will be a skilled therapist who can offer you both suggestions to help your relationship thrive.

Having access to this type of support can help you break through relationship deadlocks, reignite your passion for one another, and move forward together with a happier, healthier life.

Who needs couples therapy?

Couples therapy can be a good fit for any pair of partners who aren’t getting the same joy out of their relationship together that they did in the past. Couples therapy could be right for you if you:

  • Constantly fight with one another
  • Are struggling to find common ground on a major life decision
  • Have grown apart
  • Are struggling with a serious problem like a substance dependency issue or cheating

If issues like these are negatively impacting your relationship, then couples therapy could be just what you need to finally move on from them.

Can couples therapy be part of a substance abuse treatment plan?

Couples therapy can absolutely be part of your couples rehab & substance abuse treatment plan. If you or your partner have been struggling with a substance dependency problem, then couples therapy could help you figure out how to move on from it.

This is especially important if both you and your partner have been dealing with substance abuse issues. In these situations, you both may contribute to the other person’s addiction in subtle ways.

Working with a couples therapist can help you discover how you impact one anothers’ addictions and come closer together as you both work towards your sobriety goals.

Does insurance cover couples therapy?

Your insurance plan may or may not cover couples therapy. There are no legal obligations for insurance plans to cover this type of treatment. But yours still might.

The best way to figure it out is to contact your insurance company directly. They can let you know about the type of coverage that you have for couples therapy.
