Can My Husband Still Recover From His Drug Addiction?

Question by allie: Can my husband still recover from his drug addiction?
I’m starting to lose hope. My husband is addicted to pot. After months of negotiation, he finally agreed to enter a drug rehab and recieve treatment. The thing is, I don’t think any program works for him. He just finished his second treatment program and I don’t think it made any changes. He still smokes pot. Do I have to ask him to enter another drug rehab? Do I have to finally give up on him?

I think there’s a group for the spouses of addicts, called Narc-Anon. You should look into it. I think that, ultimately, it would be healthier to leave him, as he’s not going to change as long as you’re there. Your leaving will either give him the impetus to change, or at least you get away from him and his addiction. Some things can’t be fixed unless the person chooses to, and your husband is choosing dope over you.

You shouldn’t lose hope. There are many reasons why he is still an addict despite the two rehab programs he’s attended. The first reason is: maybe he’s not interested. It’s possible that he agreed to enter a rehab just because of you. It may be because he just wants to end the discussion. He wants to make you happy so he did it. The problem is, he has to do it for himself too. Another thing is, maybe the program just wasn’t right for him. Maybe it was too much to handle. Be patient enough to look for treatment programs that might be more suitable to his needs. Look for doctors and counselors that he will listen to. After all, Lindsay Lohan entered three different rehabs. Maybe the third one is your husband’s lucky charm too. It’s also a possibility that he is not ready to give up smoking yet. Talk to your husband and ask him what he feels. I advise you not to leave him. You might be his only hope.
