When Your Partner Has a Drug or Alcohol Problem: A Guide for Gay and Bisexual Men

It’s tough enough when a friend has a problem with drugs or alcohol. It’s even more complicated when your partner does. It’s simply harder to see things objectively or to separate yourself from the effect of your partner’s addiction when you’re so emotionally, physically, and often financially intertwined. He needs help, and you need help. So who’s left to help the relationship? Can we both get through this together?

This is one of two practical advice guides for gay/bi men who want to help a loved one involved in problematic drug or alcohol use. Special topics include:

* Understanding addiction
* Stages of addiction in relationships
* What helps and what doesn’t
* Taking care of yourself
* FAQS about treatment
* How to support recovery

This booklet offers some insight and advice on how to support your partner, yourself, and your relationship through this difficult period.
