Behavioural Marital Therapy (BMT)

We Do Recover

Behavioural marital therapy is an approach used to strengthen marriages by learning and improving participative skills such as communication, negotiation and acceptance.

In BMT, the focus is on improving communication and relationship dynamics between partners, as these factors can heavily impact addiction and the chances of successful recovery. By involving both you and your spouse or partner, BMT aims to facilitate healing and strengthen your relationship while addressing addiction.

This therapy has a rich history within the addiction recovery community. It emerged during the 1970s when professionals recognized the need for a comprehensive approach that considers the influence of spouses or partners in addiction treatment. BMT quickly gained recognition for its effectiveness in creating long-lasting recovery outcomes.

During BMT sessions, trained therapists work with couples to identify and modify destructive patterns of behavior that may contribute to addiction or hinder recovery progress. This might include improving communication skills, setting healthy boundaries, and developing coping strategies. The ultimate goal is to create a nurturing and supportive environment that promotes ongoing sobriety and strengthens the relationship.

It’s important to note that BMT is not limited to people in a marital relationship. This therapy can also be adapted for couples who are dating, cohabiting, or in any committed relationship. The key aspect is the involvement of a significant other who can play a vital role in the recovery process.

By incorporating BMT into addiction treatment, rehab centers recognize the need to address the complex interplay between addiction and relationships. By involving your partner, you can both gain a deeper understanding of addiction and work together towards lasting recovery.
