Educating yourself will help you understand and empathize with your partner, and also know the language and habits to avoid while helping them recover.

2. Find substance-free activities: One of the worst things you can when helping a partner recover is to put them in situations that may trigger the desire to break sobriety. As a supportive partner, you can help by finding fun activities or events that don’t involve substance use. You can also communicate and set boundaries about which behaviors are acceptable between you and your partner.
