    So, a member of my household is an addict.
    He/she is currently in rehab (again) and this time wants to go from the rehab to a recovery house as opposed to moving back in here because that would be a change. However there are insurance issues to deal with, etc and chances are he/she WILL be back here for a while before going to the recovery house IF they can go at all.

    Here's where it gets really awful...

    The counselor said that when the housemate returns, the house should be free of the use of ANY AND ALL addictive substances (besides cigarettes). And this includes alcohol, even though alcohol is not his/her weakness. We need to be completely substance-free.

    Of course I'll do it because I love this person and will to anything to aide in their recovery, but MY GOD IN HEAVEN...

    It's tough because you aren't the one with the problem. But just keep reminding yourself you would do ANYTHING to keep that person from going back to their old habits.

    the reason for that is when addicts quit one addiction, they often substitute it with another..
    but you're a sweetheart for making that sacrifice :)

    That's all AA does. Substitute their program in place of the booze addiction.
