Couples in RecoveryEvery relationship needs help from time to time.

But couples who are grappling with addiction issues — with alcohol or drugs — have special needs above beyond those in a regular, everyday relationship. The 12-step recovery process can bring couples closer together, but it’s often a challenging time for the health of the relationship, too.

So we’re proud to introduce Couples in Recovery, a blog devoted to these kinds of issues, with Elaine Leadem, MSW, CSAT and John Leadem, MSW, MS, CSAT.

Elaine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Elaine holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Marywood University. John is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Marywood University and a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Administration from the University of Scranton. They both enjoy specialized training by Patrick Carnes, PhD, and they both sport dual national certifications for Sex and Multiple Addiction Therapist by the International Institute for Trauma & Addiction Professionals.

Please give the Leadems a warm Psych Central welcome over at their blog today!
