Our expert says:
Normally the significant others are the one's who have to set the boundaries with the addict who is either in active dependence, recovery or relapse. Perhaps you and your husband should consider joining a support/self-help groups such as AA and Al-anon - I have seen promising results in the past. It is also important that he is seeking therapetuic intervention from a psychaitrist (as there is likely to be another co-occuring problem such as depression etc) and other relevant mental health professionals. Remember - sometimes relapse can be considered as part of the recovery process - but it is best to seeks the advice and guidance of a mental health practicioner that can guide you on this.
