Abstract

Given the interdependence of romantic partnerships, close others are among the first to experience and respond to an individual’s substance misuse. This chapter explores stigma related to substance use as it pertains to individuals’ own perceptions of themselves as a romantic partner, as well as to partners’ perceptions of the disorder and perceived stigma from outside sources. We finish by covering effective therapeutic approaches that target substance use disorders (SUDs) at the couple level, for individuals struggling with substance use disorders, for concerned partners, and for the couple together.
