Best Answer

"Like any romantic relationship, dating a recovering addict can have its challenges. If you're realistic about what you can handle and what kind of support you can offer, chances are the qualities you're looking for in a partner can be found in a recovering addict just as easily as someone with no history of addiction.


  • get the facts about their recovery

  • educate yourself about the disease of addiction

  • support their recovery program

  • know your limits


  • make snap judgments

  • rescue or enable

  • discount your own needs

  • ignore the signs of relapse"
