It does not come as much of a surprise that recovering addicts are often faced with the added challenge of recovering their relationships, particularly during the early stages of recovery. Reinvigorating and learning to grow healthy levels of intimacy is an integral part of addiction recovery. Since substance abuse like alcoholism and drug addiction are often associated with secrecy, isolation, and social distancing, recovering alcoholics and addicts often start from ground zero when it comes to rebuilding the most important relationships in their lives. Intimacy, in this way, does not simply mean sexual or romantic relationships — it means rebuilding trust and cohesion with everyone closest to you, from your family members to your sponsor. That said, recovering addicts often experience issues in sexual and romantic intimacy as a result of the hang-ups from the time before they were sober.
